Out of Town Films is a group of friends dedicated to the art of music documentation that has collected nearly 50 video recordings of some of the best indie talent to pass through Philadelphia this year. Exclusive interviews and an intimate, front row seat to Dr. Dog, Nicos Gun, We Were Promised Jetpacks, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Delta Rae, and Margot & The Nuclear So and So's, among many others, is just a taste of what is available on their Youtube page.
This Wednesday at Johnny Brenda's, Out of Town Films will be kicking-off their first in a series of showcase concerts featuring Free Energy and Edison. Out of Town Films' co-founder Michael James Murray plays lead guitar in Edison, so this night will truly be about celebrating. Plus, they will be streaming their debut album Living Room this week on SoundCloud so you can get a taste for the sweet tunes you can expect to hear. Stay up to date with Edison's other upcoming happenings by following their Tumblr and Twitter.

You don’t have to wait until Halloween this year to dust off that perfect beaded dress or press that white tie, because our National Constitution Center will become a swanky speakeasy this Thursday, October 18th and no, you don’t have to go through any telephone booths to find this one! Just make your way to the Center’s Grand Hall Lobby for The National Constitution Center’s Bootleggers Ball from 5:30 until 8:30. The night will be fixed with all the musings and allure of doing something you know you shouldn’t.
Transport back to the twenties and do the Charleston! You will be surrounded by Jazz Age music, courtesy of the Ben Mauger Orchestra, and people learning the Lindy Hop right next to The Mixed Pickles Vintage Dance Co. Let those inhibitions go, it’s Prohibition night! And don’t forget to take a themed photo op, because looking at those the next day are always the most fun.
All this jazz will be $35 for museum members and $40 for non-members (ages 21+). Reservations include advanced access to American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition BEFORE anybody else even gets to view it. Call 215.409.6700 for reservations or head right here.
With over 100 films from 35 countries to screen during this 11-day event, which runs from Thursday, October 18 to Sunday, October 28, you should start making that popcorn stockpile today. The Festival will open with David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook, which recently won the coveted Audience Award following its premiere at last month’s Toronto International Film Festival, and is already garnering award buzz. The Festival will close with Flight, Robert Zemeckis' long-awaited return to live-action filmmaking. The Festival will truly be remarkable from start to finish.
Tickets will go on-sale for Philadelphia Film Society members on Friday, September 28, and to the general public beginning Monday, October 2nd. Tickets may be purchased through the Festival website, over the phone by calling 267-908-4733, or in-person at the Prince Music Theater Box Office (1412 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103).

The Moonlight Movie series returns to Mt. Airy this summer, presiding at the Lovett Library Park. Kicking off on June 22nd, films will screened every Friday, running until August 17th.
These free screenings sponsored by MT. Airy USA, The Free Library of Philadelphia, and the Trolley Car Diner were a major hit last year, with over 100 people bringing their lawn chairs and picnic necessities to enjoy movies such as The Princess Bride, Back To The Future, March of the Penguins, The Sandlot, Finding Nemo, and E.T.
This year there are two additional Fridays for even more moonlight movie enjoyment. Included with the film screenings, viewers can indulge in Dining Under The Stars. Local food vendors will be setting food stands right outside of the park site from 6:30-8:30 PM, just in time for the screenings to start.
