The Philadelphia Film and Music Festival livens up the city this coming weekend. For those of you not familiar with it I’ll let the press release do the talking:

THE PHILADELPHIA FILM AND MUSIC FESTIVAL or “PHILLY F/M” for short) is a four-day festival taking place at over 30 music and film venues, with free outdoor stages, day parties and a record fair. Philly F/M will take place on Thursday, Sept 23 – Sunday, Sept 26th, 2010 and will feature a wide variety of regional, national and international musicians and films. The festival strives to be an annual event that effectively merges independent film and music in new and exciting ways. Instead of segregating them to different venues, the festival will combine the aural and the visual in dynamic settings to engage and foster new audiences for both mediums. Philly F/M will combine screenings with live performances, present a live, improvised film scoring series, screen music shorts and documentaries, curate a local music video expo to tie in the city’s rich musical landscape and screen outdoor films in unique settings. Philly F/M is headquartered at 2424 Studios (2424 E. York Street) in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood. In addition to serving as the Philly F/M headquarters, the “Skybox” will host a record fair and exhibitor area during the festival. This two-day (Saturday/Sunday) event is free and features record vendors and a variety of exhibitors showcasing their music and film related products.

To help you weed through the music choices for the next few days, I’ve scoured through the extensive schedule and made a list of some of the must see bands. Hope to see you around at a few of the shows, I’ll be out and about to as many as I can.

Come on out this weekend when our monthly Bag Of Songs Presents show moves to Saturday nights at our new location, JD McGillicuddy’s (next to Electric Factory). Kicking it all off this month will be Philly’s own North Lawrence Midnight Singers, whose sound runs deep into rootsy, folk, country territory well blended with a healthy dose of good old rock and roll. Imagine Elvis Costello backed up by The Band and you’ll have a good idea of what they sound like. ¬†Capping the night off will be a rare Philadelphia appearance by Bethlehem, PA legends, Creatures Of The Golden Dawn, the Mark Smith fronted psychedelic garage rock combo that also includes the incendiary lead guitar work of the one and only Brother JT. And best of all the whole mind blowing experience is FREE, that’s right, zero dinero, some come on down and get your late summer party on with two amazing bands on a Saturday night.
