The Dead Milkmen



Laurel Hill East

Born screaming at inanimate objects in 1983, Philadelphia’s legendary punk darlings The Dead Milkmen will return to Laurel Hill East this summer with smirk-riddled cult favorites and subversive fun. The graveyard show will open with a performance by The Ire, a West Philly post-punk four-piece sharing stories of power and powerlessness through melodic, goth-tinged death rock.

All Ages | Youth under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Doors and registration open at 6:00PM at the South Gate. You must present your ticket to be scanned in order to enter the cemetery. Beware of purchasing tickets anywhere other than this website to avoid re-sold duplicates.

Beer, wine, water, and soda will be available at a donation-based bar. Picnics and dogs on leashes are permitted. Please BYO blankets or lawn chairs.

Rain Date: July 8
