The ninth season of Songbird—the local singing competition to find the best crooner in Philly—kicks off this week in a brand new location. It’s moving from its original home at Tabu Lounge and Sports Bar in the Gayborhood to Northern Liberties’ hip, membership-based watering hole and hangout Ruba Club . The new season starts September 20 and happens the same time every Wednesday until December 20. The contest is 14 weeks long, features 15 singers and will play out like all your favorite singing competitions on TV: contestants sing each week—usually to some kind of theme—face critiques by a panel of local judges and then get eliminated, one by one, until a winner is left standing. That winner gets $2,000.
