Guide to what’s happening in Philly this week

The citywide film and music festival is back for four days packed with performances by more than 100 artists.

Check back with us tomorrow for more coverage; but for now, our list looks like this: Deadmau5 (Friday at Penn’s Landing), The Cocktail Slippers (Friday at Kung Fu Necktie), Birdie Busch (Sunday at the Ukie Club.), Murder by Death (Sunday at World Cafe Live) and the Dead Milkmen (Saturday at Penn’s Landing).
