One of Philly's beloved venues just made a big announcement: they're changing it's name...for a limited time at least!
Yup, MilkBoy won't be referred to by that name and it's for a great reason!
For a few weeks in March, (Monday, March 4, through Friday, March 15) all the MilkBoy locations will instead be called MilkGirl! Why? To celebrate and support women in music. LOVE it!
This will include all sorts of special events including karaoke and stand-up comedy benefitting the nonprofit organization Girls Behind the Rock Show.
Take a look at the different events planned, as well as the temporary new logo:
