Be Seinfeld, See Seinfeld

"The first 75 people that sign up at 5:15 p.m. will take the stage and perform one minute of their favorite Seinfeld bit. Contestants will be judged on dress, delivery and comedic timing."

This might be interesting to go to just to see who shows up.

Learn from Rafi Spero, co-founder of local Philly star tech company $35M Neat Receipts

"His presentation will explore the issues management faced choosing between customer segments and the branding and marketing issues that come with this choice. He will also share corporate culture tips for young companies and explore the factors, such as the startup climate in Philadelphia, that helped his company take the top spot of the Philly 100."

Friday, June 19, 2009, 8PM
Painted Bride Art Center
230 Vine St., Philly, PA 19106

"The audience also thrilled to the pageantry and wushu acrobatics in Dance Ensemble Singapore’s Beauty of Tradition..."

$10 for a contemporary dance performance is a steal.

West Oak Lane Jazz & Arts Festival
Fri - Sun, June 19-21, 2009
7100 - 7400 Block West Ogontz Ave.

It takes a long SEPTA journey to get there but if you appreciate the possibility of good jazz and scattered thunderstorms, it might be worth it.
Saturday, June 20, 2009, 11AM - 8PM
600 - 1100 Block of 2nd St.

This ain't the Mummer's Two Street party. In fact, I think they call it 2nd Street to differentiate it as hip NoLibs. Live music, alive crowds.

Battle Hymns Chorus Performance
Saturday, June 20, 2009, 4 or 6pm
The Armory, 22 S. 23rd St. Philly, PA 19123

"Utilizing the large, empty space of the 23rd Street Armory, which once stored arms and ammunition, Leah Stein’s site specific choreography of movement and Pulitzer Prize winning composer David Lang’s music performed by the Mendelssohn Club chorus will investigate the great potential of many bodies in the large space and military atmosphere of the Armory. This third collaboration between Leah Stein and Alan Harler involves more than 90 performers in a powerful intersection of voice, movement and history."

Blah blah blah *90* performers. What?! The Mendelssohn Club chorus rocks, too.

Saturday, June 20, 2009, 3PM
Kimmel Center, 260 S. Broad St. Philly, PA 19102
$10 adults, $5 children

Ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight? Or do an all-night jump rope-a-thon? I imagine if you truly participate in the all-day/night/morning celebration with your friends that it will devolve into a mix of midnight delirium.
