COVER STORY: Chiddy Bang may be dropping their first album now but they’ve been cranking out hits and playing massive shows for years now.

JUMP Presents: Gogo Morrow (below) backed up Lady Gaga. Now, she’s doing her thing and making waves.

This Place Rocks: The Boom Room is a more than a studio. It’s a comprehensive music service spot. Strange Brew served coffee and music to a South Philly neighborhood. Until it went out of business.

Music & Education: American DanceWheels teaches people in wheelchairs and standing partners how to do the rumba.

Food That Rocks: Sazon is the perfect place to get mind-blowing desserts before seeing a show at Union Transfer. Plus, there are numerous other eating options near the club.

Liner Notes: Jaguar Wright is molding young Philly performer Alexis Simmons.

Publisher’s Note: With the implosion of the music industry, you don’t need to be in New York or LA to hit the big time. You can do it from right here in Philly.
