Today's featured bands were Cheers Elephant, Bandname, Work Drugs, Buried Beds, The Extraordinares. “Philadelphia Local Music Day aims to bring more awareness to Philadelphia’s vibrant, talented arts community while encouraging Philadelphians to support the city’s local culture and economy.”, from Loves Local Music website.

Tomorrow is Mother's Day, which will bring the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure at the Art Museum. There'll be thousands of racers rasing money for breast cancer research and awareness.

Mother's Day itself was first established almost 100 years with the help of Philadelphia merchant John Wanamaker. His aid was enlisted by Anna Marie Jarvis after the death of her mother on May 9, 1905. A small service was held on May 12, 1907 in the Andrew's Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia where Anna's mother had been teaching Sunday school. The firrst 'official' observance came the next year in 1908 on May 10th. A service was again held in Grafton with a larger ceremony held right here in Philadelphia at the auditorium in Wanamaker's. Jarvis campaigned to get the holiday recognized as an official national holiday and succeeded in 1914. Quickly, Mother's Day became commercialized and Jarvis spent the rest of her life fighting against it.

In Sports,


Phillies lose 2-1 to Padres

Sunday will be absolutely beautiful, a mix of sun and clouds and warm, high 80 degrees in Philadelphia.
