Eleven a.m., waking up in the morning
Gotta smell fresh, oops- I just fell downstairs
Gotta smoke a bowl, gotta have cereal
[Insert lyrics of choice here]
Drinking on and on, everybody’s stumbling
Gotta get down to Locust Walk
Gotta doze in class, then I see my FRANDS
Happy first day of the semester, everyone! Don’t screw it up.
Jennifer Bolande: Landmarks
Who: Institute of Contemporary Art
When and where: Wednesday, 6-8 p.m. until March 11; ICA (36th and Sansom)
Why: It’s no secret that we like the ICA (a lot), and for good reason– they bring the raddest ish to Philly. Like Jennifer Bolande! Choreographer, conceptual artist and innovative photographer, Bolande has an oeuvre that spans more than three decades. Her work will go on view starting tomorrow evening at a members-only reception. Not an ICA member? Check out the exhibition any other night before it closes in March.
Ravi Coltrane Quartet
Who: Ravi Coltrane Quartet
When and where: Saturday, 7-8:30 p.m.; Annenberg Center
Why: Son of jazz legends John and Alice Coltrane, Ravi Coltrane has gained fame over the years for his saxophonin’ skills, earning a Grammy nomination a few years back. On Saturday, he’ll be joined by friends Drew Gress on bass, E.J. Strickland on drums and Luis Perdomo on the piano.
Megawords at the PMA
Who: Philadelphia Museum of Art
When and where: Saturday, 8 p.m. until April 22; PMA (26th and Ben Franklin)
Why: Megawords, an arts and culture magazine, will be moving into the PMA on Saturday, the opening day for Zoe Strauss’s new exhibition. The opening day celebration is sold out (womp), but make some time to stop by the Megawords installation in the South Auditorium Gallery for music, film screenings and more.
BELOW and BEYOND
Who: The Rotunda
When and where: Sunday, 7:30 p.m. (see website for other dates); The Rotunda (4oth and Walnut)
Why: A “collaborative performance experiment” (?), “BELOW and BEYOND” is an original play inspired by submerged rivers and fracking. The description makes note of the usage of accordions, water buffalo, puppets, ~*the human imagination*~, house boats and ohmygod this is so strange we just want to go to see what happens. Tickets run between $5 and $10.
