Temple's Urban Archives screening at The Piazza

Tomorrow night (Tuesday, Sept. 13) at 7:30PM, the Piazza at Schmidts in Northern Liberties will be hosting a reprise of a program of nontheatrical films from Temple University's Urban Archives. Called "Sound and Vision" the program highlights recent preservation and digitization work done on the archive's film and video holdings; it is curated by John Pettit and Kathryn Gronsbell. Some contents:
  • David Bowie visiting Veterans Stadium
  • free-jazz performer Sun Ra and his Arkestra
  • synthesizer expert Gerson Rosenbloom
  • Philadelphia International soul legends McFadden & Whitehead
  • punk/ wave stalwart Ken Kweeder
  • the organist at the Spectrum
  • jazz-vibraphonist Khan Jamal
  • The Mummers string band
  • the original Electric Factory concert venue
I take it the screening will be in video projection. The event is free and open to the general public.
