We just wanted to let everyone know that we are taking a break from blogging. So, this blog will be inactive for a little while. No worries, we have every intention of returning. During the site’s downtime we are going to give it a complete overhaul, refocus our blogging passion and start again. Please feel free to contact us with any suggestions for our new site. In the meantime, we’ll still add some Philly music love via our Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram pages. We’ll remember to keep everyone updated on our progress and when the new site will launch.

I’ve yet to experience the 2nd Street Festival for myself but with so many great acts (and several of my favorite artists) on the lineup I think I owe it to myself to check this festival out. And hopefully I’ll see you there too.
An immensely gifted singer, songwriter Adrien Reju has almost reached her goal on PledgeMusic that will help her fund the release of her new album. If you want to learn more about Reju’s campaign go here. Please do so soon because there are only 3 days left (probably more like 2 days at this point). And remember part of the money raised will go to Art Start.
Please check out Birdie Busch’s campaign too.
