R. Mackenzie Lewis's Lounge Lizard Bingo
with special guest Curt Waugh
Friday, August 13th @ 8 PM
Lounge Lizard Bingo is back for more summer fun! Created by R. MacKenzie Lewis, premiered online in April of 2020, just after the country and world went into lockdown. Born out of the need for a distraction from the global chaos, it included music, singing, games, nostalgia, shenanigans, trivia, and allowed for audiences to connect with the host and each other through an interactive game they could access on their computer or smartphone.
Lounge Lizard Bingo returns to the Kerrytown Concert house in person with a live audience! Hosted by its creator, the in-person show will continue to have the specially designed digital game that audiences can access on their phones throughout the show which will allow them to participate in trivia, earn point, and have a chance to choose songs to be performed. The winner of bingo will get a chance to play a game with those for a chance at prizes!
Special guest Curt Waugh will again join R. MacKenzie Lewis in singing a wide variety of favorite songs from Elton John, Sam Cooke, Mungo Jerry, and more accompanied by general mischievousness, trivia, all while trying not to get into too much trouble. www.LoungeLizardBingo.com
Important Info Regarding The Lot Lounge
The Lot Lounge is an outdoor venue in our back parking lot. Seating will begin 30 minutes prior to the performance start time. A cash bar will be available for those 21+.
In the case of inclement weather, the show will go on! We’ll move the artists and audiences inside the house, and pivot to a hybrid livestreamed and in-person audience format. All decisions regarding inclement weather plans will be made no later than 2 hours prior to the performance, which will be shared via email and on our social media pages.
- Audience members who wish to attend the event inside the House will be required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination when checking in to the performance or proof of a negative COVID-19 test performed within the previous 72 hours prior to entry, as well as wear a mask while in attendance.
- Should the event be moved indoors, ticket-holders will also be given the opportunity to view the concert from home via private livestream link which will be emailed to them at the email address on their ticket order between 30 minutes and 1 hour prior to show time.
NOTE: Since we have this livestreaming option for our audiences (and the artists we engage), there will be no refunds or exchanges for The Lot Lounge ticket purchases this summer. Thank you for your support and understanding as we work to find innovative ways to continue connecting artists and audiences!
