Guns in town
Tickets are on sale this afternoon for Guns N' Roses
' show at the Electric Factory (7th & Willow) on Monday. The group also plays the House of Blues, in Atlantic City, on Friday. The Philly date was added in part due to local guy Jon Walmer
, who used to run Whiskey Dix next door to Electric Factory (now J.D. McGillicuddy's). He suggested to GN'R keyboardist Dizzy Reed
that the group play the Factory.
* For the record, we feel obliged to point out that any line-up without at least Slash in it isn't really Guns N' Roses. However, we also saw Axl Rose's current band a few years ago, and they sounded awesome. We're torn.
OUT AND ABOUT * Villanova men's basketball coach Jay Wright had a late dinner after the Villanova/UConn game Tuesday at Davio's (111 S. 17th) with ESPN basketball analysts Jay Bilas, Sean McDonough and Bill Raftery. The group went for a variety of appetizers, steak and pasta and four bottles of expensive wine. Bilas and Wright argued over the check, but Wright paid. * A host of tattoo artists in town for the recent Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention were taped at the Raven Lounge (1712 Sansom) for a pilot of a show called "Tattoo Wives."
Celebrity fashion stylist Anthony Henderson
is just back from Los Angeles, where he styled singer Kelly Price
in an Oliver Tolentino
dress for the Grammys. You likely saw Price interviewed there about Whitney Houston
, because Price was the singer Houston joined onstage at what would be her last performance.
