EARLY WORD: Calling All Hollaback Girls (& Boys)


Get Lucid! is a Philadelphia-based organization shining the light of awareness on an array of environmental and communal causes in the City Of Brotherly Love. In their fight to direct greater awareness and fundraising dollars towards socially-conscious organizations, Get Lucid! has been hosting semi-regular dance parties at the Underground Arts, featuring local DJ’s, bands, and artists. On Saturday, Get Lucid! will be joined by co-hosts Psy.Fi at Underground Arts to support the efforts of HollabackPhilly — a group attempting to empower women and members of the LGBTQ community against objectification, violence and street harrassment. There will be live music from Galvanize, Red Richards, RedHat feat. Visitor 10, Elegant Animals, Agent Zero, and  Drew Tanvez Explosion. Saturday’s show will also serve as the Galvanize record release party.  There will also be photography and paintings by local artists like Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, Harlequinade Art, VOID, SIGE, and Laura Mecklenburger for sale. Spoken word and comedy will also be part of the rave-like dance party.  And did I mention there will be alcohol?  Don’t feel guilty — it’s all for a good cause. Doors open at 8pm on April 5 at the Underground Arts. $5 presale. $8 at the door. Click HERE for more info. — BRIEN EDWARDS
