Event Spotlight:Stevie Visions

Stand Back“……”Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around“…….”Rhiannon“…..”Seven Wonders“…..”Gold Dust Woman“….”Landslide“….”Edge of Seventeen“….”Crystal“….”Leather and Lace.” 

If any of the songs listed above by Destiny’s Child’s “Bootylicious” bae and Misty Day’s AHS: Coven Queen–both otherwise known as legendary Fleetwood Mac co-diva Stevie Nicks made you grab your chiffon and lace shawls and get to twirlin’ just now, than Philly is hosting just the event for you, scratch that, for everybody this weekend. 

Tomorrow night at the Play and Players Theater inside Skinner Studios (7pm, 1714 Delancey Street) you’ll be entertained by Stevie Visions, which is set to be a nitroglycerine worthy night exploding with fierce and fabulous Drag, Burlesque and Cabaret performances which will honor everyone’s favorite long-lasting “Dreams” diva, all while making waves in raising funds for Philly’s Planned Parenthood organization. 

While there is a $10 suggested donation at the door, because you’re you and you live for Stevie, any donation will certainly be accepted as you head into this incredible one-of-a-kind Philly entertainment event. 

But besides all of that dear, sweet heavenly music and love taking front-and-center of our Mizz Nicks universes tomorrow night, you’ll also get to witness about-to-be stunning performances by Jess Conda, Christina Gesualdi, Pilar Salt , Robin Graves, Tiel, Pizza Wolf and Ms. Lily Rollerhoops. Of course, we must show our Philly love to your host of the evening, Mr. Paul Harlan, whom all of Philly and the tri-state area knows as the one-and-only, Paul Severe. 

While we indeed can’t predict just how dazzling and off the local entertainment charts Stevie Visions is going to be tomorrow night, what we do know is that with a cast like this and classic grooves like these coming at us in full woke effect, it’s certainly going to be a night to remember.

So, twirl on over to Skinner Studios tomorrow night at 7 pm and get your Steve Visions on…because, really, why the f#$k wouldn’t you? It’s Stevie Nicks we’re talking about here.

Enough said. See you there!

Music Tea w/Youngr

Whether he’s owning the crowd with his brilliant live music production prowess, pounding our hearts with any one of his trademark drum solos or just making us realize how much we need more cowbell in our fucking lives, London based multi-talented singer/songwriter Youngr certainly has those music vibes that we’ve only ever dreamed of achieving and maintaining. 

Lucky for us, he’ll be taking everything he has to offer for our tuned in worlds and putting it front and center at Coda this Saturday night for a show that’s guaranteed to be nothing short of werk all damn night long 

But before he owns our Philly live music lives this weekend (get those tickets here..now), he stopped by Philly Mixtape for a spot of funkdafied and fresh music tea where he broke mugs about his breathtaking latest offering, “Out of My System,” his favorite records and what his main agenda is when he owns a piece of Coda this Saturday….to make us fucking live, of course. 

Get your spill on with Youngr below. 

First up, spill for everyone about how you got your start in music. I started when I  was 7 years old and my dad forced me to go to piano lessons… I used to cry before going in… And he’d always say “you’ll thank me when you’re older” (or Oldr) wayo! Then I got into the [Red Hot] Chilli Peppers and Incubus and got into drums and rocking out in bands when I was 14ish with my bro. Then I discovered Simply Red and got into chords and melody… Then I discovered the Beatles and got into songwriting. Then at college I got into Pharrell and Timbaland productions… And here I am now!!!

Let’s get into a little overseas music groove, namely the sometimes underrated stateside genre of house music. Are you a fan? If so, any favorite artists of the genre you think we should look out for stateside? I LOVE house music. Tasteful delicious shuffling house music. I actually love Chicago house too. There’s an amazing act called Son Of Kong doing some great shit in London. Check them out.

What was the inspiration behind your incredible single, “Out Of My System?”
My ex moved away and I decided to go a little crazy, take all the drugs, have all the sex, and have all the fun… Basically. Ha! 

Any big plans while you’re going to be touring Philly and the U.S.? My main goal is to discover where the Fresh Prince of Bel Air grew up. Ha! No,no real plans… Just to have loads of fun and make lots of Americans smile and dance!!!

Shout out for me a few albums that you can’t live without…Simply Red Stars.Simply Red Picture Book….Incubus If Not Now, When……Red Hot Chilli Peppers By the Way….Kid Creole and The Coconuts Off the Coast of Me.

What words of advice would you give to anybody who just started out in this crazy music business right this very second? Give up! Choose a different career quick! Before it’s too late! Ha. No… My main piece of advice is literally never give up. That’s it. If you love it… Keep doing it.

One last sip…what can your fans expect from your show at Coda this Saturday night? Dancing, smiling, naked bodies, sweaty bodies, feedback, cowbells, chords, bass, drums, melodies, feathers, flowery shirts, guitar solos and a fact of the day.

Groove of the Day/Alex Aiono/”Work the Middle”

What do lots of screaming girls, tons of on point vocals, heaps of baby makin’ beats and a packed house at the Electric Factory all have in common? 

They’re all of the elements that made up the William Singe (that Australian accent, though…sigh) and Alex Aiono takeover last night at the long-lasting Philly venue. Excited groupies aside (these gentlemen have earned those screams), those grooves were certainly in full throttle, especially Mr. Aiono’s latest bedroom/club ready offering, “Work the Middle,” which you should get down to right now if you want to start workin’ those weekend vibes for your Thursday. 

And for much more on both Mr. Singe and Mr. Aiono (and his immaculate cover of Drake’s “One Dance”) groove it all out right here and here…..and then keep on dancin’ right here for lots of Philly concert truth all spring long. 

Much like today’s Philly Mixtape groove of the day and last night’s show, it’s going to be a live one this season, kids.
