Dispatch From Jefferson Berry
What’s The Best Thing You’ve Binged? Halo Top Cookies & Cream Ice Cream; It’s not Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey, but it’s only 320 Calories.
Which Philadelphia Restaurant Should We Get Takeout From? Malelani for George’s famous Greek Platter and some fresh live music. Here in Fairmount there’s a bunch of good ones; Umai Umai is our sushi place. Even with a limited menu, it’s one of the best sushi restaurants in Philly. But when I’m really saying f- it, a slice from Fairmount Pizza is the real deal.
Which Philly bands should we be listening to? Now I know you’re not going to expect this from a folk rocker like me, but Sheer Mag is the shit!
Which Non-Philly bands should we be listening to? It’s been over a year since the last Hayes Carll album. It’s been 5 years since the last James McMurtry album. REK? Even longer. Still listening to the Texans.
When This Is Over Who Do You Want To Play A Show With? Ben Arnold has the best band and the best songs in town. The UAC would love to give him a run for his money as opener.
First public place you want to go to after quarantine? I’ve just finished a benefit show for Mount Airy Groceries, a group that provides fresh food for families with out enough to eat. Christmas, a bunch of us raised a good amount of cash for Philabundance with a holiday album and concert. Food insecurity sucks.
First activity you will do after quarantine? I really need a haircut.
Have you embraced cocktail hour? What’s your favorite cocktail? I’ve really loved watching my fellow folkies get trashed on Zoom. When you ask about cocktail in the singular, I don’t really understand what you’re talking about.
Where should we be donating our dollars to help out our fellow Philadelphians? I’ve just finished a benefit show for Mount Airy Groceries, a group that provides fresh food for families with out enough to eat. Christmas, a bunch of us raised a good amount of cash for Philabundance with a holiday album and concert. Food insecurity sucks.
What’s your favorite jawn? There’s a bench, just up from boathouse row on Kelly Drive. I like sitting there with my guitar, throwing songs into the the river.
