- What is Philly. Music. Culture. all about?
This is a blog for and about the city of brotherly love- Philadelphia. It covers Philly musicians, culture, music venues, and anything else relevant and helpful.
- Why Philly?
Philadelphia has a well-saturated music and arts culture. We have dozens of great music venues, a plethora of local bands, and plenty of creative thinkers to write about.
- Why music?
Music has an uncanny ability to touch the souls of listeners. A good lyric, instrument, and vocal combination often moves people in very real ways. Some examples of songs that touch me are “Personal” by Stars and “Broadripple is Burning” by Margot & The Nuclear So and So’s. Both songs put me in a sober place, reminding me to feel again; and that’s the power of music.
- Why Culture?
It’s important to examine the culture that certain things, like music, creates. The arts often has an important culture attached to it. I believe that Philadelphia’s music culture is a very important one to examine.
- Philadelphia has no shortage of music blogs. So why start a new one?
