This week features the 2023 Philthfest, a showcase and celebration of Philly-area artists in the spirit of DIY and advocating for LGBTQ+ rights, communities, and creators. We’ve also got more classical music happenings to warm you up through the second half of the month and the weekly roundup features a variety of events—including a South Philly book crawl, a rare Christmas special screening that you might pity, and a compelling auditory experience filling our heads all the way from Dublin.
We also profile Philly legend Samori Coles, the founder of Lil’ Drummaboy Recordings, ahead of his new podcast launching this week.
Peace and love to you and yours.
