Hey Hey Everyone,
We’ve got an action packed week here, but before we get into it there’s a ton of awesome shows that just got listed.
Friday we start the night off with the always hilarious Shame That Tune!
Later in the evening is a banging hip-hop show with Psalm One, Cutz on Cuts, ProbCause, and E Brown andtickets are moving fast so be sure to buy them in advance.
Saturday starting at 3pm and going until 2am — don’t forget about daylight savings! — is The Hideout’s Annual SXSW Send Off Party! 10 Chicago bands that are headed to Austin for SXSW hit the stage for an all-day showcase with all of the proceeds going to their respective treks down to the lone star state. There’s been loads of generous donations made by Goose Island, Hob Nob Wine, Cushe Shoes, Intelligentsia Coffee, Big Star, KIND Bars, and SIR. Below is the band schedule and please spread the good word to help pack the place all day and night for these fantastic bands!

Sunday is the monthly Kind of Blue Standup Comedy Series. March features Marty DeRosa, Candy Lawrence, Dan Friesen, and host Joe McAdam.
Monday is a sold out record release party for Wild Belle. Their new album Isles on Columbia Records drops Tuesday! It is highly unlikely that we will have any tickets at the door, but please track our Facebook and Twitter feed in case that changes.
Tuesday is the 2nd week of Bobby Conn and Monica Boubou’s month long residency. This time around the theme is: musicals. It will feature The Hairies: Ronnie Kuller (keyboards), Paul Brannon (drums), and Paul Parts (bass). This is cheating a bit, because by musicals I really just mean HAIR – The American Tribal Love Rock Musical. In August 2012 we performed as the band in the Hideout production of HAIR, and we had so much fun I wanted to do it again with some special favorite tunes. No, we will not be playing the whole thing, or even Aquarius, but the deep, deep cuts like “Great God Of Power” and “Dead End” . Plus, the most Broadway damaged tunes off of 2007’s “King For A Day”. Wear a home made medallion.
Wednesday is another Soup & Bread with the theme of Noodles, Dumpling, and Kreplach.
Later that evening the Immediate Sound Series presents two sets by Dave Rempis / Mars Williams / Harrison Bankhead / Hamid Drake.
See you soon,
