    Have you ever wanted to learn all about the events in PFG before you see them? Here's your chance! PFG has partnered with Broad Street Review to bring our readers the cutting edge of what's new, what's happening, and what's to come here in the Philadelphia area.

Aron Kader, the comedian who made waves with the Axis of Evil comedy tour in 2007, is coming in from Los Angeles. Chicago bands City of Djinn and Al-Thawra will be playing, along with Vancouver’s Puzzlehead and Baltimore’s Bidet, among others.
