A Word About Prizes

You may have noticed from our poster that we are offering prizes for "best and worst" performances at Live Band Karaoke at The Mambo Room on Saturday, March 13. Perhaps you are curious as to what exactly this means. This was intentionally left ambiguous to (a) give us some time to figure it out and (b)...

Hometown Pride

Nothing about music or karaoke in this post, but I did want to link to this story that was featured in Friday's Tribune.I think it sums up our town quite nicely -- a cozy village with cosmopolitan flair. Glad The Barn can be a part of it.

A Word From The Hungry Hound

Looking for a pace to dine before Saturday's show? We've got a word of advice from ABC7's very own Hungry Hound, Steve Dolinsky. He suggests that La Grange is well worth the drive for these three restaurants: Kama Bistro, Q Barbecue, and Prasino. If he only new about The Ark Band and The Barn's...

We've Got A Ticket To Ride (And Why You Should Care)

At The Barn, we know how good it feels to hold that ticket to an upcoming concert. At various times, we've camped out for tickets (remember those days?), frantically dialed through endless busy-signals, meticulously followed complicated mail-order instructions (and decorated those envelopes just-in-case), and navigated multiple broswer windows and "virtual waiting rooms" on onsale day,...

Mission: Promotional

More and more details are falling in to place for our first event. Of course, we'll reveal them all in due time, but in the meantime it's time to crank up our promotional efforts and get the word out.You may have noticed some of The Barn's posters popping up at strategic locations around town....

We're Putting On A Show!

It occurs to me that you've got to really love concerts to attempt to put one on. Most people are pretty much content just going to see shows, andaren't compelled to start booking bands and putting up posters around town.Admittedly, we at The Barn love concerts. That may be putting it mildly.We've got...

Poster / Setlists: Phil Lesh & Friends @ Tower Theater, Upper Darby, PA 11/11, 11/12 & 11/13, 2013
