The Weekender: What You’re Doing and Why

Posted August 14th, 2009

>>>All Weekend: The Philadelphia Folk Festival. Tomorrow looks best, with Iron and Wine (whom I endorse) and the Decemberists, who have spent the past six years confusing me, as I still can’t decide if they’re good. Ticket info and lineups at the PFF website.

>>>Saturday: magazine has this Red Bull-sponsored block party race thing going on; their new issue drops Saturday. I’m liking that Mad Decent is taking over 12th and Spring Garden, and I’ll probably be there if I can escape the ziggurat of boxes that has taken over my apartment. The release party at the Piazza sounds pretty solid too. I think everything’s free, which is the price I want to see.

>>>Sunday: Rising star Kurt Vile plays Vox Populi gallery. $10, 8:00 pm.
