The Weekender: What You’re Doing and Why

Posted July 8th, 2010

Do the twist:

>>>All weekend: QFest continues to roll. Previews and roundups in Philadelphia Weekly, Philebrity, and City Paper.

>>>Friday: Lunch break with Chubby Checker concert at City Hall. Noon! Free! Weird!

>>>Friday: Holiday-delayed First Friday. Good bets: Tiger Strikes Asteroid has “Lovetown, PA” upstairs from “Vox VI” at Vox Populi Gallery which is mere blocks from “A Guide to Salvation” at Space 1026.

>>>Saturday: Go find a state-run wine vending machine. Breathe into it to get your hooch. Contemplate how these make any sense. Quoth Keith Wallace of the Wine School of Philadelphia: “The process is cumbersome and assumes the worst in Pennsylvania’s wine consumers, that we are a bunch of conniving underage drunks.” Would we really have it any other way? If you find a machine, send us your pictures of blowing for booze.

>>>Saturday: Calling all dancers! Jumatatu Poe, who’s new dance Unstuck will be featured in 8 (eight choreographers / eight new works) is leading a FREE workshop with his company idiosynCrazy productions from 12–3 at UArts where he will explore the question “What if there were only this moment . . . forever?” E-mail for details and to reserve a spot.

>>>Sunday: Duh, you’re coming to ICA to see the Philip Glass documentary Glass: A Portrait of Philip in Twelve Parts, the first film in our series exploring the artists of Lucinda Childs’s Dance. ICA, free, 2:00 pm, RSVP please! To
