It’s a great feeling opening the annual Guide to the Philadelphia Fringe Festival for the first time. Soon enough it will be thumbed through and marked up, with great stains, folds, and a nice coffee circle. But for now its pristine, its contents unexplored. Fringe Members have started to receive them in the mail, and they will soon be in coffee shops around the city. But why not celebrate its arrival at the Guide Launch Party, this Friday at FringeArts La Peg restaurant. Featuring:
8-10pm DJ Jersey Dan, spinning your favorite songs on 100% vinyl.
10:30pm and on Red 40 & The Last Groovement: Hawaiian Punch’s got nothing on the juice this tangy funk/R&B outfit’s got dripping down their legs.
And Fringe Guides. Lots of Fringe Guides. Outside in the beer garden if it doesn’t rain/inside if it does. [FringeArts, 140 N/ Columbus Boulevard] August 7, 2015; fringearts.com.
