The Black Lillies Live at WUTK “HARD TO PLEASE”

“Fresh off a whirlwind year that has seen the band touring internationally as well as from coast to coast in the U.S., The Black Lillies return home for a two-night run at their favorite venue in the country. The spectacular acoustics and intimate setting of the Bijou set the tone for an unforgettable end to 2017. On Saturday, December 30 you’ll experience them as you never have before, as a roulette wheel takes center stage and the songs are left up to chance in a loose, interactive and laid-back show ’ where not even the band knows what songs will be played! And then on December 31, The Black Lillies will ring in the New Year with an electrified performance of fan favorites and brand new tunes, with a few surprises thrown in for good measure. If you’re still standing after all of that, join the guys on New Year’s Day for the 2nd Annual Hangover Bowl ’ a bowling party with the band at downtown’s Maple Hall. A limited number of Gold Passes will give you access to both shows plus the Hangover Bowl. On New Year’s, it’s never wrong to bet it all on Black!” – Bijou Theatre

Saturday, December 30, 2017, the band will perform with The War & Treaty at the Rock & Roulette show at the Bijou Theatre. Get tickets, here!

Sunday, December 31, the Black Lillies will hold a New Year’s Eve Party at the Bijou Theatre. Get tickets, here!

Mon. January 1st at bowling brunch with The Black Lillies !!!
