The Brooklyn Bowl will christen a new venue in Philadelphia this November, opening with a special performance by Soulive (feat. George Porter Jr.) and a Bowl Train DJ set by Questlove.
“After opening locations in Vegas and Nashville, we’re over-the-moon excited to announce the grand opening of Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia this November!” reads an official statement. “And who better to christen the venue than Brooklyn Bowl OGs Soulive, who play November 4-6 (with George Porter Jr. on 11/4-11/5) and DJ Questlove, who brings his legendary Bowl Train party back to his hometown for opening night!?”
The new venue is located in Philly’s Fishtown neighborhood – right beside the city’s Fillmore – and its roster of upcoming shows includes Antibalas (Nov. 11), The Slip (Nov. 16-17), Talib Kweli (Nov. 27), Yola (Feb. 15), Lettuce (April 1-2) and many more.
Said co-founder Peter Shapiro, “Philadelphia has given us so many of the greatest names in rock, soul, funk, jazz, and hip hop. That deep history, along with Live Nation’s success and contributions in the Fishtown neighborhood made us excited to partner with Geoff Gordon and his Live Nation team in bringing Brooklyn Bowl to Philadelphia. Given everything we all have been through over the last couple years, now is definitely the right time for Philly and Brooklyn to come together as one family.”
Fans can also sign up for the venue’s email newsletter for a chance to win a VIP opening night experience for you and five friends.
