    Have you ever wanted to learn all about the events in PFG before you see them? Here's your chance! PFG has partnered with Broad Street Review to bring our readers the cutting edge of what's new, what's happening, and what's to come here in the Philadelphia area. Founded in 2005, Broad Street Review is an online arts and culture publication, with previews, features, reviews, essays, and podcasts dedicated to exchanging and challenging viewpoints among its readers and contributors.

    Suicide Stories: Gallery of the Untold

     

    "The different installations add up to an “ongoing” show that lasts two hours at a time, but attendees are welcomed to come and go as they please, engaging as quickly or deeply as they choose...patrons will learn that the subjects of these stories 'are not so different from them,' which is important in an age when 'we are so numb to hearing suicide statistics, dates, ages, etc. We want to show the audience the people, the lives, the stories behind the numbers...'"

Aron Kader, the comedian who made waves with the Axis of Evil comedy tour in 2007, is coming in from Los Angeles. Chicago bands City of Djinn and Al-Thawra will be playing, along with Vancouver’s Puzzlehead and Baltimore’s Bidet, among others.
