Oh sad day…but there’s always Jamaican patties to make it better!

That’s it. Just sat thru a Yahoo Matchcast of the World Cup while pretending to do work and USA’s hopes for advancing have been pounced upon and shredded into a bloody mess by Ghana. It’s time for Landon & crew to head back across the pond.

I shall try to console at myself tonight’s outdoor pre-screening of “Scene not Heard,” which documents the local female hip hop artist scene, at the Jamaican Jerk Hut @ 1436 Broad. Details from email invite below…

To all you movie going, film watching fanatics, this is an event you won’t want to miss!Now that the summer is officially in full swing there is no reason to stay inside and watch the boob tube all night. Come by the Jamaican Jerk Hut, bring a few friends, some drinks(BYOB), a date. The yard is lovely this time of year but even if it rains we’re still prepared to screen this film on the verandah. Plus the director will be on hand for a little Q&A Pre-Screening Cocktail Party! No admission fee but there is a ten dollar food/drink minimum. You’ll love our patties and very own fresh made fruit juices! Film details below.

SCENE NOT HEARD (2005) 45 min
By Maori Karmael Holmes

Pre Screening Cocktail Party and
Q & A with Director

Philadelphia is often referred to as the mecca for American soul music, but local artists have also made major contributions to the hip- hop movement as emcees, graf artists, dancers, and especially as deejays. Native talents such as Will Smith, The Roots and Eve have made great strides domestically and internationally, but somehow Philly still doesnt get the kind of props of a city like Los Angeles or even Atlanta. However, one of the most unique aspects to the Philadelphia hip hop scene is the proliferation of women that it has produced as emcees, vocalists, poets and deejays. Scene Not Heard seeks to tell the story of these women the legends, the famed, and the ingénuesas they struggle to succeed in a male-dominated industry.
