Since February of last year, DIYPHL has listed hundreds and hundreds of events in Philadelphia, passed out thousands of fliers, and printed nearly a dozen unique monthly calendars designed by different artists. Needless to say, we’ve been busy.
But that’s only because this is a busy city. Thousands of bands, musicians, and artists performed in a wide array of non-conventional spaces this past year. There may well have never been a day without a DIY show. Philly is a pretty special place.
That’s why to commemorate the past year in shows (and our one year anniversary), we’re publishing PHL 2012: A Year in DIY, a 60 page, perfect-bound color book of photos from the past year, featuring submissions from photographers in Philly and beyond.
The book will be released at the Ladyfest Galentine’s Day benefit show at Cha Cha’Razzi on Saturday, February 16th at 7pm.
