Nerd Nite Philly Turns Five at Johnny Brenda's

  • Johnny Brenda's 1201 Frankford Ave Philadelphia, PA, 19125 United States (map)

I'm excited to help celebrate Philly Nerd Nite turning 5 with a 10-minute poetry set. 

Expect from me the usual mix of tragicomedy and boombast.

Hey Philly,
Have you heard that Nerd Nite Philly celebrates our 5 Year anniversary soon? We’ve changed neighborhoods, bars, days of the week, times and even co-bosses (don’t worry, no one got fired)! Now settled comfortably into Fishtown, typically on the 1st Wednesday of each month, we look forward to many more years of nerdy speakers and entertainment washed down with steins of beer. Our 5 year party will include abbreviated renditions from some of the best nerdy talks and talent our city has offered over the last few years.
Among the topics will be Victorian-era burial practices, forensic anthropology, and there will definitely be a nod to wacky pop culture memorabilia thrown in there. We’ll be changing up the format with shorter iterations of some of the best nerdy presentations we’ve enjoyed throughout the years, we promise that we’re still striving for the same inebriated, salacious, yet deeply academic vibe as we party like it is, indeed, our birthday.
