Pat Finnerty

Breakup the Monotony of the Norm w/Pat Finnerty and the Full Band at Ortlieb's Dec. 3

A few months back, Pat Finnerty’s musical, The Lid, had a three-night run at Underground Arts. Finnerty and the Full Band seem to have an affinity for creating memorable tunes that canvas a wide range of musical stylings, serving as humor-rich commentary. Inflected with a British accent to breakup the monotony of the norm (and also as a nod to the influence of the British Invasion), Finnerty’s knack for tapping into sonic zones serves as a familiar jumping off point, which when injected with his personality is refreshing. Will Gross-led musical vehicle A Locomotive kicks things off with crisp breezy folk narratives. The earthy, roaming folk-rock of The Josey Dears retains road-weary warmth with the chill of a night that looms as the sun sets. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. Third St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita


Lil Sean Day at PhilaMOCA Aug. 30

When PhilaMOCA’s Eric Bresler first noticed Sean “Lil Sean” Coleman dancing outside during a Mad Decent Block Party a few years ago, it ignited into a friendship that saw Bresler take the mixed media venue’s neighbor under his wing, showing him the ropes. Over the years this mentorship has made Lil Sean an enigmatic presence during many of PhilaMOCA’s events, and the 1st ever Lil Sean Day will be a celebration of his many contributions. Lil Sean will be present for the screening of a short film that he had written, directed, and starred in - UNDERCOVER COPS, which is an homage to his policeman father. Scranton-based comedian/singer Pat Finnerty will also be on hand to perform one of Sean’s favorite songs "Reggae Dog," and PhilaMOCA will unveil their new Lil Sean Mural. Afterwards the event’s namesake will host a music showcase that will include Langor, Mumblr, Pushin’ It 2 The Limit, and Velvet Crayon. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St, 5pm, $5 - $10 donation, All Ages, - Bill McThrill
