R. Eric Thomas‘s most definitive life moments can be summarized by the songs of Patti LaBelle and Beyonce.
If you personally know the comedic storyteller, this isn’t news. However, when Thomas shares his fascination with “New Attitude” and “Get Me Bodied” with a room full of strangers, it’s, well, special. Now Philadelphians will have the chance to discover what’s been billed as “the best rock and roll storytelling event in New York” by Flavorpill; The Soundtrack Series is coming to Tin Angel on July 11, and it’s hosts, the incomparable Dana Rossi and Philadelphia’s own Thomas, promise to make this one music-inspired night that’ll keep you laughing and entertained.
The evening features writers and performers sharing true, personal stories about the music that inspires their lives. In addition to stories from Rossi and Thomas, the audience can expect to hear tune-laden tale tales from actress Liz Filios, Gregg Gethar, Hillary Rea, Mary Webster, and TJ Hurley.
For a taste of what to expect, check out Thomas’s previous podcasts confessing his love for Ms. LaBelle and Beyonce. We also have a preview video of one of the past Soundtrack Series slams at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge:
