Find Your Empire State Of Mind With Jay-Z, Feel Free With Circa Survive At The Bomb Factory And Laugh It Up At Infinity Baby At Texas Theatre.

With more and more states loosening up their approach to marijuana possession charges or outright making the much beloved substance legal in either medical or recreational forms, there’s bound to be misinformation about it all.

And misinformation is what appears to have put Dr. Liang Bartkowiak’s gynecology office in the spotlight after a news report listed Bartkowiak’s practice as being eligible to prescribe medical marijuana.

Her office was bombarded by calls from men hoping to be certified as medical marijuana users, even though the Pennsylvania law that the report was about only allows the medical use of pills, oils, vapors and liquid marijuana forms and not marijuana in plant form.

Misinformation. It’ll get you every time you don’t read the full story or the fine print. So don’t be misinformed about today. There’s plenty going on tonight, as you can see from list of happenings below. — Obed Manuel

Circa Survive, Thrice at The Bomb Factory
Circa for short, is a love potion with equal parts of Anthony Green’s angelic voice and its complex lyricism, if you didn’t already know. But if you are familiar with this Philly band then you know why its fans are the die-hard kind. Many fans seal the love for this band by getting safe camp tattoos. The band promotes its music as a safe space in which the fans can be themselves and feel good. The band’s newest record, The Amulet, proves the band still knows how to create emo music, dare we say, better than anyone else. — MN
