2017 Fringe Arts Festival What happens when you take 1000 red-hot local performance and entertainment artists, divide them over 180 stunning shows with a complete take over of twenty neighborhoods across Philly? You get this year’s already lit 2017 Fringe Arts Festival, which has truly been on-point in serving up an explosive display of some of the finest talent Philly has to offer, including performers ranging from dance, song, theatre, aerial stunts and much, much, much more. While we could easily sit and spill about everything this year’s festival has to offer, it’s always best for you to see it all for yourself, but first dive straight into the official festival website to check it all out. But you better hurry as this year’s festival will be closing on Wednesday, Sept 27th. So, get to Fringin’…because we must support the arts, kids. 

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum You must not walk, but run to the box office at the Walnut Street Theatre to grab those tickets to take in Stephen Sondheim’s classic Tony Award-winning Best Musical, which has been described as “a nonstop laugh-fest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a bevy of beautiful showgirls. This unforgettable, hysterical musical comedy will have you laughing all the way to the Forum with “something for everyone, a comedy tonight!” All meaning….go. Walnut St. Theatre/tonight-October 22nd/various prices and showtimes

KINK HAÜS You’ve seen the stunning visuals…you’ve read the reviews (Phindle says it’s “a locomotive evening of entertainment you’ll never forget”), but most of all you’ve heard about all of the kink-alicious werk that Philly’s own entertainment mastermind, Mr. Gunnar Montana, and his fine company of local dancers and performance artists are thrusting forth in one of the hottest shows in this year’s Fringe Arts Festival. However, this is your absolute final weekend to catch this one-of-a-kind local entertainment spectacle, so if you want those tickets (seriously, there may only be, like, two left) go right here, right now. Through this Sunday/The Latvian Society of Philadelphia/531 N. 7th St.

All meaning…hold off on buying your twentieth pair of yoga pants and ease up on the pumpkin spice because the time has come to save those coins for those fall concert tickets, which you can get all the tea on in Philly Mixtape‘s official 2017 Philly fall concert guide right here. Ready, set, spend….it all

Bev’s Bitchfest:Winner’s Circle It’s an all new season, which means Philly’s reigning comedy kween, Ms. Bev, will have lots and lots of things to bitch about tonight. However, this time she’s coming aimed (most likely..for you and 45), armed and fabulous with the stunning winners of past cycles of Philly’s Drag Wars competitions including Brooklyn Ford (Season 2), Zsa Zsa St James (Season 3), Vinchelle (Season 6), Ariel Versace (All Stars 2), Anita Manhattan (Season 7) and Zephyra River (season 8). So, just f@cking go, okay? And Bev and the girls will see you there. Tonight/9 pm/Tabu/200 South 12th St. 

Brandy  “I Wanna Be Down”……”Sitting’ Up in My Room”……Moesha…..”The Boy is Mine”…….”What About Us”…..”Full Moon.” Just a few reasons why everyone should go see Ms. Brandy own the TLA this weekend. Grab those tickets.  Saturday/9 pm/TLA Philly/334 South St. 

2017 Puerto Rican Festival Parade With the recent catastrophic destruction of Hurricane Maria still fresh in our minds, this year’s festival is sure to be a somber, yet love-filled affair. (go right here to check out how you can help). But as always, that music will be hot and the entertainment will be even hotter (as will the weather…stay cool!), so take the whole family down to the Parkway tomorrow afternoon for a fun-filled day that won’t just be providing us with some top-notch entertainment (head here for more details) but guaranteed to bring us all closer together..which is perhaps the best part of it all. Tomorrow/12pm-430 pm/Benjamin Franklin Parkway 

Drag Your A** to Brunch  Where every Philly kween who’s not watching the Eagles home opener against the New York Giants will be tomorrow. However….chances are tickets are already this close to selling out, so you betta shake those Brittany Lynn pom poms and grab them…now. Sunday/Bourbon & Branch/Doors 1130 am/Show 12pm/705 N.2nd St.
