Pierce Boykin, 31, of the Stenton section, was charged with attempted murder in connection with a stabbing outside the Che Bar & Grill that left a 27-year-old man whom police have declined to identify in critical condition.

The opening acts at Friday's Wired Fest, a five-hour concert at the Susquehanna Bank Center Center in Camden, were meant to set the stage for headliner Nicki Minaj. But the show, sponsored by Wired 96.5 (WRDW 96.5-FM,) was neither a cohesive selection of like-minded artists nor a purposefully eclectic conclave like the Roots Picnic, but an accidental hodgepodge of seven performers, including B.o.B., T-Pain, and Diggy Simmons, taken from the station's playlists. Ironically, it turned out to be a fitting introduction for Minaj, whose attempts to conquer every corner of the pop universe simultaneously has stretched her prodigious talents to the breaking point.

In yesterday's column , I wrote about how  Nicki Minaj was caught cuddling up with North Philly rapper Meek Mill after Friday's Wale  concert at the TLA. The couple has been teasing a relationship for some time, with Mill guesting on two songs on Minaj's new album, "The Pinkprint," and throwing out the line "Baddest bitch in the game wearing my chain, I'm ready," on his new track, "The Get Back (Freestyle).

A GRUESOME double-stabbing in the shadows of a small East Germantown tavern yesterday sent shockwaves through the upper reaches of the music industry. De'Von "Day Day" Pickett, a veteran road manager who worked with the likes of Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Kanye West and Britney Spears, died after being stabbed numerous times in the torso about 2:30 a.m. while brawling with another man in front of the Che Bar & Grill, on Stenton Avenue near Johnson Street, police said. Pickett and a co-worker, Eric Parker, in Philly to help Minaj prepare for an upcoming tour, had visited the bar at the end of a long night on the town, choosing it because they were friends with one of the employees, a police source said last night.
