Summer might not officially end until September 21, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t feel like fall—from the shorter days and longer nights to the throngs of college students carrying backpacks and smoking cigs outside Starbucks (or maybe that’s just my neighborhood.) Luckily for all, September is also prime record release season…here are 8 records we’re excited about this fall.
David Byrne and St. Vincent, Love This Giant. When two people as individually brilliant and creative as David Byrne and Annie Clark collaborate, you know the results are going to be incredible—and this record (described by Byrne as “a more intertwined collaboration than most I've done”) promises to be a high-energy romp through horn-laced experimentations. Check out the vid for first single “Who” right now—then stream the whole thing for free via NPR.
School is back in session, Made in America Festival has passed, and summer’s end is undeniably here. There’s only one thing that you can do about that: give summer a send off that you’ll never forget. How, you ask? With Locals + Only End of Summer Sunset Cruise.
Oh yes, you read correctly, the DJs who have been bringing you your favorite Monday pool party all summer long are sailing you into the sunset, boozing you up and making you dance. On Monday Sunday, September 10th 16th at 6 pm, a boat will be docked in between Dave & Busters and Cavanughs, about 100 yards from Morgan’s Pier. When it leaves the dock, you better be on board for four hours of free beer PLUS future classics & hot creations on the upper deck by Dave P. & Sammy Slice and Jayo & Ed Blammo. In the cabin will be a Tropical Danse party provided to you by the Bottom Power crew: Dave Tidey, Russel Alexander and Tony Modica.
This past weekend Made in America wasn't just about the music, the festival fashion was out of this world. We picked out the hottest, wildest and most festive outfits that our fab photographer, Marie Alyse Rodriguez, captured and put together the 11 looks we love at Made in America:
1. The 'tude, the flowers, the tank...we're loving it all.
2. Four ladies that put together four rad outfits. They're into the holiday spirit.
3.Best dressed besties. Adorable.
All summer long excitement was in the air as people waited anxiously for the arrival of the highly anticipated Made in America Festival that Jay-z announced in May. This past weekend, the festival finally arrived, and it was just as magical as we'd all hoped it would be, if not more.
With acts like Run DMC, Pearl Jam, Drake, The Hives, Calvin Harris, Santigold, a surprise performance from Kanye West and of course, Jay-z himself, this is an event that Philadelphia will never forget. Photos by Marie Alyse Rodriguez.
