Pierre Robert

Pierre’s Weekend Calendar: November 3 – 5, 2023

November 32023 - November 52023

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 (Moon Hooch at Ardmore Music Hall Friday), movies to see (Priscilla, rated R ), events (small and large) to partake in, and always what is going on here at WMMR.

Some things are fairly standard (like the Apple Festival at Peddler’s Village), some are totally bizarre (like the Weirdo: The East Kensington Arts and Oddities Festival), and to be honest, for some of this stuff, I don’t have a clue as to what they are (like Fintastic Fall Days). 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:

Preston & Steve Present Don McCloskey and The Band @ Brooklyn Bowl 12/2

Beru Revue Christmas Show @ Ardmore Music Hall 12/23

Shows This Weekend:

*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.

The Spread the Warmth drive coincides with Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia’s second anniversary celebration shows with Lettuce on Friday, November 3 and Saturday, November 4.

Collection bins will be placed at the entrance to each venue during these events. Coats will be donated to Change Church to ensure residents across Philadelphia who need a coat are able to get one to stay warm this winter. In addition to collecting at shows, donations will be accepted during Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia’s open hours which can be found at BrooklynBowl.com *
