This Fall: Don’t Miss Events

So summer has finally come and gone. Instead of leaning on the past, glaring back at warm days with envy, let’s embrace the upcoming cooler months and what they bring to the table: pumpkin spice lattes, steaming hot chocolate, apple cider, costumes, and nature’s ever-changing beauty. That’s right it’s fall, and Philly has so much in store! But let’s start with the end of this month and what’s happening in October.

Terror Behind The Walls Dates: Sept 20- Nov 9 Price: $13-$39 (There’s student discount Sundays after 7:30pm)

You know the moment when you shouldn’t turn around because something is breathing down your neck, or maybe you know you shouldn’t investigate that stirring noise coming from the basement? We hinge on the edge of fear in these subtle and grasping moments that put our hairs on end and challenge our hearts to beat in our ears. Deep inside the walls of the Eastern State Penitentiary prison, you will have the chance to brush against death, decay, and rot that may just scare you right out of your pants.

Campus Philly College Day Dates: Sept 28 Price: Free

Start at the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and get ready to explore the city! This festival is our opportunity to welcome you to college but mostly to welcome you to Philadelphia. It’s your chance to begin building a life of success. The city of Philadelphia is throwing itself open to you students: welcoming each and every one of you! Meet you friends on September 28th at College Day from 10am-4pm and don’t miss out on free admission to select museums along the Ben Franklin Parkway and within Historic Philadelphia area. We’ll also have a free bus loop with select stops around the city!

OutFest Dates: Oct 13 Price: Free

Get ready for one of the biggest block party. Not only will there be live entertainment, DJs in the street, dance parties, the best vendors, and games that will last into the night, but this is one the most celebrated and open environments one could hope for to express themselves. The main stage is located at 12th and Locust Street, and the party covers the surrounding blocks, so you can’t miss it.

Quidditch Tournament at CHC Dates: Oct 18- 19 Price: Mostly free, but tickets are required for some events

Chestnut Hill College is getting ready to welcome its 4th Annual Philadelphia Brotherly Love Quidditch Cup Tournament, a homage to the greatest wizard to rock glasses and a scar. Trust me, being a proud CHC student, it’s pretty cool to wake up and be able to greet Voldemort and Hermoine impersonators in the cafeteria. Now imagine: the entire neighborhood is filled with wizards, muggles of all ages, and dedicated athletes, all who are out to grab onto a little piece of magic in the real world. Dumbledore will begin the festivities on Friday at 6pm in Chestnut Hill on Germantown Ave’s Fountain Plaza. There will be parades, movie screenings, the game of games, and a whole lot more! Don’t miss it.

 

Quick; while it’s still brisk enough for a light stroll, squeeze more fun into your fall with these awesome events!

We recently spoke with Philly native, Jesse Ruben, as he is currently in the midst of his “We Can” Tour across the country with fellow musical artist Caitlin Crosby.  Originally hailing from the Upper Dublin area, Jesse recently performed at the WHYY Connections Festival on September 7th.  The weekend-long festival featured other musical talent at the Great Plaza along with food and family fun up and down Penn’s Landing.

After attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA as a song writing major, Jesse has since taken his music career by storm, playing shows not only in the City of Brotherly Love, but also across the nation.  He has high hopes to encourage change within young adults and children with his music.

Let’s check out what he said about his current tour, his experience at the WHYY Connections Festival, and the city where it all began for him!

Campus Philly: What are your thoughts on the music scene in Philly?  Highlights?

Jesse Ruben: To be honest, I don’t know it as well as I used to.  I grew up going to shows in the city.  I love being considered as part of the Philly scene; it’s a great place for nurturing talent.

CP: How did it feel performing at the WHYY Connections Festival September 7 at Penn’s Landing?

JR: I had a blast; it was really fun!  I don’t usually do large outdoor amphitheaters, but it was way more intimate.  There were a lot of kids running around.  It was nice to meet the other artists.  It was over all a really good experience!  I would like to do more of these kinds of shows.  I’ve been playing a lot in Philly, and people at WHYY were looking for artists to perform, and so I said yes.

CP: I’ve seen you perform at World Café Live (twice) and at the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing.  What are you favorite Philly venues?

JR: I love them all! For example, the Electric Factory and the TLA are some great venues, as well as Keswick Theatre.

CP: You have just embarked on your current “We Can” Tour, with fellow artist, Caitlin Crosby.  What are you most excited about?

JR: I just love being on the road and meeting people.  It’s one thing for someone to write you an email about how much they admire you and your music.  It’s a totally separate thing for people to leave home and watch you perform in person. It’s great to see their faces and just meet people who care.

CP: Could you explain your “We Can” initiative and what it means to you?

JR: It was sort of a surprise for me.  I just had a school in Canada reach out to me. They heard the song, “We Can,” and used it to inspire their students. I visited and played for the kids there, even shooting the music video for the song there.

People were seeing the music video, like educators and community leaders.  They wanted to know what this was and how they could get involved with it.  It’s still a developing program to be presented in elementary and middle schools. With thousands of dollars raised and community gardens being built at this school, it was just an awesome thing to be a part of.  I would like to see a generation of kids growing up knowing that they can make a difference.

CP: What advice would you give to young college students trying to break into the music industry?

JR: Don’t give up in the face of “No.”  If you have any desire to do anything else at all, do that.  This is a very hard, scary, and often times lonely road.  It is occasionally rewarding, but it takes a certain type of person to write songs for a living.  I wrote my first song when I picked up my acoustic guitar when I turned 16, and I haven’t stopped since!

CP: Where do you see your professional music career taking off in five years?

JR: No one gets into this for the money.  We do it because we want to make an impact.  I want to do this the day people find out they are getting married, the day their kid is born, or the day they find out they only have three weeks to live. I want to be the soundtrack for their life, their most intense moments.

 

Thanks to Jesse Ruben for taking the time to speak with us and congrats again on all his recent successes! In parting, Jesse had this to say to all his fans and aspiring musicians:  “Don’t listen to people when they tell you you’re crazy.  That’s when you know you are doing something right. “

Temple Grad Lands Position Thanks to Campus Philly

We recently caught up with David Silver, a recent Temple grad, who majored in Advertising and Account Management, with a Minor in Entrepreneurship. When we last spoke with David, he had just attended a Tech Start-up Crawl, hosted by Campus Philly. There he had won an iPad 2 by our sponsor, Bentley Systems.

Since then, David has started his own business, Broad Street Music Group and began a position at Bentley Systems. We recently sat down again with David to hear about his exciting new endeavors.

Originally from Warminster, PA, David stated, “Hard-work is what I preach. Smart work.” Let’s take a deeper dive to see how all his hard work has paid off this past year.

Campus Philly: What do you love most about the City of Brotherly Love?

David Silver: I love the passion that people have for whatever they are passionate about here. I don’t think it’s the same in other cities. The support for each other is there but doesn’t come off pleasant. People expect the best in this city and won’t settle for much less until they get there. But I do kind of enjoy the grittiness of the city.

CP: How did you land your new position at Bentley Systems?  Can you share how Campus Philly had a hand in this undertaking?

DS: Senior year I went on a technology crawl hosted by Campus Philly and sponsored by Bentley Systems.  Bentley raffled off an iPad 2 at the end of the event, and I won! I called Bentley to thank them, and I was asked if I already had a job lined up. I was told to send in my resume, and so I did. About two months later, I received an email by my current boss at Bentley saying there was an opening, but I only knew advertising and entertainment. I was told they were really interested in my marketing background, came in for an interview, and the rest was history!

To me, that’s what Campus Philly is all about. It is all about providing a networking opportunity for students to succeed in Philadelphia, and that’s what exactly happened to me.

CP: What professional experience do you hope to gain from your new position at Bentley Systems?

DS: It’s a real role in a real company. It is good to see what it takes to set up meeting, turn ideas into action items, and make things happen.  It’s exciting; it’s something new. It challenges my learning skills. That’s really what it comes down to: how the inter-working of a successful company turns ideas into action items, getting things done.

CP: Since you last spoke with Campus Philly, Broad Street Music Group was just taking off. What new events are you hosting?

DS: Since last time, much has changed. As of last April, we became an LLC. We have about 8-10 team members on board.  We launched our business at a company event back on August 17. We had a red carpet, buffet, 18 bands perform, the whole nine yards! There were about 350 people in attendance, and tickets sold out within 15 minutes.

Before we were just booking venues. Now we offer every resource a musician would need. Currently we have an entire media team, our own studio for audio, and more venues to book shows. We are a full-scale entertainment agency.  Before we targeted just Temple students.  Now we work across Philadelphia, seeking raw talent and professionalism and offering every service you need to launch your music career.

Currently, we are in the process of working with children and providing them with opportunities they need to establish themselves in their music careers.  We are looking to utilize grants and even a Kickstarter campaign to try to raise money.

CP: According to your mission statement on your website, it states your goal is to “Showcase Philly’s growing roster of talented artists and give those underground performers a shot to see the light of a stage and audience.”  How have you upheld this overarching goal?

DS: Without a doubt I think we have hit our mission statement. We have held over 100 shows, with 15 shows a month and more than 500 musicians booked, all young and undiscovered. We provide opportunities for undiscovered talent.  It has been definitely a big goal, but why not shoot for the biggest goal possible?

CP: What advice can you give to fellow students/graduates about starting their own business after graduation?

DS: Have a great team with you with people you can trust and who are just as passionate as you are.  Don’t get hung up on challenges that might make it seem like it’s the end of the road.  Keep pushing forward no matter what the case.  See any obstacle as a way to improve, as a way to challenge yourself.  Work smart, and be patient.  Everything is baby steps. As long as you are around the right people, there is no that can tell you what to do.  It all starts by believing in yourself.

CP: How do you balance starting a business, being a part of the music scene, and still hold down a 9-5 job?

DS: I would say by having dedication and setting priorities.  You have to understand what’s most important and when things need to get done.  Set deadlines.  Better yet, set reminders.  Right now things are all over the place for me, but honestly things are better than ever.  Creativeness, motivation, and passion are at an all time high for me.

CP: What resources in Philly, like Campus Philly, have helped you to succeed?

DS: Without a doubt, Temple University and my fraternity, Alpha Epsilon Pi, have definitely been there for me.  My current team has motivated me.  When it comes to my Broad Street team, I never could have done it without them.  It is really a team effort; it’s not just me.  My friends and family have also supported me.

Thanks to David Silver for taking the time to follow up with us and congrats again on all his recent successes! His parting words: “Stay tuned; the best is yet to come.” We can’t wait!
