8/08-8/09: G.Love-ing, UFC 101, and Rocking at Fuzzstock


NEW HOPE REVIVAL: Make your way out to New Hope for the first ever Fuzzstock. The all day music and arts festival aims to bring back the floundering scene in New Hope. Automatic Fire, Dive, Fosterchild, Stolen Rhodes, the School of Rock All-Stars and Grape Street Riot will all play in this free event. Get out for some good music and help return New Hope to the way it used to be.

UFC 215: With their first major bout in the city, Ultimate Fighting Championship makes its way to Philly tonight. In the main event, BJ Penn will take on Kenny Florian for the lightweight championship title. UFC 101 wants to take Philly by storm, and has already won over local hero Shane Victorino. The fighting starts at 7 p.m.

DO THE DOO WOP: Take a trip back to a more mellow, peaceful time at the Philadelphia Doo Wop Festival. Penn’s Landing will play host to some of the best names in Doo Wop as they  belt out the tunes of yesteryear. The event is free, but donations to the Philadelphia Veterans Multi-Service Education Center will be accepted. The event runs from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m.


PHILADELPHONIC- Philly local G. Love returns home tonight and he’s bring his Special Sauce as well as a little-known guy named Jason Mraz. G. Love, best known for jamming with Jack Johnson on a regular basis, is a great artist in his own right and this is a show that you don’t want to miss. Plus Jason Mraz isn’t half bad either. The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are $45.

HIP HOP MEMORIAM: By now, you have probably heard how David Sale was brutally beaten and killed by three men during a brawl over spilled beer. What you may not know is Sale’s family has set up a memorial fund in his name. So the Trocadero stepped up and will host a Stop the Violence Hip Hop Show where proceeds from the door will go to the David Sale Memorial Fund. Come out and enjoy drinks, live music and fun all while supporting a good cause.

THE PERFECT CRIME: Based on the incredible true story, "Never the Sinner: The Leopold and Loeb Story" tells the story of two men who thought themselves smart enough to commit the perfect murder. As part of the Mauckingbird Theatre Company,  "Never the Sinner" touches upon themes of morality, love and murder. The play also digs into the debate of capital punishment and the role of the media in society. Tickets cost $20 for adults, $18 for seniors and $15 for students. The curtain opens at 2 p.m.
