Major Part Of Philadelphia’s Music History Meets The Wrecking Ball

The Sound of Philadelphia combined lush strings and horns with an irresistible dance beat, the distinctive signature of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff. They turned out chart-topping songs from their headquarters at 309 South Broad for 40 years until an arson fire damaged it beyond repair five years ago.

Philly Tech Week

I went to the Tetris game at the Cira Center last year and it was a blast. Apparently there will be a life sized Connect 4 game during the opening event at Dilworth Park. The city should make these types of things permanent. Can you imagine a permanent video game installation? That would be amazing. If the city wants to draw young people, I don't think you can go wrong with public video games. I think the video game industry is larger than the film industry.

In any case, I'm looking forward to all the game developers and techies in one space this year. Will anyone from EB be going to Tech Week?

  • I'm planning on going to the Arcade in Dilworth Park - to play all the games. =)

Today, the cast of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead sat down for a read through of Tom Stoppard's utterly hilarious script! Minor characters from Hamlet take center stage as they journey on a boat taking Prince Hamlet to England...sailing to a fate Shakespeare has already scripted for them. It's a spectacle that is philosophical, clownish, and complete with a pirate-ambush. Tickets are available and performances start May 20!
