We are super pumped to be playing a show at the Blinkin Lincoln on Saturday night (Aug. 8)! Now, in case you have not been there yet, the Blinkin Lincoln is a great new(ish) venue on Ridge Ave in the Manayunk/Roxborough neighborhood in Philly. It’s connected to Coyle’s Café and is a great chill room with good sound and a bunch of awesome paintings of Abe Lincoln on the walls.

Blinkin Lincoln gets my vote for one of the best places to drink/see music/play music in Philly because:

1.) They serve Lion’s Head beer
2.) Great sound, good people…the type of venue that people actually come in off of the street just to hear good music
3.) It is literally two blocks away from my house which means I can stumble home quite easily
4.) It is on the 9 bus route (my favorite of all the buses , so if you are coming from Center City, check it out…septa.com.)
5.) It is only a few short blocks away from the best cheese steak joint in the entire city of Philadelphia, Chubby’s. Not trying to start anything, but Chubby’s gives Pats and Genos a run for their money.

But we aren’t just super pumped (I need to eliminate that phrase from my vocabulary) about the venue, we are also quite jazzed (better than pumped?) about playing with our friends Dana Alexandra and the Peace Creeps.

Dana Alexandra and I are connected in a 6 degrees of separation friend of a friend sort of way. I saw Dana play in a duo a long long time ago, but I have never seen her solo act so this will be a treat. Her music is a great soulful/playful blend so make sure to get to the show early (by 10pm) to check her out.

We have played with Richard Bush and The Peace Creeps at Havana in New Hope, PA before and it was an absolute blast. They bring unmatched energy and fun get-the-heck-up-on-your-feet rock n’ roll to any room. They really are one of the best bands in Philly and they will be playing 2nd on Saturday night.

Betty goes on last (midnightish), so come early and look for us at the bar. We will be the ones drinking the Lion’s Head. Mention this article and I will buy you one.*
