Shmitten Kitten & Popped! Present Mix Tape Speed Dating Parties

We have partnered up with the fine people at Popped! and we are very proud to announce that we will be throwing four Mix Tape Speed Dating parties this fall at some of the best bars and restaurants around Philadelphia. If you had floppy '90s hair while you listened to it, we're gonna speed date to it.

Here's how it works: when you pre-register, you can suggest songs to play on the night you will attend. So, in effect, we will create a mix tape of all of the songs that you want to hear in the given genre of the night. Have you always wanted to speed date to Braid? or Jawbreaker? Or Superchunk? Make it happen! At the very least, you'll get the chance to meet people who have similar tastes in music, which is rad.

All of the parties start at 7pm. Speed dating starts at 8pm SHARP. Here is the schedule:

Dates and Venues:
Thursday, September 10th - Khyber
Soundtrack: '90s Alternative
i.e. Dinosaur Jr., Teenage Fanclub, Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth, Pixies, Weezer, etc.

Thursday, September 24th - Dos Segundos
Soundtrack: '90s Emo/Pop Punk
i.e. Get Up Kids, Promise Ring, Lifetime, Avail, Jawbreaker, Braid, Fugazi, Descendents, Rainer Maria, etc.

Thursday, October 8th - The Cantina
Soundtrack: '90s Indie
i.e. Superchunk, Pavement, Stone Roses, Guided by Voices, PJ Harvey, My Bloody Valentine, Superdrag, etc.

Thursday, October 22nd - Royal Tavern
Soundtrack: '90s Grunge
Like you don't know what grunge is! Let's just say that the Singles soundtrack WILL make an appearance.

When:
7pm - 9pm.
There will be drink specials and speed dating starts at 8pm sharp!

Cost:
$5 if you pre-register. $8 if you don't.
All money will be due at the event and it's cash only.

Why pre-register?
Your pre-registration will be good for one free drink at the event. Yup, it costs $5 to attend and your first drink is on us. Pretty sweet, right? And, one lucky couple will win a gift certificate to Cantina too. You could meet the person of your dreams AND have your first date on us. That's just swell.

Please join us. It's gonna be soooo insanely fun. Well, as much fun as quickly meeting a bunch of strangers who share a penchant for Pavement can be.

This is such a great idea. I'm going to awkward the roof off of the Cantina.

Yay! It's official!

Dustin said...

Wha~? No Boyz II Men night? Boo!

Anna said...

How could we have a Boyz II Men night? Is their catalog that deep?

Jon K said...

East Coast Family party. If we run out of music, just put Poison by Bel Biv Devoe on repeat. I'd be cool with that.

curse you, thursday night classes!!!

Fritsky said...

This is going to be so much fun! What if we combined Boyz II Men, Bel Biv AND New Edition for a play list?

Jon K said...

Fritsky's got a point. It's physically impossible not to feel a special bond with someone if Candy Girl is playing.

That's just science.
