Tell 'Em I'm Gone: Ashley Phillips @ International House

From hard work to cheerful child’s play, songs and chants have always kept time, collecting and sharing our stories as we go about our daily lives. In Tell ‘Em I’m Gone, singer-songwriter (and overall rockstar unicorn GRP extraordinaire) Ashley Phillips traces our songs of work and play from the folk music of the African Diaspora to its 21st-century forms.

Skillfully uniting the historical with the contemporary, Tell ‘Em I’m Gone spins out a thoughtful and joyous journey. Spanning the blues, soul, and original compositions, Ashley’s expressive voice, intricate guitar work, and masterful storytelling unite in a can't-miss performance.

Tickets are discounted by $5 when purchased online!

General Admission: $20 online / $25 in person

Under 30 and Arts Industry Professionals: $15 online / $20 in person

Philly Trans March

Philly Trans March is not only a rally and demonstration, but also a revolutionary movement. Open to people of all gender identities, expressions, and experiences, Philly Trans March welcomes everyone to join in this march for Justice, Equity and Liberation. Join us as we REMEMBER our loved ones and community members who have transitioned to ancestor; stand in solidarity and RESISTANCE against the hate, social injustice and inequality faced by Trans, Non-binary and Gender Non-conforming individuals; and honor our RESILIENCE as commUnity. 

Issues such as the unsolved cases in our own city; hate violence, specifically against Trans Women and People of Color, and the lack of official concern; oppressive healthcare policies, media misgendering, financial and housing insecurity; police brutality, workplace policies and employment discrimination, and the lack of resources for Trans, Non-binary and Gender Non-conforming Youth and Elders, are just some of the concerns being voiced upon in this year's March. 

Organized by members of Philly's Trans, Non-binary and Gender Non-conforming communities and accomplices, this endeavor is committed to creating a safer and more inclusive environment for everyone.

STARTING LOCATION: LOVE Park
1599 JFK Blvd, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19102

Weathervane Studio Concert: Ellen Siberian Tiger // Julia Rainer

Weathervane Studio Concert - Ellen Siberian Tiger // Julia Rainer

Julia Rainer has been making original music in Philadelphia since 2004. As a kid, her dad took her to see Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers—and her education progressed from there. Influenced by artists like Hank Williams (the original), Neil Young, Sam Cooke, Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, Nico, Television, Cat Power, and Aimee Mann, Rainer writes folk songs—that sometimes creep into other genres—about love, loss, depression, addiction, salvation, and the common difficulties of humanity. Her vocals, which have been described as powerful, sultry, smoky, and aching, along with her bare-bones melodic guitar playing are an honest depiction of her personal experience, that any feeling person can surely relate to.

First Time's a Charm

First Time's the Charm is back! What started in 2013 and happened again in 2016 will be held for a third time this summer. (COME OUT TO SUPPORT SEVERAL GRP SUPERSTARS!!!) 

The idea is simple: as members of the DIY music community we need to do everything we can to make our scenes less homogeneously white, straight, and male. To that end we are holding a two day concert made up of entirely new bands that must include women, people of color, queer, trans and gender non-conforming people, and those with disabilities.

While events like this are always important, we feel that within the current political climate they are even more necessary in order to provide a space for those who are most often pushed to the margins.
