Friday August 3, 2012, from 6pm to 8pm in Pretzel Park

(Fourth Concert in the First Friday Series)

The Sideshow Prophets are a 7 piece Punk Rock Rhythm-n-Blues Band from the heart of Philadelphia. This veteran septet pulls influences from all over the musical map, twisting the rhythm-n-blues of the 40's, the rebel rock-n-roll of the 50's, the sweet soul sound of the 60's and the punk attitude of the 70's into an intoxicating wall-o-sound.

Bring your date, bring your dinner, bring your dog, but whatever you do, bring something to hang on to!

MANAYUNK NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL, In cooperation with THE SPIRAL BOOKCASE (PURVEYORS OF THE PRINTED PAGE) PRESENTS

Saturday, November 27th at 4 PM AT MUGSHOTS CAFE, 110 COTTON ST. JUST OFF MAIN ST, NEXT TO SPIRAL BOOKCASE:

Timothy Sheard, author of the Lenny Moss mystery series--most recently, Slim to None--talks about his work, creating the mystery story and writing crime fiction with a social realist edge.

About Tim Sheard's protagonist Lenny Moss: "Who is that guy with the mop and the attitude - the real Lenny Moss? Many have inquired. Few have learned his secret. Like Clark Kent, or maybe more like Jimmy Olsen, the man behind the legend is modest. Self-effacing. As humble as a Benedictine monk, and as heavy a drinker. He's a custodian who works in a big teaching hospital in Philadelphia. And he's a trouble-maker with a dash of lunacy and several shots of the absurd. But his feet are firmly on the ground..."
