VIOLENCE AND GLITTER: ART SHOW
Thursday, Nov. 11
Indoor Rooftop Studios, 1712 N. 2nd St.
Self-dubbed an “exploration of dichotomy in art,” Violence and Glitter is sure to be an art exhibit unlike any other, with art that combines beauty, blood and picturesque pain. The viewing features artists from Boston to Philadelphia, as well as music and drinks, sans an entry fee. Event curator and creator Sarah Rado also set up a live, in-house drawing exhibition by Pennsylvania native Root222, as well as tours of artists’ studios within the building.
PROHIBITION: 1920s SPEAKEASY
Thursday, Nov. 11
Time, 1315 Sansom St.
Some people prefer looking at art, while others prefer immersing themselves in it. If you’re among the latter, head down to Time on Thursday, Nov. 11 at 8 p.m. donning your best prohibition-era outfit for a night of musical performances by Drew Nugent and the Midnight Society and The Infamous Miss Mae, a dance contest and now-legalized booze. Short on cash? Admission is only $5 if you use the password “Charlie” at the entrance. Attire is encouraged, but not required, so grab your dancing shoes and fedoras for a swingin’ night straight out of the roaring ‘20s.
Saturday, Nov. 13
Theatre of the Living Arts, 334 South St.
Infected Mushroom’s trance/electronic musical stylings have been declared among some of the greatest within the genre. This international legend is comprised of two Israeli-natives, Amit Duvdevani and Erez Eisen, who came together in Israel and moved base to Los Angeles to explode the U.S. trance scene. And explode they did; DJ Magazine, based in the United Kingdom, placed the duo among the Top 10 greatest disc jockeys in the world. Experience the legends on Saturday night at the TLA, but be sure to buy your tickets in advance – this is their second visit to Philadelphia this year, and they are expected to blow up the house.
SCREENING OF “SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD”
Monday, Nov. 15
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., movie begins at 8 p.m.
The Trocadero Theatre, 1003 Arch St.
The 21-and-over crowd can kiss its Monday blues goodbye and embrace its inner child at the Troc’s screening of “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” a comic series that became a feature-length film that hit movie theaters earlier this year. This isn’t just any movie screening, though; dress up as your favorite character from the movie to participate in a costume contest during the intermission, and you could win various paraphernalia prizes. If you arrive before 7 p.m., you’ll receive a free beer and free popcorn. If only fraternity parties were this gracious.
