What to Do This Week: March 25 to 28

The District Karaoke competition, a craft beer bar crawl, and burlesque at the Gibson.

By: Jason Koebler

Monday, March 25

KARAOKE: Karaoke is usually more of a Thursday night event, but if your pipes are just begging to be used, head to Penn Social for District Karaoke. Get there early and you can watch people who take this stuff very seriously compete to be the best karaoke singer. The stage opens to the common folk (meaning you, probably) at 9 PM. Peronis are $4 all night. Free. 7 PM.

Tuesday, March 26

MUSIC: Punk rockers unplug their guitars for the Revival Tour, which is supposed to remind people of sittin’ around the campfire with a couple acoustic guitars. Dave Hause of the Loved Ones, Tomas Kalnoky of Streetlight Manifesto, Chuck Ragan of Hot Water Music, and two other singer/songwriters will perform some of their bands’ most well-known songs slowed down and acoustic at Black Cat. Tickets ($15) are available online. 8 PM.

Wednesday, March 27

BEER: Wednesday might seem like a weird day for a bar crawl, but with the Craft Brewers Conference in town, anything goes. Twenty bucks gets you a wristband; from then on, you’ll get $3 glasses of craft beer at Rocket Bar, Iron Horse, and Penn Social. Brewmasters will be at each bar to discuss their beers, and there’ll be prizes. Tickets are available online. 4 PM to 1:30 AM.

Thursday, March 28

BURLESQUE: Valentine’s Day, thankfully, is firmly in our rearview mirrors—but the Gibson is bringing back the naughty parts with its Lace and Feathers burlesque night. Dancers from Valentine Candy Burlesque will perform as the Gibson’s top-notch bartenders stir up classy cocktails. Free. 7 PM.
