Double Decker Music Series #3


DDMS #3 is now SOLD OUT!

Thanks everyone who bought a ticket! They’re now all gone. If you missed out, fret not! We have more concerts in the works for the Spring and Summer of 2015! Sign up for our email announcements and stayed tuned.

Boarding begins at 7:45 for Sunday’s event with Noun & Rat Catching and the bus departs promptly at 8pm. It’s gonna be a bit chilly on the open top, so bring an extra layer. The forecast calls for a low of 56 degrees that night. Fall is here!

DDMS Welcomes Noun & Rat Catching on September 14th!

We’re pleased to announce our next adventure on the bus!

The Double Decker Music Series is pleased to welcome Noun (aka Marissa Paternoster of Screaming Females) and Rat Catching (Jennifer Melinn’s dark solo synth project) for its third installment of the event.

Join us on Sunday, September 14th at 8:00 p.m. for a unique and intimate mobile concert experience on an open-top double-decker bus. Before, between, and after the music, tour guide Sebastian Darkly Petsu will share dry wit and history about the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection.

About the Performers

Noun, aka Marissa Paternoster is an artist and musician from Elizabeth, New Jersey.  She currently makes a living writing, recording, and performing in the band Screaming Females.



Rat Catching

Rat Catching, aka Jennifer Melinn, gathers her inspiration from the darker, twisted sides of synth and a deep seeded love of horror films. Using her complete lack of musical training to her advantage, she manages to confidently piece together unpredictable noises and sounds to create satisfyingly full layers of drone, distortion and measured cacophony. Her work has been described as having a nasty edge, and as “slow-roasted, doomsday synth action that—if there’s any justice—will be playing when the world slowly, painfully disappears into a black hole.”

Event Details

As with our previous two events, boarding begins at 7:45pm at the northeast corner of 5th and Market Streets by the Wells Fargo building.

THE BUS LEAVES AT 8PM SHARP. It’s a mobile event, so you can’t show up late or the venue will be gone! The event finishes up back where we started at 10pm.

As an incentive to show up on time, our sponsor Little Baby’s Ice Cream, will be providing FREE ICE CREAM SANDWICHES for the first 15 guest on board. So get there early!

This event is BYOB (but please, no glass, and remember there is no restroom on the bus).

$16 per person. Advance tickets only. There will be no walk-up sales.  Only 35 seats are available and this event will sell out. (Double Decker Music Series #1 and #2 did!) So please, don’t sleep on it.

If it looks like rain, the event will be held the following day, Monday September 15th at 8pm. A message will be sent out by 5pm on the day of the event letting ticket-holders know about the rescheduling.

New Site!

DDMS has put up a shiny new website. We hope you enjoy it and find it useful!
