Hey there, Cool Little Brothers and Sisters!
We’ve got a couple open-to-the-public gigs coming up this weekend, and we wanted to let you know all about ’em.
First, on Sunday, September 23rd, we’ll be playing at Fergie’s Pub in Philadelphia. But before you read on, please note that this is no ordinary gig: unless you’re a die-hard theater geek/playwright stalker, this might not be the gig for you. Just being honest. We will be background music.
Here’s the deal: this is a fundraiser for the PDC and will feature live music by Hot Breakfast! and other artists, a silent auction, drinks, complimentary finger foods, guest bartenders, and most importantly…a chance to enjoy a Q & A with Nicky Silver, fresh off from a Broadway run of his hit play “The Lyons.”
The PDC is Philly’s premiere organization for new play development, so it makes sense that Nicky, originally from the Philadelphia area, should return for a visit!
In addition to “The Lyons”, Nicky Silver has written great plays like “The Food Chain”, “Pterodactyls”, “The Eros Trilogy”, “Fat Men in Skirts”, and many others. His awards include the Oppenheimer, Helen Hayes Award, and the Kesselring. He has also been nominated for other awards including the Outer Critic’s Circle, Drama Desk, and Drama-Logue Award.

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!!
On Monday, September 24, your favorite acoustic dork-rock power duo from Delaware will open up an evening of great music to celebrate Wilmington! We play at the Arts TastIN’ at the Delaware History Museum (505 Market Street) at 6:30. We’re only playing for 20 minutes or so, but there are lots of neat acts that follow us, including our friend Jessica Graae and the cast of City Theater Company’s upcoming musical Bat Boy. Tickets are only $5.
Stay tuned, friends. We’ve got some great stuff coming up on the horizon.
Yours in ROCK,
Matt (The Suburban Legend)
