Weekend Entertainment Groove

Hey there, this weather and the weekend. 

Let’s live it up as if our names are Ja Rule and Case, shall we? 

Yes. 

Sing Your Life Karaoke Now, what could be better to celebrate this weather (!!) 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 along with spring, 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.

On Your Feet! What happens when you take the music, moves and legacy of Gloria Estefan, the production prowess of Emilio Estefan, add in some truly stunning choreography and take it all from the Broadway stages? You get this critically loved Tony Award winning musical, which is wrapping up its breathtaking week-long run this weekend! So, you know what that means…there’s only a few chances left to witness it all while it’s here in Philly, so grab those tickets now!  Tonight-Sunday, April 15th/Academy of Music/240 S. Broad St. 

DTF:Daryl & Timaree Fun Hour Are you down to have, like, the best Friday night ever? If you answered “yes” to that question (if you answered no, there just might not be any hope left), then you must giddy on up to Franky Bradley’s tonight. Once you head upstairs, the hilarious Daryl Charles and the always yas Dr. Timaree Leigh will be more than ready to serve up the latest edition of the best sexed up comedy game show on the planet. And if you have anymore questions…just go.  Tonight/830 pm/Franky Bradley’s/1320 Chancellor St. 

P!nk/Beautiful Trauma Tour It’s all going down (or should we say….way, way up?) tonight at the Wells Fargo Center when our beloved pop rock kween rolls into town for her latest tour stop. And if you need a little help in preparing your perfectly P!nk-ed tailgate party, here’s 5 ways to help the entire tri-state area get ready for..it all. Because we must. Go right here for tickets while you still can! Tonight/630 pm/Wells Fargo Center/3601 S. Broad St. 

Shut Up & Dance It’s really that simple. You know what else is really simple? Grabbing those tickets (right here…if you still can) to experience this one-night-only werk-stravaganza that’s all about promoting the best kind of life possible…the dance life, of course. And it’s all brought to you by the incredible MANNA organization, which you can get to know by strutting right here. And then..go…seriously. Saturday/Forrest Theatre/8 pm/1114 Walnut St. 

Sashay:A PGMC Drag Revue In what’s certainly going to be the sickest and fiercest event of the weekend, join a gaggle of some of Philly’s hottest queens including your host, Ms. Bev, as well as Brittany Lynn, Lili St. Queer, Maria Top Catt, and many, many more as they sashay down the Voyeur runway in support of your favorite singing kweens from the Philadelphia Gay Men’s Chorus! Yes, it’s going to be quite a showing of every color of the rainbow—or as Ms. Lynn would say, it’s going to just so gaaaay—so grab those few tickets while you still can (there still might be some left for the balcony) and everyone will see you there, kween!  Saturday/8 pm/Voyeur Nightclub/1220 St. James St. 

DJ LOSH Before you go see this tremendous Philly based DJ own NOTO this Saturday night with his latest fire, “One More Chance” (plus much, much more), get to know him right here in this week’s Rewerk Wednesday spot as this red-hot and rising talent is demanding your headphones attention. Let’s boogie. Saturday/NOTO/10 pm/1209 Vine St. 

DJ Robert Drake at Concourse Dance Bar  Have you been to Philly’s newest dance hot-spot yet? If not, then this Sunday night is the perfect night for you to check it out as the one-and-only Mr. Drake will be taking over and serving you with the hottest ’80s and ’90s grooves this side of the Schuylkill! It’s the party to end all weekend parties, so don’t miss it! Your Monday general well being will thank you. Sunday/Concourse Dance Bar/9pm/1635 Market St. 

Bradley’s Bucks present Up in the Air In case you missed Wednesday’s night’s showing of this spectacular high-flying spectacle brought you by the fine gentlemen of Philly’s only all-male dance troupe, then you must go for the close of your weekend. Not only will you get one hell of a show, but it’s all for a fabulous cause as proceeds will be going to benefit Family Support Line, which is taking incredible measures to prevent and treat victims of child sexual abuse. Let’s do it and make a change for the kids, kids..because we must. Sunday/730 pm/Franky Bradley’s/1320 Chancellor St. 

Queens in the Sky   Look up in the sky….it’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s just Philly Drag Mafia sorceress’ Brittany Lynn’s wig 50 floors up in the air a top the entire city of Philadelphia. Which means, the time has come…..to get ready for another fierce serving of Queens in the Sky, which is guaranteed to put the slay in your Sunday Funday. Also joining Ms. Lynn, you’ll be treated to the tremendous talents of Lady Poison, Morgan Wells, Georgia Versace Couture and Dusty Relix, all while DJ Carl Michaels sets the mood with those grooves. For much, much tea on this truly spectacular drag-stravaganza, spill it on over at the official Sky Philadelphia page…now. Sunday/Sky Philadelphia/11 am-4 pm/1717 Arch St. 

Andy Grammer Although the “Fresh Eyes” crooner’s Philly tour stop is sold out, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t swoon over his latest, well-received set, ‘The Good Parts,‘ and then patiently wait for your next chance to see him up close and oh, so personal. Sunday/TLA/8 pm/334 South St.
