On May 27th, “The Soundtrack Series” (a live storytelling event), will be coming to Philadelphia for the first time! Created and hosted by Dana Rossi, this Philadelphia event will feature area writers and performers, who have been asked to pick a song, and then tell the “hilarious or heartbreaking memory that they always revisit whenever they hear that song–proving how often music underscores the biggest, most exciting, or most humiliating moments of our lives”.

The event is being held at L’Etage, located at 624 S. 6th Street in Philadelphia. Doors open at 7:30 pm, and the stories begin at 8:00 pm. Tickets are $10. Below is a list of the Philadelphia-area performers and the songs they have chosen:

Maria Raha
(Cinderella’s Big Score: Women of the Punk and Indie Underground)
I’m Still Standing/Elton John

R. Eric Thomas
