Catch the Top Music Acts in Philly at The Electric Factory

The Electric Factory is one of America’s most well regarded indoor music venues and a center for Philadelphia’s own music scene. Opened in 1968, the venue moved from its original converted tire warehouse to a more appropriate converted electric factory in the mid-90s, where it remains a beacon for lovers of widespread musical genres. With a standing capacity of nearly 3,000 people (including a second-floor area overlooking the stage), this is one venue where you’ll want to be on your feet—whether that means dancing, head-banging, or scuffing along to the beat. The space is available for private functions and corporate events, but mostly it’s just a great place to go catch a live performance by local, national, or global acts.

January Events in Philadelphia

Looking for something to do? This January, Philadelphia hosts some exciting events! Check out these four:

Mummer's Parade, January 1, 2012

A Philadelphia tradition, old men in elaborate costumes sit in small go-karts and whiz around the streets along with bands and other festivities. It's supposed to be linked to Celtic customs, but mostly it's a raucous good time.

In the new year, make your new favorite hang out the Story Slams at World Cafe Live and L'Etage. Twice every month real people pour their hearts out about a selected theme. You can also compete with your own five minute tale of humorous woe.

Jerry Seinfeld at the Academy of Music, January 14, 2012

The original funny man comes to the Academy to talk about nothing. Really. But he'll probably include a few topical quips about the city and his act's guaranteed to be a good time!
