Got a question? Send it to me at Sadie@thetriangle.org! Dear Sadie, I’m really, really shy and not so good at making friends.

POPPED! Music Festival, which took place Sept. 23-24, did not occur under ideal circumstances.

A hot, crowded auditorium crammed full of students and faculty in their heavy robes is not the most ideal place to be during a gorgeous fall day, but the new and exciting information revealed during this year’s convocation more than made bearing the heat worthwhile.

Let me introduce you to the Philadelphia Film and Music Festival. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s something like the underground cousin of Chicago’s Lollapalooza or Los Angeles’ Coachella.
