Do this, or you will surely have regrets for the rest of your life…and that could lead to an ulcer which would clearly not be good for you.

Ever since the warped and brightly colored placards of the psychedelic era, concert posters have been yet another place for art and music to collide. “Sonic Textures,” PhilaMOCA’s exploration of the (literal) pageantry of concert promotion, runs throughout the month of April, but this gallery night adds a special layer of musical appreciation to the mix: a screening of selections from Billy Martin’s (Medeski, Martin & Wood) performance documentary, Life on Drums. For musicians and newcomers alike, Martin’s film features a visit from his very first percussion teacher, explorations of the possibilities contained within each kit, and showcases of Martin’s compositions and improvisations. The fusion of art and music in both presentations brings continuity to this night of cultural re-examination. The oft-overlooked artistry of concert posters and the usual background positioning of the drummer suggests that both subjects were overdue for some spotlight. Live performances from Ghost/Light and Girls Rock Philly will complete the multisensory experience.

Morning MUSUKO is an exciting collaboration between some of the most talented Japanese and non-Japanese musicians around, and the worlds only J-Pop Big Band. We were happy to have hosted this fantastic show at the Mausoleum. Check out the footage we got!
I love this band. Just watch this video, recorded live at the Mausoleum earlier this month….and you’ll understand.
