What DJ nights do you goto in Philly???

We have found it somewhat difficult to stay on top of the ever-changing DJ night list for Philly at www.hearthescene.com. Where do you guys go? I know we are missing a lot, but what nights? what venues? what DJ’s??  I have yet to find a really good resource for DJ night listings ever since the City Paper stopped giving a fuck if the shows they list actually exist or not.  Check out what we’ve got listed by clicking the DJ Nights tab.

Gracias Amigos

You can email me at Patrick@HearTheScene.com if you so choose.

We've got a new website!

Hey Everyone, We just launched our website www.hearthescene.com for DJ Night and Live Music listings for Philadelphia! We will no longer be listing events on hearthescene.tumblr.com. It is possible we use this tumblr page for more traditional blogging related to the DJ scene in Philly. So please check out www.hearthescene.com! We are adding shows every day and have a chunk up there already. Please drop us a line if you have any comments, suggestions or you wish to have any events listed. Thanks, Patrick

Venue Pages Added to Hear The Scene

Hello Philly Music Peeps.

We recently added individual venue pages to www.hearthescene.com.  Now if you tend to be loyal to a certain venue, you can look at what we have listed for their upcoming shows along with whatever twitter, web and facebook links to the venue’s own pages. Let me know what you think.  Next up will be band and DJ pages so you can keep up with your favorite local artist. We know the listings aren’t very full right now, but we wanted to get a basic, core functionality working before we focused on keeping the listings well stocked.

Hope to run into some of you out in the wild,



Dinner and a Suit is playing Saturday at the North Star Bar! They are originally from Philly and back in town for one night only, so get there.

Here’s their bio, I found it here but I’m not sure where it originated from:

Dinner and a Suit is a young band whose explosive and energetic stage performance coupled with their solid lyrical and melodic hooks give them their signature sound and separate them from other bands within the alternative pop/rock genre. It’s a fresh and exciting sound with unique structure and brilliance that is unheard of at such a young age. Emerging from the Philly/South Jersey area(Now relocated to Nashville, TN), the band finds inspiration from artists such as Coldplay, Sleeping at Last, Mark Kozeleck, and Sigur Ros. Dinner and a Suit released their first album “Light and Lungs” in January 2008, and has since, hit the road, gathered local attention and fans, with no end in sight. 

Artist Pages and a New Look

We added another feature to www.hearthescene.com, artist pages. Now you can click on an artist and goto a dedicated page which shows their upcoming events and various contact options (website, facebook, twitter, etc.). We have been focusing more on adding functionality than filling out the event calendar, recently. But once we are focused, full-time on inputing events and other information this will be a great way to keep track and share artists you like. Next on tap we will create individual event pages so you can share them with your friends on facebook and twitter. We also changed the look of the website with a new background texture. It really lightened everything up and I really like it. Drop me a line and let me know what you think and if you have any other suggestions.


Hear The Scene - NEW WEBSITE!

Hello Everyone, 

We launched our new music listings website today! www.hearthescene.com We have a lot of events for August already posted and will be adding more everyday.  Contact us if you want your event added. We won’t be listing events on tumblr anymore, we will transition our tumblr page to more of a regular blog. We think it will be much better this way. Right now the site is pretty limited, just an initial release. Check www.hearthescene.com for all your Philly music event listings and stay tuned as we add more functionality and more events.
