Double Decker Music Series

An intimate mobile concert experience

Bingo Fundraiser this Saturday for Bowerbird (co-presenter of the DDMS)

Join us! $25 gets you in, gets you snacks and some bingo cards with a chance to win sweet prizes including a signed copy of Bruce Springsteen’s memoir. DDMS’ own Sebastian Petsu will be DJing throughout the night. Allen Crawford will host and call the bingo. There’ll also be performances by Ashley Tini, Laura Baird, Bhob Rainey. And as a bonus you’ll get to check out the sweet mid-century modern sanctuary of the Lutheran church that’s right next to I-House which’ll be the B-bird’s new base of operations. Bowerbird Philly has been such a positive force in my life, providing me with a decade of out-there sounds and helping to fund my ongoing pride and joy: the Double Decker Music Series. Please come out and have some fun and help them to keep on keepin’ on.
