Philly Tech Week Presented by AT&T is flexing its music muscle this year, particularly in two big events.
Not only is there Questlove of The Roots fame, Dave P. of Making Time, Chris Powell of Man Man and more at Sunday’s Future of Music event at Underground Arts, but Philly rapper Freeway will be making an appearance during the reception to KEYSPOT‘s “Powering Creativity, Technology and Community” event on Lancaster Avenue this Monday. The rapper seems to be a supporter of the city’s effort to bridge the digital divide — you might have seen him on KEYSPOT ads around the city — and comes after a series of conversations about the intersection of access and digital literacy.
RSVP to and get more details about the KEYSPOT event here. [Monday, 4/22, 12pm-6pm]
