Posted August 17th, 2012

Tomorrow the high temperature is only 79! Perhaps the end of the world is not nigh. In addition to chilling outside, here are some things that are going on.

>>>Friday: Oh wait, this one is outside too. ?uestlove spins at Morgan’s Pier. Jumps off at 9:00 pm, $5.

>>>All weekend: Philadelphia Folk Festival. All weekend. Saturday: Steve Earle! Sunday: Trombone Shorty! And if you can’t bear to leave the cozy confines of the city, it’s live-streamed this year.

>>>Saturday: PowerPoint karaoke, hosted by Johnny Showcase, with the cast of THE GIANT SQUID. Did you know that THE GIANT SQUID is coming back this fall?! Word is bond. Swim Pony and the Berserker Residents are remounting that jawn. Do people still say jawn? I feel like I’ve heard it less often lately. And what is PowerPoint karaoke? Well, it is also called Battledecks, apparently, and this video shows some people improv-presenting at SXSW:

Fun? You betcha! Fergie’s, 7:30 pm. You are also promised FUNdraising.
