Covert Concert Series (CCS): a team of professionals offering artists the production and platform to live stream their music, has streamed local talent such as Echos Talk Back, Plynth, AMFM, Hunter Root (of Medusa’s Disco), and Uncle Jake & the 18 Wheel Gang since its late-May conception.
Folks can tune in (for free!) for a three-day streaming event this upcoming August 21-23, 2020 for a weekend filled with musical performances from both the local and world-renowned jam bases, a variety of workshops, and keynote speakers. Streams will feature closed-captioning, American Sign Language Interpretation, and other embedded accessibility tools.

The short takes viewers on a tour of a paradigm shift, using Klaproth as the subject. In the opening scenes, she’s rifling through bills, Philadelphia Parking Authority-issued tickets, and other usual paper pests that come with adulthood. While taking a ride on her Vespa scooter, she approaches a forset staircase with two mystical nymphs—who have been following her the entire video—enticing her to drink a potion.
