It's nigh-on to 6 p.m. and it occurrs to me that I haven't posted my picks for today's Infringement events yet, so here goes:
At 7 p.m. outside of Lucky Dogs (formerly Lagniappe's) in Allentown, a piece of street theater called "El Pato" gets under way. The enticing, enigmatic description: "Brazilian football player or the national sport of Argentina?" Only one way to find out.
Hit up Allen Street Hardware from 8 to 10 to hear the band Driftwood, which describes itself thusly: "Using acoustic instruments, a scrap wood kick box, clapping hands and stomping feet, Driftwood breaks down barriers between old and young, rockers and folkies alike."
Hallwalls, starting at 8, hosts a variety of local musical acts, including Beneath the Willow Tree, Steve Baczkowski, Pam Swarts, Scranton and All of Them Witches.
You'd be a fool not to cap off your evening in Nietzsche's, where the party goes through 1 a.m. with that venue's "Wham! Bam! Thank you... Slam: BIF Burlesque & Poetry Showcase." The night features Infringement vet MC Vendetta and other poets, along with performances from local burlesque troupes the Stripteasers, The Zombettes and the Boom Boom Betties.
