Last year, I didn’t have the chance to attend Touchstone Theatre’s Jakopa Punch Bowl. Lisa filled in for me and did a fantastic job, but I was bummed that I couldn’t make it, because it sounded like an interesting event and a great time.
I was right. Last night’s installment of the event was nothing short of fantastic.
After a successful kick-off last year, Touchstone Theatre presents its second concert fundraiser Jakopa’s Punch Bowl on Friday from 7-10 p.m. at the Charles A. Brown Ice House. This Mardi Gras-themed evening of eclectic music by three local bands, New Orleans-style lite fare, and all-you-can-drink beer and wine supports upcoming original works at Touchstone, including the April premiere of Dictators for Dummies.
Legend has it that because a rodent saw his shadow last week, we have six more weeks of winter.
Let’s be honest – it’s probably not warming up anytime soon regardless, but at least our music scene is bringing the heat with these…
Can’t-Miss Shows of the Week!
On Saturday night, Mardi Gras came to Bethlehem.
As we noted in this week’s Can’t-Miss Shows post, Jakopa’s Punch Bowl sounds like a jolly good time at The Ice House on Saturday night. Jakopa’s Punch, The Bastard Sons of Burt Sugarman, and The Charts Funk Band are throwing a fundraiser — complete with king cake, a cup of jambalaya, a cold beer, and an evening of eclectic music — in support of Touchstone Theatre’s upcoming street theatre spectacle – The Jakopa’s Punch Processional.
We wanted to learn more, so we reached out to Lisa and JP Jordan at Touchstone Theatre, who filled us in.
