JUNE 22 Warm Wednesdays: Featuring Perry "Vision" Divirgilio & DJ Franchise B-Day Bash!

Perry “Vision” DiVirgilio, the 6′7” North Philadelphia native, is far from quiet, best known for his melodic delivery, and witty word play. Vision is a chameleon. Off stage, the urban griot is approachable, and light natured. In the community, he focuses on the next generation volunteering time with the youth. On stage, he’s intense, focusing on what he feels people need to hear. He’s not much concerned with what people want to hear and takes pride in bringing un-touched issues to the forefront. He’s organized a national spoken word college tour. Vision has shared billings and stages with Saul Williams, The Last Poets, Sonia Sanchez, Ursula Rucker, Tank, Joe, KRS-1 and Doug E. Fresh.
