October 27, 2021— Brooklyn Bowl, the award-winning live music venue, bowling alley, and restaurant has added 15 shows to its inaugural lineup at their Philadelphia location in Fishtown. Additions to the extensive lineup include Shovels & Rope, Bouncing Souls + Face to Face, Breaking Benjamin - Unplugged, White Denim, Melvin Seals & JGB, Breakbot (DJ set), J.Roddy Walston, Ghost Light, Be Our Guest: The Disney DJ Night and more.
Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia will host The Rock and Roll Playhouse, a family concert series, with Music of The Beatles For Kids & More. Hosted at historic music venues across the country, kids “move, play and sing while listening to works from the classic-rock canon” (NY Times).
The venue opens its doors to the public when soul-jazz trio Soulive kickstarts a three-show engagement entitled “Bowlive” on Thursday, November 4 with the late night party hosted by Philly legend DJ Questlove, complete with a 24-lane bowling alley and food courtesy of the Blue Ribbon Restaurant Group.
The flagship venue in Brooklyn was previously ranked the No. 1 Busiest Club in New York City and nominated for Nightclub of the Year at the 30th Annual Pollstar Awards. The Las Vegas establishment has been voted Readers’ Choice “Best Music Venue” the last four years in a row in Las Vegas Weekly's annual “Best of Vegas” awards. Brooklyn Bowl Nashville, which opened this past June, is already one of Music City’s go-to venues. The opening of Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia is an exciting next step for the fast-growing and most-beloved live music venues in the nation.
Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia will hit the ground running with a multi-genre initial lineup of more than 45 shows including Philly’s own DJ Questlove, Grammy-nominated Americana songstress Yola, New Orleans legends Dirty Dozen Brass Band, iconic NYC MC's Talib Kweli & Rakim, rising country-pop star Dylan Scott, avant-rock trio The Slip, eclectic international sounds from Antibalas, Red Baraat, L’Impératrice, jam staples Twiddle, Spafford and Keller Williams with a heavy dose of funk-soul from Soulive, Lettuce, Turkuaz and The Greyboy Allstars, and even family focused programming with The Rock and Roll Playhouse daytime series.
