Plus, they’ve got you tackled for all of your NFL needs this season, which you can hike it up to right here. 

20th Annual FringeArts Festival/Tonight-Sept 24th Hard to believe, but it’s been twenty years since the FringArts Festival started taking over Philly (seriously…it’ll be everywhere) with its high flying spectacles, artful shows and racy romps, and this year is looking to be truly something special as it will not just be a celebration of that not so elusive artistic Philly life, but with shows on the horizon including Gunnar Monatana’s Wroughtland, Bastion Carboni’s An Obviously Foggot and Franky Bradley’s all male dance troupe, Bradley’s Bucks, taking you into their mighty fine jungle, it just might be the most explosive festival yet.

DTF/Daryl & Timaree Fun Hour/Franky Bradley’s/Tonight Philly’s funniest twosome are back, and this time they’re helping you get your intercourse education on with another f#$king hilarious serving of their sex ed/comedy/game show just in time for the new school year. Join real life sex educator Dr Timaree Leigh and comedian Darryl Charles as well as featured panelists Neil Bardhan and Sven Inches as they get you all sorts of up and ready for all of the sex stuff that you are dying to know…right now. 

Sex Dwarf Celebrates 35 Years of New Order If there’s any entertainer in Philly who’s absolutely pumped to celebrate thirty-five years since New Order first served us with their debut single, “Ceremony,” it’s certainly DJ Robert Drake who will be taking over Club Moussai for a celebration that you’ll never forget. 

Adele/Wells Fargo Center/Tonight & Tomorrow All that we can really say is…pass the Kleenex…right now because we can’t deal with whatever the “Hello” diva is about to do to us all god damn weekend long. 

Culture Club/Electric Factory As if one English Breakfast tea sipping diva for your weekend wasn’t enough, the legendary Boy George and his fierce Culture Club are about to have you singing “Karma Chameleon” in record time. 

The Lumineers/Mann Music Center/Friday “Hey, Ho.” Enough said. That and this show is currently…sold out. 

Thomas Gold/Coda/Tonight What it all come down to is…just dance like your life depends on it. Certainly Mr. Gold will help you achieve that goal and then some. 

Back from the Beach Block Party Join Michael Duffy and the rest of the Valanni crew as they are straight up shutting down the block to keep you in denial that summer is over. Well, with this heat it’s certainly not, and with DJ jimmy DePre on the decks as well as lots of other fun things planned including a raging cookout and a dunk tank, this is one party that you and your whipped cream bikini do not want to miss out on. 

Hooked/Franky Bradley’s/Saturday Because a little disco fever for your weekend equals mirror ball bliss, especially when connoisseurs Michael the Lion and Shawn Ryan are at the oh, so shiny helm. 

What Makes Me Pissi/L’Etage/Saturday She’s back and she’s more Pissi than ever, especially in this heat and the fact that it’s her….sigh…final show at L’Etage. But lucky for us, everyone’se favorite NYC owning drag goddess Ms. Myles has DJ Chris Urban, Astala Vista, Phaedra Phaded and the UK’s one-and-very-only Meth by her ridiculously padded sides to help keep her cool…well, for a few minutes, anyway. 

Back 2 Basics Throwback Party/Saturday What could be better than a throwback party to take over your Saturday night? Nothing..unless it’s hosted by Ms. Amber Hikes and her B2B crew…which it most certainly is. So, go. 

Amos Lee/Academy of Music/Sunday Because life rides just a little bit smoother when the light, twangy grooves of Mr. Lee are involved.

DJ Chris Urban at Positano Coast/Every Monday Do you live that service industry life? If so, you must dance, not walk over to PC every Monday and let the grooves provided by one of Philly’s most smokin’ DJs help you forget all about that jackass customer that attempted to ruin your night. 

All the Drag Tea with Brittany Lynn Since there’s so much local drag business all up and around Philly, Drag Mafia diva Brittany Lynn has taken over the typewriter to serve you with all of the drag happenings, including the upcoming tea on Ariel Versace’s Fish Tank, Bev’s Bitchfest and many, many, more fierce events that are guaranteed to snatch a wig or twelve. 

“Not Your Basic” Brunch/Sept 18th/Pennsylvania 6 Philly The rumors are true…”Not Your Basic” Brunch is returning to take over your Sunday Funday lives once again. But as usual, those tables will be snatched up quick, and with the kick off theme being “Welcome to the Jungle,” you better hurry up and get your J.Lo “Waiting for Tonight” on right now, otherwise you’ll be waiting until next month to take a seat. 

Beyonce/Lincoln Financial Field/Sept 29th Are you going to be ready for all of that jelly (and water!) that Blue Ivy’s momma is about to unleash on the Linc once again? Of course, queen. Now, get those tickets.
