Saturday: Hoppy Easter; Beards, Bands & Brew; Zoetropolis anniversary & more

Ah, Saturday, you are a peach. Here’s what’s on our radar today and tonight. Check out the Full Moon parties here. Find more live music, bar parties and events in Fly’s entertainment calendars.


The Fridge wishes you a Hoppy Easter (Lancaster)

The Fridge craft beer bottle shop hosts a hop-heads’ feast day with the fourth annual Hoppy Easter beginning at 11 a.m. The event is a tap takeover featuring single, double and triple IPAs. On tap this year: Stone Enjoy By 4/20/15, Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin, Jack’s Abby Mass Rising, Cisco Island Reserve Double IPA, BrewDog Hardcore IPA, Funk Double Citrus, Dogfish Head 120 Minute, Green Flash Palate Wrecker and Deschutes Hop Henge.

The Breakfast Club – with Bloody Marys! (Ephrata)

The Ephrata Main Theatre screens the John Hughes ’80s classic The Breakfast Club in honor of the movie’s 30 anniversary on April 4 (and again on April 18) at 10 a.m. Have your breakfast with Lily’s on Main’s special breakfast-themed menu and $5 Bloody Marys. You know how much vodka Ally Sheedy would have in her Bloody Mary? Tons.

Beards, Bands and Brews at Federal Taphouse (Harrisburg)

Federal Taphouse hosts Beards, Bands and Brews. Participate in the Beard, Mustache and Lady Beard competitions (ladies can construct fake beards and join in the hirsute happenings); check out music by The Plums, Very Americans, Pity Party and Adam Stehr; and try Rogue’s Beard Beer – made from a strain of yeast from the brew master’s beard (yes, we know how that sounds but it’s supposed to be great). Try your luck at the raffle to win signed items from Peter Frampton, Lynyrd Skynyrd and some other apparent surprises. All proceeds benefit the family of Elliott – a six year-old boy suffering from cerebral palsy and blindness whose family is raising money for home modifications. You can also buy Elliott’s Mix Tape – a collection of children’s songs recorded by national and local musicians, including our own digital editor Mike McMonagle.

Strangled Darlings at Holy Hound Taproom (York)

Strangled Darlings, the Portland, OR-based literary-leaning duo of George Veech on mandolin and harmonica and Jessica Anderly on cello and bass, make a stop at Holy Hound Taproom. If David Bryne and Tina Weymouth made funky acoustic Americana and indie pop music (and actually got along) it might be something like the Strangled Darlings. The Strangled Darlings’ album Boom Stomp King is due out later this year. Admission is free. Show starts at 9 p.m.

Zoetropolis indie movie theater 2 year anniversary party (Lancaster)

How do you celebrate the two-year anniversary of operating as downtown Lancaster’s lone independent film theater and events space? With a costume contest-karaoke-photo booth-dance party, of course. Head to Zoetropolis starting at 7pm and give the team a high-five on the rebirth of one of the Lancaster arts scene’s O.G.’s.

Rock & Roll Ruckus! at American Bar & Grill (Lancaster)

Lancaster’s DJ Salinger (one of our favorite DJ names, by the way) teams up with Mike Madrigale (owner of Mr. Suit Records) tonight to spin an eclectic mix of “punk, garage, psych, surf, weirdo, freak beat, fuzzed-out rock and roll records” (verbatim from the event page) at American Bar & Grill in Lancaster. This is deep cut territory, folks…
