North Lawrence Midnight Singers @ Khyber

This Philly group creates a rich, rollicking take on old-fashioned rock, rolling together the big, booming harmonies of Buddy Holly with the winding guitar work of American Beauty and the witticisms of Bob Dylan. They'll be playing at 9pm at the Khyber (56 S. 2nd St) along with The Rosewood Thieves and The MLM's. For more information visit

Jump/Cut @ The Adrienne's Second Stage

Paul wants to do more than make donut commercials. His girlfriend Karen wants to do more than write memoirs. So when the two join forces to make a documentary about Paul's bipolar friend Dave, it seems like the perfect project to get their creativity going. But as Dave's mind unravels, so does Karen and Paul's romance—and one devastating choice changes all their lives forever. The shows runs through Saturday, February 28 at the Adrienne Theater's Second Stage (2030 Sansom St). For more information visit

Pabst Blue Ribbon Art and Craft Fair @ 941 Theater

This themed craft show celebrates the iconic Pabst Blue Ribbon. There will be bands, food, fun, PBR themed arts & crafts and unbelievable prizes at 941 Theater (941 N. Front St) from 3pm. For more information visit

Secret History: The Philadelphia Story @ Painted Bride

This oral history production, part of Ping Chong & Company's Undesirable Elements series, explores the first-hand experiences of urban and suburban teenagers living in the Greater Philadelphia Region and how violence has shaped their lives. Individual histories are interwoven into a script that is performed by the actual teens, giving voice to personal stories too often left unspoken. The Village of Arts and Humanities has partnered with People’s Light & Theatre in the selection of students for this project to be performed at the Painted Bride Art Center (230 Vine St) on Saturday at 3pm and again at 8pm.
