Thursday: Rare Brews Tasting at Perch Pub
The Bruery ’s (Orange County, California) CFO Carl Katz, a Pennsylvanian native, is returning to celebrate Philadelphia Beer Culture on Thursday, August 23, 2012 at 6 PM at Perch Pub. He is celebrating with two great, rare Bruery offerings. The beers will be Oud Tart, a Flanders style red ale only available at the brewery, and Tart of Darkness, an oak barrel aged sour stout rarely seen.
Each beer will pour for just $5 from 6–7 PM (happy hour), and will be $10 for the rest of the night, or as long as they last.
Sure there’s probably only one upcoming concert that everyone’s talking about, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great acts coming before then (and without the rest of the East Coast, too.)
Mary J. Blige and D’Angelo have joined forces with the MJB Liberation Tour. The Liberation Tour starring “Queen of Hip-Hop Soul”, Mary J. Blige, acclaimed neo-soul singer-songwriter D’Angelo, and special guest Melanie Fiona comes to the Mann Friday, August 24th. This is sure to be R&B/Soul at its very finest!

Adventuredrum is a new dance band led by Philadelphia composer and percussionist Christopher Sean Powell, best known for his work in Need New Body and Man Man.

Adventuredrum members include those who have collaborated with the West Philly Orchestra, Fugazi’s Joe Lally, Dirty Projectors, Grandchildren, Pattern is Movement, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, and others. Merging new sounds and ideas with traditional drumming, this is a dance band for the future. These are the drums of tomorrow . . . today!
