MARCH 29, 2009:

THEE MAXIMALISTS, THE RED MASQUE and IGORíS EGG to PLAY AT NEW PROGRESSIVE ROCK SERIES IN PHILADELPHIA

On Sunday, March 29, The North Star Bar will play host to a the second show in a new Progressive Rock Series in Philadelphia. The performances tickets will be $10, advance tickets can be purchased via www.ticketweb.com, and the events are for those 21 years of age and older. The North Star Bar is located at 2639 Poplar Street in the Art Museum Area of Philadelphia and can be found online at www.northstarbar.com.

The Red Masque [Rock-in-Opposition, Zeuhl, Space Rock] of Philadelphia, will be assisting in the curation of shows and will perform as part of the March 29 event, which will feature headliners Thee Maximalists [Avant, Free Jazz] from Baltimore and openers Igor's Egg [Zappa, Jam] of Philadelphia.

The goal of this series is to first feature regional acts as to grow a local audience for Progressive Rock music in Philadelphia. Step two would be to cultivate more local talent in closer proximity to Philadelphia, so as to encourage the growth of the series overall. Finally, we would hope, given the proper support of the series, to be able to attract national and international talent, and give them more options for live performance on the east coast.

Heyday Entertainment is a Philadelphia based booking and promotions company that has hosted events all over the city, at venues including The Trocadero, The Five Spot, The Barbary, Pontiac Grille (aka JC Dobbs), NXNW, Silk City, and The Broad Street Ministry among others over the years. Heyday has exclusively booked and promoted events for The North Star Bar since it opened in 2001, and has worked with The Khyber in Old City for over 10 years.

Booking inquires for this series can be directed to Lynnette Shelley with The Red Masque, lynnette@theredmasque.com, and Andrew Miller with Heyday Entertainment, andrew@heydayentertainment.com.
