|Oh, '80s hair ...
â¤ Reunion culcha
: As reported in this week's Agenda section
, our old friends from the Black Banana/Voyeur
axis (some of which we spied at the Valanni/Social
opening last night for a moment) are doing a reunion of Le Club Banana
one of this city's first Euro-centric after hours spots this weekend at Voyeur
. One of the biggest connecting factors is that Mistress Natasha
(BB bartender, now at Voyeur) and old pal Nicky London
will host when the party goes down on Jan. 16
, and there will be video messages from Kristen DeLeo Chalmers a.k.a. Kris D
, rapping delight ("I'm Not from New York" was her joint) and appearances from Banana Djs: Eric Marsh
, Lee Jones
, Josh Wink
and Robert Drake
. If you ever enjoyed getting caught doing naughty things in their bathroom with the two way mirror, this night's for you. Check out our above photo of Natasha as a baby lovely. Yum.
â¤ Our good friend and Philly expatriate (for Buffalo) performance artist/photographer Liz Rywelski
was so enraged when she saw my Icepack mention of Sarah Palin
and Bob Brady
and Gabrielle Giffords
, that she barfed on one of Palin's books (who cares which) and started THIS
viral vid campaign (weak tummies beware!).
Just weeks before Fugees' Lauryn Hill
restarts her sanity, I mean her career, at A.C.'s House of Blues
, (Jan. 29) another of the Fu-gee-la-las, Pras Michel
, was seen at Studio 609
with producers Dre
. Better than another Wyclef sighting, huh?
â¤ The Kammerers, Holly
(with whom I did stuff on The 10! Show) made their last appearance in Philly over the weekend at Roosevelt Pub
he's in D.C. on NBC 4. See you, pal.
â¤ The crew at U of P's Veterinary Hospital
(that's where my dawg Django
goes) was treated to a visit from Sirius/XM + Howard Stern show newswoman Robin Quivers
and her Cornish Rex cat Brangelina who had kidney work. She discussed as much on the air and this is not to be confused with Camille Grammer's
appearance on the Stern show.
â¤ The Cira Center
gave the ADL Home Grown Hero Award
to the Phillies GM Ruben Amarro Jr
.. For his reward, he got a lick form the Phillies Phanatic.
â¤What the hell were a thousand guys with busmen's caps doing at the PMA? I kid. The Philadelphia Museum of Art
hosted over 1,700 international tourism operators from the American Bus Association's
annual conference, watching trapeze artists hanging from the Great Stair Hall ceiling and jazz musicians in berets from the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts
â¤ We don't know if he did anything as spectacular as Christian Bale
or Mark Wahlberg
this season, but M. Night Shyamalan
walked the carpet at the National Board Of Review Of Motion Pictures Awards Gala
Tuesday night at Cipriani's in NYC.
â¤ Vicki Spaeth
and Jeremy Dyan
got it going on at Tin Angel
Sunday Jan. 16. But only Spaeth's Cadets
have Schooly D
â¤ The Wall Street Journal
named the Arden's
production of Sunday in the Park with George
one of the "Best Musicals of 2010." Yay they. This reminds me that the Theatre Alliance of Greater Philadelphia
, Dance/USA Philadelphia
, Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance
and the Philadelphia Music Project
just launched PhillySpaceFinder.com
as an online resource for performers and producers to find venues for whatever they need. Use this.
