Brandi Carlile’s concerts are always intimate affairs—even when she’s headlining venues like the Beacon Theatre, Red Rocks Amphitheatre and the Chicago Theatre—but this fall she’s upping the intimacy quotient even further with the Pin Drop Tour. Carlile will be playing completely unplugged—no amps, no microphones—at small venues that are uniquely suited to such performances including a Philadelphia tour stop at the Perelman Theater on Saturday, October 4 at 8 p.m. She will be joined onstage by The Twins (band mates/co-writers Tim and Phil Hanseroth) and cellist Josh Neumann.

Featuring a range of objects created over the past 60 years, the exhibition What Would Mrs. Webb Do? A Founder’s Vision celebrates Aileen Osborn Webb, who established the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), then the Museum of Contemporary Crafts, in 1956. On view from September 23, 2014, through February 8, 2015, the exhibition explores how Webb, through her advocacy work at MAD and other leading institutions across the country and internationally, championed the skilled maker as integral to America’s future.
