David Uosikkinen of the Hooters and his band, In The Pocket return to the Ardmore Music Hall on Saturday, March 28th to celebrate the release of their new song, Punk Rock Girl.
Originally recorded by The Dead Milkmen in 1988, ITP’s version features Richard Bush (The A’s) on lead vocals, Tommy Conwell (The Young Rumblers) on guitar, Pete Donnelly (Figgs/NRBQ/Shelby Lynne) on bass, William Wittman (Cyndi Lauper) on guitar, Rob Hyman (The Hooters) on melodica, Eric Bazilian (The Hooters) on hurdy-gurdy, and of course David Uosikkinen (The Hooters) on drums.
“This project would be incomplete without a song from The Dead Milkmen,” explains David Uosikkinen. “They are Philly music royalty in my eyes!”
The show at the Ardmore Music Hall will feature Uosikkinen’s revolving lineup of Philadelphia’s most celebrated musicians. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door, or $50 for VIP tickets (includes 7:00pm buffet dinner and meet & greet with band members). Doors open at 8:00pm. Showtime is 9:00pm.

About the project:
The ambitious and always musically tasty In The Pocket project, brings together all-star Philly musicians to cover classic Philadelphia tunes. The Hooters’ David Uosikkinen revisits songs that were either recorded in Philadelphia or written and performed by Philadelphians. These essential songs feature a rotating line up of Philly’s most celebrated musicians. Songs are available for download at songsinthepocket.org. A video documentary by award winning producer/director Steve Acito of BlueWire Media accompanies each single.
