Wednesday, April 2
8 p.m. – Bedtime Stories: Cocaine Sex Jamz, A Tribute To Hipsters, $5. Sez the host Gregg Gethard:
Set to perform are:
Skinny jeans. Fixed gear bikes. Loft housing near Frankford Ave. Vampire Weekend's popularity. We live in a city where 55% of the population are college graduates, 42% have been victimized in a violent crime and 89% have their own DJ night at Johnny and Brenda's.
At the next edition of Bedtime Stories, your favorite Philadelphia-area comedians will tackle the hipster phenomenon. To be discussed: hipster culture, indie rock, DJ nights and ways to make Philadelphia a lot more like Brooklyn was five years ago.
Meg and Rob
Not to mention a performance by the local hip-hop duo SGT. SASS after the comedy. PLUS, Gethard will announce the super secret, super special guest for the May edition.
