Weekend Entertainment Groove

Hey there, first weekend of spring. 

Let’s do it…all. 

Sing Your Life Karaoke   Now, what could be better to celebrate the first official weekend of spring than belting out your favorite tune? Absolutely nothing. So, join Sing Your Life Karaoke goddess Sara Sherr all weekend (and week!) at any one of these fabulous Philly locations listed below and sing your little heart out.  Sun/9-2 Bob and Barbara’s, 1509 South Street Tues/9-2 12 Steps Down, 9th and Christian Thurs/9-2 Milkboy South Street/401 South St. Fri/9-1 Southhouse, 2535 S. 13th St. Saturday/9-1:45 Les & Doreen’s Happy Tap,1301 E Susquehanna Ave

Noises Off! A critically acclaimed show about a dress rehearsal gone awry, this Broadway darling has strutted into Philly for a fabulous spring run! But since this is the one that everyone will be buzzing about as we hop into April, get those good seats now and find out why The New York Times hails Noises Off as a show that “voyages to the outer limits of hilarity!” Go right here for much more fabulous info now!! Tonight through April 29th/Walnut Street Theatre/825 Walnut St. 

Rain:A Tribute to the Beatles A show that truly needs no explanation as anything and everything from the Fab Four still has the power to draw in audiences from across the globe. However, this year is extra special as the Beatles’ iconic record, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, is celebrating fifty years of captivating our lives. So, to commemorate this truly golden occasion, members of the critically acclaimed stage show have incorporated the entire album in their standout act……and they’re taking it to the beloved Academy of Music stage tonight for a limited engagement! But it’s only here until Sunday and this is one Philly run that you and the whole family don’t want to miss. For much more singing in the Rain, Philly Mixtape caught up with the incredible Steve Landes, who has effortlessly slipped into the role of John Lennon and is spilling all about it all right here. But first…get those tickets and Paul, George, John and Ringo will see you there!! Tonight through Sunday, March 25th/The Academy of Music/240 S. Broad St. 

qFLIX Philadelphia  Since there’s just so many rainbow-kissed cinema goodies in this year’s festival, you might as well go see them all while they’re still owning our lives until this Sunday. Go right here to learn more about this year’s supreme showings. Todrick Hall’s Behind the Curtain, anybody? Yas. Tonight-Sunday 

Demi Lovato/DJ Khaled  The time has come…for you to take your fave Demi grooves out of the shower (“Give Your Heart a Break” 4 lyfe, tho) and front-and-center at Wells Fargo Center, where she’ll no doubt be slaying alongside DJ Khaled tonight. Get those tickets while you can. 7 pm/Wells Fargo Center/3601 S. Broad St.

The Fifth Annual Red & White Ball   Because it’s never too late to get all dolled and gussied up and head to the hottest event of the Philly social season.  Not to mention, over the course of the past four years, this event has raised over 2 million dollars for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Now, that’s something worth getting all dressed up for. Saturday/6 pm/Philadelphia Marriott Downtown/1201 Market St./Get tickets 

NUMiNOUS Spring Art & Fashion Show  Slay the runway. Go right here for more info and you betta werk for your floral printed life. Saturday/8 pm/Philadelphia Brewing Co/2440 Frankford Ave

Philadelphia Gay Men’s Chorus:Two Boys Kissing With not one, but two performances taking over your Saturday, there’s no reason not to witness another standout performance from these truly talented gentlemen. Oh, wait, the Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus will also be joining the guys so there’s one more. Go. Saturday/2 pm/8 pm/Lutheran Church of the Holy Communion/2110 Chestnut St. 

Bronco:An All-Male Singing & Stripping Revue  The title of this event says it all, guys and gals. Giddy on up right here for more (or less..) info and then….get ready. Sunday/730 pm/Franky Bradley’s/1320 Chancellor St. 

What Could Go Wrong? Burlesque Troubleshooting & Craft Brunch  Okay, so..you’re a superstar owning the stage in all of your glory…and just when you think nothing can go wrong..there goes a major wardrobe malfunction and it’s all just hanging  out there for the world to see. So, what the f@ck do you do? Lucky for all of Philly and beyond, Bearlesque champion Turnpyke will be spilling all of the tea this Sunday during brunch on just what to do in such situations and chaos, all while you sip mimosas as far as the tassels can twirl. Sunday/12 pm/Victoria Freehouse/10 S. Front St. 

Drag Your A** To Brunch  If you’re one of the very few City of Brotherly Love-ians who haven’t helped celebrate Philly Drag Mafia diva Brittany Lynn’s 22nd birthday this month, you’ve got one more chance to bow down this weekend, kween! But since she can’t, um, blow out all of those candles on her own at this point (seriously, there’s been 75 celebrations), she’s enlisted the help and talents of Crystal Electra, Joey Martini, Princess Larisa, Connor Michalchuk and DJ Prince Pimb to throw down the most glitter filled Sunday Funday birthday/brunch drag-stravaganza that Philly’s ever experienced. Don’t miss it!!  Sunday/Doors/11 am/Show/12pm/Bourbon & Branch/705 N. 2nd St.
