PHILADELPHIA. Two men were killed in two separate incidents Wednesday night. A man, 36, was shot once in the chest on the 2600 block of Mimi Circle in Wynnefield Heights just after 10:50 p.m. He died at Hahnemann Hospital shortly before 11:20 p.m. A second victim, 30, was shot three times inside a vehicle on the 2200 block of North Cleveland Street in North Philadelphia at 3:46 a.m. He died at Temple University Hospital about an hour later. Police have not yet released a motive or identified the victims in either case. METRO/AW

One of the pioneers of Walnut Street’s restaurant row, the venerable Le Bec Fin, will shutter its doors after service Saturday despite initial reports that it would close in April. The restaurant is reportedly suffering from money problems so severe that they must close in order to stop the bleeding. It will be renovated and reopened under former Thomas Keller employee Nicholas Fanucci. METRO/AW

Behind bars for injecting behinds ‘Black Madam’ allegedly performed butt injections at ‘pumping party’ Still eyed in woman’s death last year

No parking Police arrested an allegedly drunk Kenneth Richard Mazik, 24, of Chadds Ford, Pa. Thursday for parking his black Jeep Cherokee on a runway at Philadelphia International Airport around 11:05 a.m. The airport was temporarily shut down for security reasons. Mazik is charged with driving under the influence and resisting arrest. METRO/SDL

The transgender woman being eyed in connection with a silicone injection death last year is behind bars on $10 million bail following her arrest at a “pumping party” late Wednesday. Authorities said Padge Victoria Windslowe, 42, also known as the “Black Madam,” performed an illegal butt injection on a 23-year-old exotic dancer on Feb. 19 at a home in East Germantown for $1,000. The woman was admitted to Lankenau Hospital last week for silicone in her lungs, but has since recovered, police said. Southwest Detectives got information there was going to be another "pumping party" Wednesday at the same location, where they took Windslowe into custody. They recovered syringes, a silicone substance and crazy

glue. She is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and related charges. Authorities also hope to charge Windslowe in the Feb. 7, 2011, death of 20-year-old Claudia Aderotimi. Aderotimi traveled from London with three friends to receive the enhancement in a Southwest Philadelphia hotel, and died following the procedure. The district attorney's office is awaiting a final ruling from the Delaware County medical examiner. “We’re hopeful,” Lt. John Walker, head of Southwest Detectives, said of additional charges. “Again, we’re just waiting for a few more studies to come back.” No information for Windslowe's attorney could be found Thursday.

and receive the injections. Walker said he believes women continued getting the Windslowe injections from Windslowe because they were told Aderotimi’s death was

a result of drugs and alcohol in her system. “We were very shocked by the fact that it was Ms. Windslowe again doing the injections and disappointed because we thought we had gotten the word out to the public regarding the danger of this procedure,” he said. METRO/SDL

Pushing paperless again

RIKARD LARMA/METRO

Council’s most ambitious member, Bill Green, won’t give up on dream of all electronic governance Once again nods affirmative to mayoral hopes Pushing Nutter The Councilman has tried tackling City Hall’s information processing system before. The new bills mandate that the city finance director submit a five-year plan for the implementation of a paperless system to City Council along with the budget. Green noted that he unsuccessfully pushed similar legislation two years ago, but last year the mayor issued an executive order requiring a five-year plan. “Hopefully, they’ll be receptive,” Green said. “But it’s probably unlikely because they don’t like to be required to present things that are subject to approval.”

In what once again seems to fit into prep work for a future mayoral bid, Councilman Bill Green laid out yet another broad vision for the way City Hall operates: this time with legislation introduced Thursday pertaining to the city’s information infrastructure “Basically, the bills require any transaction inside or outside the city to be able to be conducted in an electronic format and for every field and department to have an electronic database that is searchable,” he said Thursday. City forms, license and permit applications and service requests could all be completed online, along with the payment of bills, taxes and fees. Green hired urban planner Todd Baylson to work on the initiative. “There are three constituencies who are interested in an

open government system,” Baylson said. “There are groups that want transparency, groups that want business opportunities and those with the idea that this could improve the way the government functions. We are going to attack this on all three sides.”

Baylson said that the legislation would make cross-departmental information available in a centralized, searchable and public database. This would allow businesses with advanced technologies to analyze the information and encourage synergy between city departments. “Something like geographical information systems technology could allow multiple departments to communicate about the same place in the same language and realize, for instance, money is being spent there disparately without maximum impact,” he said. Green said the system could save the city $200 million a year because it would eliminate the need for space to house paper-based records and employees to monitor them.

Green wants to turn City Hall’s “paper pushers into people who service people.”

Manufacturing lost 5,000 jobs since ‘07 Report finds huge drop in short time, but sector was not even worst hit Construction work fell 19 percent RIKARD LARMA/METRO

City Controller Alan Butkovitz released a report Thursday showing a 17.6 percent decline in Philadelphia manufacturing industry jobs over the last four years with a total loss of about 5,000 jobs, from 28,400 positions in 2007 to 23,400. The construction industry also saw a loss, declining 18.6 percent and losing 2,200 jobs during the same period. But Councilman David Oh said that Philadelphia’s technology and creative economies may be stepping in to fill the void. “Though we are still trying to get manufacturing jobs, in the evolving nature of Philadelphia’s economy, creative and innovative sector jobs are really what are presenting opportunities for Philadelphians right now,” he said. Council passed a bill Thursday sponsored by Oh that authorizes a Council committee to investigate how to best stimulate the local creative and in-

Gains made The only sectors in which the city saw gains in employment were the education, health services, leisure and hospitality industries, according to Butkovitz’s report.

novative economies and take advantage of global opportunities related to the wares they produce. “We have to find out what is Philadelphia’s unique and specific role in the Northeast corridor and in the world as far as these industries,” he said. Examples Oh gave several weeks ago of entering the global economy included looking into the export of products generated by local niche artist communities, such as glass blown at East Fall’s Sherman Mills, and commodities indigenous to the state, like the many types of hardwood grown in Pennsylvania. Oh also said he has met with entrepreneurial groups including Seed Philly, which provides resources to local technology startups, to discuss ways to encourage growth of these types of businesses.

Deadly storms in the Midwest; more predicted Residents of storm-tossed Midwestern towns searched for photographs and mementos from their ruined homes on Thursday as the death toll from a line of tornado-producing storms rose to 13, while more storms bore down on the region. Adding to the toll, a 53year-old man who was trapped in his collapsed home in Harveyville, Kan., was removed from life support at a hospital and died, state officials said.

Deadly outbreak This week’s deadly storm outbreak raised concerns that this year could see a repeat of 2011 when 550 people were killed by twisters, the most in nearly a century

Another nine people in Kansas suffered storm-related injuries that required hospital care, state emergency management spokeswoman Sharon Watson said. The worst loss of life from the line of “super-cell” storms, which marched across the Midwest and produced 35 tornado reports from late Tuesday through Wednesday, was in Harrisburg, Ill., where six people died. Friday could bring more rough weather, forecasters said. “Tomorrow looks like it’s going to be another bad day for severe weather. All the parameters are coming together — humidity, wind shear, a very strong jet stream,” said AccuWeather.com meteorologist Henry Margusity. REUTERS

CAIRO. U.S. pro-democracy activists flew out of Egypt on Thursday after the authorities lifted a travel ban, a move that is likely to defuse the worst row between Washington and Cairo in decades. Egyptian authorities had accused the campaigners, including the son of U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, of working for groups receiving illegal foreign funding and prevented them from leaving the country.

n the latest installation of the culture war, Republican senators failed Thursday to secure the votes necessary to pass the socalled Blunt amendment, alternately known as “the conscience clause,” which would have allowed employers to optout of the Obama administration’s controversial insurance mandate — specifically the rule that forces insurers to provide such women’s health

services as birth control. Republican Sen. Roy Blunt said the proposal “simply preserves and protects the fundamental religious freedom that Americans have enjoyed for more than 220 years.” Democrat Sen. Barbara Boxer, however, called it “dangerous,” fearing that the law’s broad language could allow employers to exclude workers from any and all coverage they find morally suspect — including routine surgery to fix broken bones, for instance, if the boss happens to belong to the Christian Science Church. Blunt vows that the issue will not go away, and he may be right on that front, though perhaps to his party’s detriment. A Kaiser Family Foundation survey from mid-February finds that, despite a nearly even split on the Affordable Care Act — 42 percent of respondents held a favorable view of the law, 43 percent unfavorable — most Ameri-

A

s Republicans take aim at Obama in the 2012 elections, it is worth considering how they damage their brand by focusing on unpopular social issues in the midst of the nation’s most painful modern recession. Mitt Romney, to give just one example, furthered the narrative of his own flip-floppiness this week when he first publically disagreed with, and then, following right-wing outrage, immediately supported, the amendment. (“The idea of presidential candidates getting into questions about contraception ... I’m not going there,”

Romney said early on Wednesday. Later in the day his stance had changed dramatically: “Of course I support the Blunt amendment,” he said.) “Of course,” indeed: Romney’s sudden, if predictable, change of heart — moving steadily to the right, likely as a means of courting doubtful primary voters — represents the recent trend of radicalization in Republican politics. The week that moderate GOP Sen. Olympia Snowe announced she would not seek re-election (“I do not realistically expect the partisanship of recent years in the Senate to change,” she said), conservatives would do well to run the numbers. Republicans gamble everything in opposing Obama. If they succeed in November, it will have been worth marginalizing the few party centrists; but they won’t take him down by scaring off the middle.

It’s time for the networks to do a little spring cleaning on their prime time lineups A look at the new shows to find what’s in season and what’s out of date ‘Touch’ Premieres March 22 at 9 p.m. on Fox The plot: Kiefer Sutherland plays Martin, a widower struggling to provide for his emotionally challenged mute son, Jake, who has the ability to see patterns that connect everything in the world. The interconnectivity of seemingly disparate people is revealed through Jake’s actions and Martin’s attempts to understand them. Smells like: “Heroes” meets “Crash.” Tim Kring created both “Heroes” and “Touch.” And although Jake seems to have a supernatural view of the world, Kring insists the kid is not an XMan-in-the-making. “In terms of Jake being like a character on ‘Heroes,’” Kring says, “we probably had some characters that had abilities that would be in that [same] category, but this is not a superpower idea.

‘Awake’ Thursdays at 10 p.m. on NBC The plot: Detective Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs) lives two realities — one in which his wife is dead, the other in which his son has passed away — after a deadly car accident. He can’t figure out which one is reality and which one is a dream. Smells like: A mix between “Memento” and “Lone Star.” “Awake” creator Kyle Killen was also behind the short-lived drama “Lone Star,” about a con man who led two very different lives. “There were aspects of ‘Lone Star’ that were more difficult to get a wider, broader audience interested in,” Killen admits. “[The main character] was somebody that you couldn’t decide if you liked or hated.

Jason Isaacs is living in two worlds on “Awake.”

Smells like: “Desperate Housewives”: Texas edition. “GCB” is drawing comparisons to “Desperate Housewives” for its cast of overthe-top female characters and soapy story lines. But producer Robert Harling — who wrote about another group of strongwilled Southern women in “Steel Magnolias” — doesn’t entirely agree with the parallels.

“The fabulous thing about ‘Desperate Housewives’ is it’s sort of universal. It could be happening everywhere,” Harling says. “Our world could only take place in Texas and only in Dallas and only in a particular part of Dallas.” So is “GCB” a send-up of the characters found in Dallas, or more of a love letter to them? “The great thing about Texas people — and Dallas especially, because I have lots of family there — is they get the joke,” Harling says. “They understand that they are larger than life, and they love that. It’s more of a celebration of that whole Texas thing.” Spring fresh test: 88888

Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie and John Varvatos serve as celebrity mentors. Smells like: “Project Runway” on QVC. “Fashion Star” creator/ host Elle Macpherson says her mission was “to create a show that was as much about shopping as it was about fashion and capitalizing on interactive capacities and technologies so that people could actually buy what they were seeing immediately.

Smells like: “Taken,” with Ashley Judd in the Liam Neeson role. Remember that scene in “Taken”: “I don’t know who you are. But if you don’t let my daughter go, I will find you. I will kill you,” Neeson says. To what lengths is Judd’s character willing to go in “Missing”? “In a flashback, you see my husband and me working as CIA operatives together, and we are faced with some really wrenching moral dilemmas,” Judd says. “[Now the question is, ‘Will] I potentially set aside my values and integrity in order to accomplish what seems to be a more precious goal, which is save my child?’” Spring Judd fresh test: 88888 ABC/BOB D'AMICO

Smells like: “Planet Earth” on ice. “We were really motivated as a team to go and create this kind of ultimate portrait of the polar regions, because I think everyone’s aware that there’s a lot of change going on,” says series producer Vanessa Berlowitz, referring to global warming. “In some ways, we feel that this series may be a last chance to see these great wildernesses on our planet before they change forever.

The voice of the new languages for the role ‘I really wanted to capture the Danny DeVito is becoming quite the multilinguist — or at least that’s what it looks like. For his new film, “The Lorax,” DeVito took on the unprecedented task of recording foreign versions of the movie in Spanish, Italian, German and Russian. It turned out to be a much more monumental task

than he’d expected, though. “It’s a fun thing, but it’s timeconsuming. I thought it was going to be like a couple of days. I’ll do German in a couple days. Right! It’s more like a week,” he admits. “This is the thing, I don’t speak any of those languages. I speak a tiny bit of Italian, but I

did it all with coaches and phonetically,” DeVito explains. “What I would do is tackle one at a time. And Universal brought in people from the country because sometimes the lines were very long. And there was no way for me in German or in Russian to get through that entire line without mess-

Dr. Seuss film learned many performance,’ says the comic actor The eco-message Lou Dobbs made waves recently by insisting that “The Lorax” is an insidious attempt to indoctrinate children into an anti-industry mind-set. Danny DeVito insists the message is about being responsible while succeeding in business. “It’s not saying that we can’t be inventive and still think of things to sell or make or manufacture,” DeVito explains. “But the idea is that if we’re going to take the goods from the Earth — the supplies, the materials from anywhere — we should think about the sustainability of it and the replenishing of it.”

ing up some intonation. And I really wanted it to capture the performance, and I didn’t want people to think I had an accent.” The process of recording each language took about five days in a recording studio for DeVito and his advisers, and the biggest lesson he learned in that time was that he should’ve kept things simpler when recording the English version — or at least stopped for a breath more often. “There are about 90 lines of mine in the movie, and some of them sometimes you can’t break them up,” he explains. “Like if you say to me, ‘Coma esta usted?’ That’s one thing. Or in Italian if you say, ‘una tazza di caffe’ — that means a cup of coffee — it’s easy. But if you’re

saying something like, ‘Didn’t you see me come out of that stump with all the lightning and the thunder and this and that? Did you chop down that tree?’ Well, I didn’t think I was going to be doing this when I said those lines back then and didn’t spit in the middle.” Normally, animated films get dubbed by local actors for each territory, so isn’t he technically taking work away from actors in Europe?

“I did some Russian interviews on the phone and different places, and I always preface it with, ‘I know that you guys have great actors to do this,’” DeVito explains. “It was just one of those things where I got it in my head to do it, and once I said I would do it I didn’t want to back down.” NED EHRBAR METRO WORLD NEWS IN LOS ANGELES

Costa, Thomas and JB are three nerdy high school kids who, like every other high school kid in every other high school movie, decide to throw a house party that will get them noticed and attract otherwise unattainable ladies. Thomas (Mann), whose parents are out of town for the weekend, wants to throw himself a birthday bash that will be “big enough to be cool.” He figures 50 people maximum should do the trick. But his foul-mouthed friend, Costa (Cooper, who makes Jonah Hill in “Superbad” look saintly), has other plans. He spreads the word through every medium possible — including Craigslist — and suddenly this cool-but-manageable party gets

Suhanosky

One surefire way to ease the Sunday night blues? Gathering friends and family together for a classic Italian supper. “It’s the way the Italians keep the family together,” says Ron Suhanosky, author of “The Italian Table” and chef at New York’s Nonna’s Table. “We all have busy lives throughout the week, and Sunday seems to be the day that everybody gets together.” In his household Sunday spreads consists of some basics: “Definitely some pasta, some really nice jarred tomatoes — they don’t have that flavor of the tin can, they’re fresher. And bread, definitely a really good rustic bread or focaccia, [plus] lots of antipasti stuff that you can nibble on throughout the afternoon: marinated olives, cured meats,

cheeses. Dessert is typically coffee and biscotti or fresh fruit — that’s how the Italians typically do it,” says Suhanosky. “When I was a kid growing up, our Sunday afternoon dinners ended always

with biscotti or a ricotta pie.” Winter, Suhanosky adds, is the perfect time to dig into a Sunday feast. “A lot of the heavier foods that are cooked around this time of year lend their hand to larger amounts. [Entrees like] roasted leg of lamb, pork loin and pork chops [roast better] whole and in larger amounts.” And even if your kin isn’t nearby, you can still enjoy the hallmarks of the meal. “It doesn’t have to be family,” Suhanosky says. “I mean, all us create our own families with friends, neighbors — people that just come together to the table. That’s the reason why [these suppers] happen — to bring everybody together.” MEREDITH ENGEL

Pete Sparber moved to New York in the early ’80s intent on living the life of a starving artist. It didn’t pan out that way. After a few years, he settled into a good, solid corporate job and never looked back. Until now. “I didn’t have the confidence in my work or the social skills. I mean, I was a painter in New York in 1980, but I was far too introverted to go to parties,� he says in his soft-spoken tone. “I didn’t have the mental tenacity to do that whole scene.� But Sparber never stopped filling notebooks with endless pages of drawings, and six years ago — while living in Wichita — his stifled artistic energy burst onto the canvas in im-

pulsive, expressionistic paintings. Soon Sparber and his wife were looking to move east again. They recently landed in Fishtown, where the painter has found an artistic home at Highwire Gallery. Sparber’s first show in Philadelphia, “Demarcation,� opens on Friday at Highwire, with more than a dozen oil paintings and at least 20 drawings. These works are unlike anything Sparber has ever created: Working from magazine clippings, he has placed illustrative, dramatic human situations within bright, abstract compositions. “When I draw into the abstraction, the abstraction suddenly becomes this emotional field. We see the figures in the

Happy birthday indeed, Bieber

When you’re the most famous 18-year-old in the world, cake ain’t cutting it. No, Justin Bieber had a much better Thursday than you did. Let’s start with the gifts. On Wednesday, his manager stopped by “The Ellen Degeneres Show” to surprise him with a Fisker Karma — that’s an eco-friendly sports car for all of you Kia drivers — estimated to be worth at least $100,000. Ryan Seacrest’s offering of a Costco membership was, admittedly, not as extravagant, but Bieber will make up for it with his gifts to himself: He’s looking to buy two L.A.-area birthday mansions priced between $6 million-$8 million, according to TMZ. He spent Thursday, we can only assume, driving his new car to scope out his potential new Hollywood pads — when he wasn’t parachuting, that is. Justin! The whole point of being 18 is that you don’t yet need to buy things and jump out of planes to feel alive. Have fun, kid, but set some serious funds aside for 28.

George Clooney: Classy as ever

Don’t look to George Clooney to put a rest to the gay rumors that follow him around. “I think it’s funny, but the last thing you’ll ever see me do is jump up and down, saying, ‘These are lies!’ That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community,” Clooney tells the Advocate. As for how he’ll go down in history, he’s thought of that, too, and doesn’t care: “I’ll be long dead and there will still be people who say I was gay. I don’t give a s—.” In that case, we’d just like to throw this out there for the books: Clooney was also an avid Metro reader, who had various liaisons with the talented Features writers.

The rapper proposed on Thursday after hinting that a plan was in the works at the Grammys last month. “She Said Yes!!!” he tweeted, along with a photo of the ring. Take note, ladies: You want a rapper buying your diamond.

Social issues are a distraction for GOP The Republicans have a dilemma: Their candidates have veered off course. The shift from debating relevant issues to denigrating personal attacks is not in the electorate’s best interest. The contentious positions on extreme social conservative issues are divisive to the party, and might cause them to lose independents. If the party cannot get their candidates back on course, the possibility of consolidating their base and winning in November appears slim to none. GLENN HAYES, VIA E-MAIL

Would someone tell the Ayatollah Santorum that America is a democracy, not a theocracy.

RE: “PIERCING INFANTS AKIN TO CHILD ABUSE”: Isn’t it a tad bit

of a stretch to compare a pierced ear to child abuse? There are many baby boys circumcised in many cultures and religions in the States and across the world — is that abuse? People baptize their children, they aren’t given a choice to pick their religion, is that abuse as well? I would rather see a pierced ear than a child being subjected to secondhand smoke; to me that’s abuse. EKENG MANCZUK, VIA E-MAIL

This is definitely not true at all. I got my ear pierced as an infant and so did my sister. To me this was not child abuse in any way, shape or form. Yes, adults should be able to

make their own choices and choose what to do with their bodies, but studies have shown that it’s less painful to get girls’ ears pierced when they are infants. They also feel the pain for a very short while and then it heals with daily proper care and cleaning. Don’t get upset about an article advertising ear piercing safety dos for baby girls.

Aries March 21-April 19. Personal gains are likely to come about in a sporadic fashion. Thus, you may have to act at the exact moment they hit, because in the next second your chance could vanish. Taurus April 20-May 20. You catch on to things pretty quickly and, as such, you’ll have the ability to employ the good ideas of others to your own ends. Use this gift wisely. Gemini May 21-June 20. Watch out, because material conditions are likely to fluctuate for you. You can be fortunate one minute, but unless you immediately take advantage of it, you’ll lose out when things dive. Cancer June 21-July 22. Provided you don’t let negative companions convince you otherwise, something that you’ve longed for can be achieved as you envision. Stay positive at all times. Leo July 23-Aug. 22. Follow your instincts when events are telling you that trends are running in your favor. If you wait too long for verifiable information, the tides may shift against you before you know it.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22. Avoid getting involved with friends who only have commercial matters on their mind. If you begin to deal with them, you could come out on the short end of the stick. Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 23. If you feel the luck of your companions is superior to your own and you have an opportunity to ride their coattails, latch on with everything you’ve got. Scorpio Oct. 24-Nov. 22. Whenever someone whose judgment you trust regarding social matters offers you advice, don’t be insulted and let it go in one ear and out the other. You could benefit greatly from it. Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21. Don’t rock the boat in a joint endeavor if your counterpart already has the situation well under control. Your input could be disruptive instead of constructive. Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19. Be supportive when your mate is making a presentation to others. If you disagree with any of what she or he says, discuss it privately and let your spouse make the corrections if needed. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 19. You could be fortunate in developments that require you to subordinate your interests on behalf of others. You’re smart enough to know that thinking solely of yourself can produce paltry benefits.

What’s ‘Real Good’ in Philly Electropop duo City Rain’s new video is their ‘love letter’ to the city — with a little extra lovin’ for the Great Northeast We caught up with Ben Runyan and Jarrett Zerrer to talk snow day dance parties When Ben Runyan and Jarrett Zerrer set out to make a video for their maddeningly, purely, confusingly happy single “Real Good,” they wanted to create what they call a “love letter to Philly.” Because they’re from here, this involved driving around the Northeast and asking packs of burly guys waiting for takeout sandwiches to flip them off for the video’s opening sequence. “It wasn’t tough to get people to give us the middle finger — it was almost as if they were waiting to give it to somebody,” recalls Zerrer. “Nine

times out of 10, they were so quick to oblige.” After attending both Springfield High and Temple University together, Runyan and Zerrer formed electropop duo City Rain in 2010. Their latest EP, “I’m Gone,” was released in the fall, but it wasn’t until January’s lone snow day that they set out with director Sarah Fry, an adjunct photo professor at Temple, to shoot “Real Good.” With plenty of under-the-El dancing, some Phanatic tail action, backyard blunts and parking lot seagulls, it’s a fitting tribute to not only the bouncy, gritty opti-

mism of the song, but to a city where there’s always an empty liquor bottle lying around for anyone in need of a makeshift microphone. “Anybody that’s from Philadelphia, there’s a lovehate relationship,” says Runyan. “It can be a really dark place — you have your Edgar Allan Poes — and it can also be a wonderful place: There’s the ever-cheesy story of Rocky and breaking through. Times get rough, but the concept of a good here is a very real good.” MONICA WEYMOUTH

On location Most of the video is shot in the Northeast. South Philly will want to put on earmuffs for Runyan’s explanation: “We specifically went to the Northeast, because I think the Northeast is the most true Philadelphia. When the Phillies won the World Series the images I remember are of people celebrating on Cottman Ave., not on Broad Street.”

What they’re listening to City Rain will play The Barbary's Tiger Beats party April 2. In the meantime, they suggest you tune in to 88.5 XPN on Friday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. for the March edition of Making Time Radio with Dave P.

Quoted Man Man drummer Christopher Sean Powell brings Adventuredrum to the Art Museum’s “Art After 5” event on Friday evening at 5. The performance is free with museum admission.

“Adventuredrum’s far from a marching band, but has a similar vibe. It’s very danceable; I always have that in mind when I’m composing. I’ve never been interested in making music for people to just think about. The music’s abstract at times, but very danceable. I want to get everyone moving.”

hiladelphia drummer Christopher Sean Powell has played in many bands over the past decade. He was a member of weirdo experimental collective Need New Body, a founder of avant-garde pop group Icy Demons and he goes by the stage name Pow Pow when

playing with rowdy indie-rock band Man Man. He has recently been busy working on a few new music projects, one of which, Adventuredrum, gives its world premiere performance Friday evening at the Philadelphia Museum Of Art’s Art After 5 event. Adventuredrum’s a 15-piece

Afro-Beat inspired ensemble consisting mostly of drummers, but also includes bass guitar and synthesizers. Among its members are Man Man’s Matt Gibson and Jamey Robinson, and several drummers from well-known local bands: Chris Ward (Pattern Is Movement), Ricardo Lagomasino (Many Arms), Jason Kourkounis (Bardo Pond) and Chris Wilson (Ted Leo & the Pharmacists). Given the personnel, Adventuredrum’s a bit of a Philly musician all-star project. “It’s an adventure for all of us,” says Powell. “We’re excited to try out some new things, and this project has really shaken me out of my comfort zone.”

This won’t be the first time Powell’s played in large drummer ensembles. He has participated in two of the Boadrum events organized by Japanese experimental band Boredoms: In 2007, Boadrum included 77 drummers playing together in Brooklyn; the next year, there was a performance by 88 drummers in both Brooklyn and Los Angeles. “There’s something really powerful and fun about getting so many drummers together,” says Powell. “And I wanted to create something similar in Philadelphia.” ELLIOTT SHARP letters@metro.us

Chamberlain’s 100-point performance unlikely to be duplicated Team to honor event this weekend No Sixer has scored 30 points in a game all season. But 50 years ago Friday, Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points for the Philadelphia Warriors. Since then, no one has come close to the 100-point mark. Kobe Bryant put 81 on the Raptors in 2006, David Robinson scored 71 in 1994 and Michael Jordan’s career-

high was 69 in 1990. But 100? “It’s ridiculous,” said Thaddeus Young. “I scored 68 in a high school game once. It was just that I was better than everyone else on the court.” During the 1961-62 season, Chamberlain must have felt the same way. The Overbrook High product averaged 50.4 points and 25.7 rebounds for the season. And on that nowfamous night, the 7-foot-1 center got 63 shots up as the Warriors beat the Knicks, 169-147. The career 51.1 percent freethrow shooter made 28-of-32 from the charity stripe. Sixers shooting guard Jodie Meeks remembers the 2009 night he scored 54 points for

Kentucky. “It seemed like everything I threw up was going in. It was back in the days when I could shoot whenever I wanted to,” Meeks said. “One hundred points in a game, it’s crazy. Probably never be broken again, it’s something that happened from a great player.” But the guy who has come the closest disagreed. “It probably won’t happen in our generation or the next, but it will happen,” Bryant told reporters. “Right place, right time, right team … the right opponent.” The Sixers are honoring the 50-year anniversary during Friday’s game against the

Eagles play tag with Jackson, still hope for long-term deal Call him The Franchise — at least for now. The Eagles placed the franchise tag on receiver DeSean Jackson Thursday. The deadline for handing out franchise tags is Monday and Jackson was scheduled to become a free agent on March 13. “We want DeSean to be an Eagle for the long haul and this is a step in the right direc-

tion to accomplish that,� said GM Howie Roseman in a statement. “DeSean is a talented player and a proven playmaker in this league and we look forward to him continuing his career in Philadelphia. We will continue our efforts on getting a long-term deal done with him.� By applying the tag, the Birds must pay Jackson an av-

erage of the top five players at his position. That would be about $9.5 million per season, or the Eagles could trade Jackson. His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, expressed a desire for the two sides to agree on a long-term deal. “If my client gets franchised, believe me we’re going to roll up our sleeves and hope that we can convert that into a

Medical Research

multi-year contract,� Rosenhaus told Sirius NFL Radio before the announcement. After the Eagles’ seasonending win over the Redskins, Jackson told reporters that he’d be fine with it. On Thursday, Jackson tweeted a picture of himself at the beach, and wrote the words: “Humbled moment!!�

Jackson will make about $9.5 million next season.
