It was a November afternoon that I sat on the front porch of my local cafe and deeply thought about an idea; Nothing out of the ordinary as I did this often and much. I drank lukewarm coffee and discussed with some old acquaintances the idea of a group of young adults putting together a “Rolling-Stone” type magazine/website; To tell you the truth, many talented people laughed and shook off the offer, for that I am deeply saddened because they’re going to miss one hell of a ride. I proceeded to reach out to all different types of people from all different walks of life, many haven’t even met yet. That is the beauty of it. It’s as if I'm placing together the pieces of a puzzle, slowly but surely. Our generation is in need of something refreshing. Our brains will race and our eyes will quickly process what lies before us. What lies before us is The Passion Collective, a collective production founded in New York. It will be fueled by talent, hard-work, and most of all passion. It will only work if YOU contribute your piece of passion to the puzzle. Everyone is passionate about something. I, Zachary Franck have selected a group of unique individuals who all bring something to the table. From poets to journalists, photographers to bloggers, sports enthusiasts to hip-hop heads, I promise you that there is something for everyone. I truly believe in this and I believe in you. This project will stay true to it's name, always.Unlike other websites/magazines,The Passion Collective will actually make you think. As Hunter S. Thompson once said, “Buy the ticket, Take the ride”. Please join The Passion Collective as we all embark on this journey together; Why would you watch the puzzle being built when you can help build it!?

What Makes The Disco Biscuits Play So Well At The Fillmore?

The Disco Biscuits and Philadelphia are inseparable. Since the band's inception at UPenn in 1995, they've claimed the city as territory for uncharted musical exploration. From Silk City and TLA to The Electric Factory and The Mann Center, the Biscuits have undoubtedly carved their initials in the pavement of Broad Street for eternity. And now the City of Brotherly Love has another venue for the band to call home, and it's by far the best one yet. The Fillmore is the premier venue that Philly has always needed. It'll be the seventh time that the Biscuits have graced the stage, and you know what they say about lucky number seven.

The Fillmore has quickly become one of the band's favorite venues to play and they're going to bring the ruckus. Between it being a hometown run for two out of four band members, and the Fillmore's layout being supreme, the Disco Biscuits are guaranteed to bring their A game. They're more than comfortable there and it shows throughout the various segments that still have replay value years later. Don't believe me? See for yourself.

Three shows. Six sets. Be there.
