The Magic Garden

Well, the night started out pretty rainy but by the time we were set to perform, the rain had stopped and the crowd was ready. I always love performing at places where we get to take people by surprise… the PEX folks rented out the North Shore Beach Club for the Magic Garden party, but since it was last minute they were sharing the space with a birthday party from earlier in the night. Must have been a fun birthday for them!

Check out our fan finale below. The full set (thanks to Lauren’s awesome friend for recording it) can be seen here.

Last Minute Show!

It’s been confirmed! Sorry about the last minute notice… but we’ll be performing at the PEX Magic Garden Party at the North Shore Swim Club this coming Saturday night! We’re set to go on around 11 PM. Tickets are available here…. Facebook page for the event is here.┬áIt is sure to be a magical evening, come on out and join us!

Practicing for the Magic Garden

Come on by our Dress Rehearsal!

The Russian Roulette Variety Show is having our final Philly based dress rehearsal on Saturday, June 23rd. Guess what? You’re all invited! Its going to be a fundraising dress rehearsal, to help pay the cost for fuel and fire insurance and other wonderful but expensive things the whole group needs to make the show go on. The dress rehearsal is being held at the basketball courts at the corner of Tilton St. and E. Sergeant St in Fishtown (map) and is currently scheduled to run from around to start at 8pm (suggested to show up around 7:45pm) Donations welcome and much appreciated!
