Octoberfest at The Senator!

Last night was the kickoff of The Senator's month long Octoberfest 70th anniversary celebration. It all started with the first ever Karaoke night and contest at The Senator. Some very talented singers graced the stage. I should have video in the next day or two. Karaoke will continue on Friday nights throughout October, building to a final costume karaoke contest on October 30th. Admission is free.

Tonight, the Senator Cipher Series brings B-Boys and B-Girls to the stage for a night of hip-hop and poetry. Music by DJ Booda Monk. UCAM (United Community Access Media) is sponsoring the event. Doors open at 9:30 PM and the event starts at 10:00. Admission is free.

Sunday, The Senator, Park Vibe, and UCAM bring D'Jembe Jazz Jams to The Senator. This free drum circle event is a continuation of the Druid Hill Park drum jams that happen every Sunday in the park during the summer with a group of folks, some of whom have been playing together for 30 years. Instead of the weekly jam session ending in the colder months, The Senator is bringing it inside for Sundays in October. Event starts at 4 PM. Bring your drums and your dancing feet and enjoy the vibe!

Thursday, October 8th, celebrate The Senator's 70th anniversary with an evening of Jokes & Jazz starring Joe Clair, Dominique, Smooth Jazz sensation Phillip "Doc" Martin, and hosted by Larry Lancaster. Doors open at 7:30 and tickets are $30.

Many more events will be announced in the month of October. I don't always find time to list the events on my blog. The best ways to keep track of upcoming events at The Senator are to sign up for The Senator's mailing list or follow the official Senator Theatre twitter or become a fan of Friends of The Senator Theatre or join the Friends of The Senator Theatre group on facebook, or follow Friends of The Senator Theatre on twitter.
