First, a little “New Rules” by the fabulous Dua Lipa as we all brace ourselves for the new work week ahead, followed by a list of Philly entertainment events for your Monday night that will give you all of the motivation you need for your post-weekend recharge.
And of course, Go Eagles!
Let’s do it.
Sing Your Life Karaoke w/ Sara Sherr While it may be more frozen than Madonna outside, that shouldn’t stop you from heading out to warm up those vocal chords thanks to the fabulous Ms. Sherr and her extensive collection of Sing Your Life Karaoke grooves, which are bound to take over your song butchering pleasure all week long at all of these fabulous Philly collections listed below. Sun, 9-2 Bob and Barbara’s, 1509 South Street Tues, 9-2 12 Steps Down, 9th and Christian Thurs, 10-2 W/N W/N 931 Spring Garden, Fri, 9-1 Southhouse, 2535 S. 13th St. Saturday, 9-1:45 Les & Doreen’s Happy Tap,1301 E Susquehanna Ave
Les Miserables You’ve witnessed the long-running Broadway musical in all of its glory and you wish it was you who won the Academy Award instead of Ms. Hathaway for the film version because you belt out ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ just oh, so well….and most importantly, you are Susan Boyle. But now here’s your chance to catch this blockbuster musical while it’s here in Philly…but you better hurry because like the best kind of “Dream,” the critically acclaimed national production is only here for a short while, so you better grab those tickets…now. And you can go right here to do it. The Academy of Music @The Kimmel Center/Various showtimes & ticket prices/240 S. Broad St.
Full Front Street Looking for a delicious weekly Philadelphia Burlesque fix? Then you must head to Victoria Freehouse tonight (and every Monday!) and join your always ridiculously talented hostess, Ms. Veronica Vicious along with a fresh roster of tassels twirlin’ talent, with tonight’s show including the lovely likes of Mustang May Hem, Viktor Devonne, Jesha and Mae Rose. Don’t miss it! Every Monday/9 pm/Victoria Freehouse/10 South Front St.
Pegsicle While it may be oh, so cold, ice creator Peter Woolsey is back to warm things up at La Peg tonight by bringing you some of the hottest ice sculptures you’ve ever seen. This time he’s bringing a team of local artists along to craft a what’s sure-to-be stunning temporary ice sculpture garden, all of which will make for one shimmering Monday night event you’ll have to see to believe. The Ice Bar @La Peg/5 pm/140 N. Columbus Blvd
Fetty Wap Because when you kickstart your week with “Trap Queen” and “679,” it’s an absolute guarantee you’ll make it until Friday..and in life. Grab those tickets. TLA Philly/8 pm/334 South St.
Neon Dreams If you’re looking for a more laid back way to jump into the week ahead, then the vibes provided by indie pop trio Neon Dreams will certainly have everything you need.
