Pierre Robert

Pierre’s Weekend Calendar: November 10 – 12, 2023

November 102023 - November 122023

Good Day, Good Citizens! Each Friday after the Presidents arrive with their decaf coffee and Dave Edmunds serenades us with “Here Comes The Weekend”, the weekend can officially start. With the weekend ahead you might need something to do. I, Pierre Robert, run down an extensive list of things happening in and around the Philadelphia area. I call it Pierre’s Weekend Calendar. Everything from concerts to go to (Cowboy Junkies at the Scottish Rite Auditorium on Saturday), movies to see (The Marvels, rated PG-13), events (small and large) to partake in, and always what is going on here at WMMR.

Some things are fairly standard (like Philly Vegan Restaurant Week), some are totally bizarre (like the

Monster Mania Con 2023), and to be honest, for some of this stuff, I don’t have a clue as to what they are (like the Philly Flannel Fest). Hopefully, this guide of, some of what is going on in a fine village near you, will help keep you busy this weekend. Who knows, maybe you’ll even catch me at one or two of these events this weekend (please stop and say hi if you do).

On Sale Friday:

Queensrÿche w/ Armored Saint @ Keswick Theatre 5/1

Green Day w/ The Smashing Pumpkins, Rancid, and The Linda Lindas @ Citizens Bank Park 8/9

Hootie & the Blowfish w/ Collective Soul and Edwin McCain @ Freedom Mortgage Pavilion 8/16

Shows This Weekend:

The Spread the Warmth drive In an effort to help provide a winter coat to residents across the Philadelphia region this winter, the Brooklyn Bowl, the Fillmore, the Foundry, and Punch Line Philly are encouraging guests attending any of their upcoming November shows, to bring a new or gently used coat to the show to Spread the Warmth this winter and support Change Church and the Story Factory of Philadelphia. Collection bins will be placed at the entrance to each venue during these events.
