Hola hombres, welcome to May. As you know, we’ve done New Year’s Eve shows, we’ve done Thanksgiving eve shows, we’ve done Christmas Eve Eve shows, we’ve done Halloween shows, we’ve done Flag Day shows, and we’ll never do a St. Patrick’s day show. What we haven’t done yet though, is a Cinco De Mayo show. To remedy that, we’re going to kick you in the sombrero with TWO (2!) of them this Saturday. Please join us THIS SATURDAY for some serious Cinco de Mayo jams, food, and booze hosted by our new friends at BITBY and our old friends TJ Kong & the Atomic Bomb.
Early in the evening, we’re going to get things started over at the BITBY party. There are a ton of excellent bands all night and we’re told there’ll be a whole Rio Grande‘s worth of beer and margaritas at your disposal. This is a special gig for us because we’re thrilled to help out the folks over at Little Berlin for their Kickstarter launch and fundraiser. The idea here is to raise funds for the cultivation of a community garden performance space to be known as “The FAIRGROUND” in Kensington. Check out more info HERE or click on the flyer above^
2430 Coral Street, Philadelphia PA 19125 – Penrose on at 7PM sharp!
Pero, hay mas. After the early evening jams in Kensington, we head to…whatever you call that neighborhood over at 12th and Callowhill for a big time shit show. I wish I knew how to say “shit show” in Spanish. Six years of Spanish classes, and no “shit show.” Anyway. Penrose & TJ KONG AND THE ATOMIC BOMB are back at it again at Underground Arts which you may remember from this past Halloween. To add some hot sauce to this recipe for disaster, Lily & The Parlour Tricks from New York are playing as well, along with a secret headliner. KONGO DE MAYOOOO!!! Muy bueno. Forgive me.
