Tonight begins the August edition of PhilaMOCA‘s music-and-film series, Tuesday Tune-Out, with Fred Knittel curating the program for the next four weeks.

Fred is near and dear to our hearts in the XPN universe – he hosts the Sunday afternoon folk music showcase Folkadelphia on XPN2, runs its corresponding studio sessions and curates a concert series around the city. Over the past year, Folkadelphia Presents has featured emerging artists Saintseneca, 200 Years, Spirit and Dust and more. He’s also a massive film buff, and we asked him to put together a guest VJ post previewing the musicians and some of the films he’ll showcase for the next four weeks. All events are at PhilaMOCA (531 N. 12th Street), start at 7:30pm and are $5.

From Fred:
I have always enjoyed attending concerts that incorporate different kinds of media or crowd involvement, so I strive to make the concerts I put on through Folkadelphia more than just music. Live music interspersed with interviews was the format for the Folkadelphia Concert Series and live radio sessions on xpn2 often are a part of recent concerts, so the chance to combine elements of local folksy music with a film screening was really appealing to me. Thanks to Eric Bressler (of PhilaMOCA and Cinedelphia) for the opportunity!
