This Week at the Hideout!

Hello friends!

This week at the Hideout holds our biggest event of the year so excitement is in the air!  We are of course alluding to the 17th Annual Hideout Block Party/A.V. Fest.  It’s the no-stress fest which is the best.  We haveYoung the Giant, Neko Case, Mavis Staples, The Hold Steady, Superchunk, The Walkmen, Jon Langfordand many many more here this weekend.  Two-day and single-day passes are still available.  Get them now because we might run out soon!  We love to see all of the Hideout family at the fest and do not want to miss seeing you so come on out!

Tonight we have the second to last Veggie Bingo.  Annie Coleman & Janet Ecklebarger are calling and North Lawndale Greening Committee gets the proceeds.  We can’t believe there is only one left after this!  The summer most be almost over.

Following bingo, the Immediate Sound Series presents Wilkerson, Jr./Baker/Sandstrom/Hunt.  We have Ed Wilkerson, Jr. on reeds, Jim Baker on keyboards, Brian Sandstrom on bass & guitar and Steve Hunt on drums for two sets of free jazz.

Thursday we are closed in preparation for

Friday and Saturday’s Hideout Block Party!

Sunday and Monday we are closed for exhaustion.

Back on Tuesday, Outloud Chicago and In Our Words present: Word is Out, a reading series of queers and company telling their stories.  This one’s for the fans! We will be hearing stories from fans about their favorite characters and stories with the theme Fan Fic. Whether it’s a story about fandom or our personal stories based upon popular culture entertainment, writers will put themselves into their favorite stories.

Later on Tuesday, we have the second night of Rick Rizzo‘s Tuesday Night Residency where he will be joined by Janet Bean and form the Eleventh Dream Duo.  This is an electric set with Janet on the drums and Rick on guitar.  This will be a very cool set for Eleventh Dream Day fans and newcomers alike.

That is all!  See you at the Block Party!  We’ll be there.
