September 10, 7:30-11 PM
The Dark Horse
421 S. 2nd Street, Philadelphia

This September, back by popular demand, DJ (and loyal NAC subscriber) Doug Sell will be hosting the second “Songs of Cities” music event and Next American City will be on hand to unveil Issue 24! Dubbed the Mayors’ Issue, the magazine will feature a cover story on Mayor Bloomberg’s third term in office, a piece on Phoenix’s new public art project, a roundtable with six mayors talking about hopes for their respective cities and their fight during the recession and finally, a glimpse into NAC‘s first Next American Vanguard conference. Join us at The Dark Horse, 421 S. 2nd Street, for a night of great music and even better company!

If you missed last year’s “Songs of Cities” event, take a minute to go over the playlist and come prepared with new requests! DJ Doug promises to play a mix of indie rock/classic rock/R&B/pop/country, you name it! Any song about cities/towns is fair game.

RAFFLE! As a special treat from our friends at Innovation Philadelphia, one lucky attendee will receive a No Frills* package to attend the Global Creative Economy Convergence Summit in Philadelphia this Oct. 5-6.

*The No Frills registration (reg. $75) includes access to all Summit-related panels, workshops, and presentations, but does NOT include some of the fancy “extras” such as meals and drinks. GCECS will explore and examine all aspects of what creative ecologies need from physical space, to funding, to access to talent, to emerging technologies, to infrastructure and the policies necessary to create that ecology.
