Us

We are The Fuhrl, a community of artists, musicians and writers, from Philadelphia, PA. The specific goal that catalyzed the formation of this community is a desire to encourage and support all forms of creative expression, specifically across disciplinary boundaries. In Philadelphia, we have initiated a series of multi-disciplinary showcases for local creative talent. Held at various venues throughout the city, these events serve to bring together multiple local bands, visual artists, poets, and performers, forging new connections between the various communities that support the featured artists. The showcases have been successful in exposing supporters of one form of art to several they may not have sought out otherwise, and encouraging collaboration across Philadelphia’s local creative community. We aim to extend this recipe for creative unity into other communities with our side project, Loki the Space Bus. Ultimately, we are working toward a long-term goal: to manifest a more physical creative platform in the form of a permanent communal living space, such as a farm or warehouse space, or both in symbiosis.

The Fuhrl Presents Streaks of Light/Left of Logic/Impressionist/Skytree

Hello all of you beautiful people. The Fuhrl has been having some issues lately. Mostly of separation anxiety. It's been a long long time since we've thrown anything together and for that we owe our greatest apologies. So in an attempt to make up for this gap in time we are throwing an event at Little Bar. It won't feature all of our typical frills(BOO) but everyone performing is of the highest caliber I can assure you of that. I would not miss this show if I were you...yeah I mean you...

The Fuhrl Presents a Bon Voyage Westward, Ho! Bash

Come out, come out, for a night of ruckus and hooplah!
5- 10$ (pay what you can) ALL AGES!

COSTUMES SUGGESTED!

As the lot of us are going to hop on a crazy red and silver bullet and ride it all the way across the country to start a West Coast Chapter of the Fuhrl, in order to fuhrther promote this concept of oneness that we have (hopefully) helped to instill in our beloved Philadelphia. So the idea is to throw a (certainly not final) banger to demonstrate just how well creative collaboration works in this town, and at the same time to pass the torch to all you cats who are stayin' and keeping the love rollin' [*crosses fingers*]). So bring back that fabulous energy, your favorite getups, and those groovy dancin' bones that have made all the other showcases so beautiful!

And don't worry we will return to you as soon as the sun comes back to bake our fine town out of wintery oblivion! Us fuhrlies require a minimum amount of Vitamin D in order to uphold our radness, in lieu we are traveling to where Vitamin D levels are high and we can maintain RADNESS.

If any of you awesomies want to really get involved with the East Coast Chapter, and keep throwing Philly' creative folks into the big melting pot with events like these, find Peter Pan at the party! Give her your digits and await her call...we need all the enthusiasm we can get and there will be several roles needing filling, yep yep!

The list of performers goes as follows:

Band Line-up:
THE PAT FRIEND FIVE
THE KNOW (http://www.myspace.com/fishbreatheeasy/)
SOULDIERS OF SOUL (http://www.facebook.com/souldiersofsoul/)
MAGIC MAN (http://magicman.bandcamp.com/
