R. Mackenzie Lewis's Lounge Lizard Bingo
with special guest Curt Waugh
Friday, June 25th @ 8 PM
Lounge Lizard Bingo, 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.
Fast forward more than a year later and Lounge Lizard Bingo comes to audiences live and in person at the Kerrytown Concert House! Hosted by its creator, the in-person show will continue to have the specially designed digital game card that audiences can access on their phones throughout the show which will allow them to participate in trivia, earn points, 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 join R. MacKenzie Lewis in singing a wide variety of favorite songs from Billy Joel, Prince, Huey Lewis, The Beatles, Elton John, the Chairman of the Board, and more accompanied by general mischievousness, bingo, trivia, all while trying not to get into too much trouble. www.LoungeLizardBingo.com
*The Lot Lounge is an in-person event venue outside in our back parking lot. If this event needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather, the show will go on for you at home! We’ll move the artists inside and pivot to a livestreamed concert on the same date and time at a private link that will be shared only with ticket holders. All decisions regarding inclement weather cancellations will be made no later than 2 hours prior to the performance, at which point all ticket holders will be notified by email about the cancellation with instructions for accessing the private livestream.
PLEASE 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!
