Fill your days with these inspiring events in in music, the arts and books.

April 23 at the Fillmore Philadelphia

This idiosyncratic crooner, with a heart of fool’s gold, is not for everyone. But if you like your string-laced balladry and retro-leaning folk rock hardwired with a brutal honesty and an often absurd cynicism, Father John’s universally applauded 2015 album, I Love You, Honeybear, is worth owning. Live, he’s as entertaining as he is unpredictable.

April 29

Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, actor, painter … David Bowie was all of these things—and he’s the muse behind the party that kicks off the Main Line Art Center’s annual Spring Gala Exhibition. The shindig features a Bowie-inspired DJ set and a School of Rock battle of the bands. Face painter Peanutbutter will be on hand to transform guests into their own version of Ziggy Stardust.
