For the Artists

The Electric Factory

The Electric Factory


Art includes music too people! My favorite venue to go to in Philly is definitely the Electric Factory. This factory has been one of Philadelphia’s most famous venue’s for more than 40 years. I love going here, during the winter this is the spot where all of my favorite artists perform.

The best part about this place is the prices of the tickets! I have, several times over, had the pleasure of successfully buying a cheap ticket moments before a concert begins.  In fact, I did just that the other night. On Saturday, my friends and I heard there was going to be a concert there later that night. The tickets were $20 and the concert was well worth the price.

Here’s a video of the concert I went to. (Just to let everyone know before hand, the band playing is Big Gigantic, for those of you who do not know this band, it is a blend of dubstep with a saxophone. GIVE THEM A CHANCE they’re really good, I promise.)

Philadelphia Art Museum

 On Any Given Sunday

The Philadelphia Art Museum is one of my favorite places in the City. I love eating lunch on the stairs and wandering the hallways littered with works of art.

The Philadelphia Art Museum is one of the best places to go if you:
1. Like art or art history
2. Are entertaining on a budget
3. Have small kids
4. Need something to talk about with your newly hipster cousin

On the first Sunday of every month, the art museum hosts Pay-What-You-Wish Sundays, all entrance fee’s are considered donations to the museum’s restoration. It’s great if you and your family or friends are looking for something inexpensive to do that will eat up a lot of time.

I just love the this museum. It is really fun to bring the kids and some paper and colored pencils and have them try to draw the paintings.
