For most the day after Thanksgiving means waking up before dawn, wrestling crowds at the mall in an attempt to start holiday shopping, and everyone’s favorite: LEFT-OVERS. Instead of dealing with complaints about cold turkey head to the Venetian Club where for the ticket price of $40 ($35 for advance tickets) you can save the left-overs for Monday’s lunch and enjoy an evening of food, friends and entertainment.
Beginning at 7:00pm (doors at 6:30pm) at the Venetian Club, 8030 Germantown Ave Philadelphia PA 19118 (215-247-9858, the first of three bands will kick-off what hopes to become a tradition in North Philadelphia, THE BLACK FRIDAY FREAK-OUT. Beer and wine is included in the ticket price. The evening will be catered by Drake’s Gourmet Foods, Primo Hoagies and Tavern on the Hill. Tickets can be purchased at the discounted price of $35 (cash only) at Hideaway Music in Chestnut Hill. The ticket price will be $40 at the door on the day of the event.
ROGER LEARNARD BAND (Roger Learnard, Tony Garro, Drew Ericksen, Reverend Chris, Bruce Marcolina and special guest David Cope) will perform at 8:00pm and 10:45pm, with co-headliners URBAN DRAWL (Bill Becker, Sam Briger, Dan Capecchi, Jason Fifield and Jon Howe) at 7:45pm and 10:00pm. Openers THE RUSTY NEILS: A NEIL YOUNG TRIBUTE (Reed Ingersoll, Evan Michener, Mike DeQuevedo and Tony Garro) will perform at 7:00pm and 9:15pm. Included in the ticket price will be hors d’Oeuvres from Drake’s Gourmet Foods and (arguably) Philly’s best wings from Tavern on the Hill will be available along with party trays from Primo Hoagies. Endless beer and wine are also included.
Advance tickets may be purchased at the Box Office at Hideaway Music, 8612 Germantown Avenue (215) 248-4434, for only $35 (CASH ONLY). The price will be $40 at the door of the event.
