Three picks for what to do in Central PA on Thursday, August 13.
1) Yoga & Open Mic Night at Zoetropolis (Lancaster)
Tonight, Zoetropolis is booming. The movie showing this evening at 6:30 p.m. is Dark Places, based off a novel by “Gone Girl” author Gillian Flynn; Charlize Theron plays a woman approached by a secret society 25 years after her brother massacres her whole family (or does he?) But if that’s not up your alley – fine! That’s not the only reason you should go. At 6:45 p.m., Zoetropolis will also be hosting some yoga (no, you can’t stretch out and watch Dark Places at the same time. Probably.) Finally, at 8:30 p.m., enjoy an open mic night. (Suggested donation is $5, but if you feel moved to give a little more to help keep events like this at your local super-cool art house theater going, we sure won’t stop you.)
2) Shine Delphi at Grain + Verse Bottlehouse (New Cumberland)
Nothing goes better with a warm summer night than a cool brew and some even cooler jams. Shine Delphi is bringing along his folksy blend of slide guitar, harmonica, and ragtime-reminiscent vocals to Grain + Verse from 7:30-9:30 p.m. tonight. While you’re there – have a bottle and some pizza. (Catcher in the Pie looks like it’d pair well with just about anything, but hey – we’re not the boss of you.)
3) Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival (Gettysburg)
Dig out your washboard! Today kicks off the 71st semi-annual Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival at Granite Hill Camping Resort. Tickets are all over the place, from a $125 four-day pass at the gate to a $35 entrance on Sunday only. With a lineup like this, though, those prices are more than justified. Today you can catch bands like the Gibson Brothers, Rhonda Vincent & the Rage, and the Lonesome River Band – and that’s just today. Get on down and enjoy yourself.
Want more? You don’t have to wait ’til 3 p.m. to check out FLY’s live music, bar entertainment and performing arts calendars.
