Thank you all who came out to the Hideout Block Party this past weekend. It was an amazing weekend and a big part of what makes it so special is seeing all of our Hideout family there. We hope you had a grand time!
Autumn is almost here and we keep chugging along. Now to this week’s events
Tonight we have the last Veggie Bingo. It looks a little drizzly out there but don’t let it deter you. This will be a big night with great prizes. The grill will be in full effect, Miss Mia & Ratso will be calling, and we’ll all be toasting to another great bingo season!
Following bingo, the Immediate Sound Series presents Vandermark/Lonberg-Holm. Solo sets from Ken Vandermark on the reeds and Fred Longberg-Holm on cello & guitar. They come together for the second set.
Thursday, Bring Your Own Beard to a benefit show brought to us by Septembeard for prostate cancer research. Free dinner is provided by Bacino’s and the first 50 people to bring their own beard get a free t-shirt! The indie rock of Bully in the Hallway is playing along with Tony Rogers and Daytonics.
Friday, we have the improvised musical gameshow Shame That Tune with hosts Brian Costello and Abraham Levitan. If you’ve never been its a favorite of the Hideout’s and a great amount of laughs for your buck.
Later, we get a little down and dirty with an all Nashville-based lineup including Sarah Potenza & the Tall Boys. Also performing are Derek Hoke and Kevin Gordon. You won’t wanna miss this rare opportunity to see these Nashville artists get down and dirty with soul, country and rock and roll as only Tennessee can do.
Saturday, we have Panoramic & True. Formed by songwriter John Lennox after cutting his teeth in Montreal’s mid-2000 scene, Chicago’s Panoramic & True deals a heavy and often orchestrated brand of pop Mooner andSpaces of Disappearance open for a fun and troubling night of dance-punk influenced electronica.
Dance Party this week is the retro beats of The Malt Shop.
Sunday, in conjunction with Chicago World Music Festival we have a free show at 6pm with Mamadou Kellyfrom Mali, Leila Gobi from Meneka, and Cedric Watson and Sidi Toure. A wonderful blend of of artists dabbling with the blues and the influences of their own native countries, this will be a special one.
Monday, Illinois Unites is hosting Food-Raiser for Freedom. Join the celebration to generate awareness, raise money and recruit volunteers for the campaign to give gay and lesbian committed couples the freedom to marry in Illinois. Guest DJs Steve Albini (Shellac), Tim Mazurek (Lottie + Doof), Rob Miller (Bloodshot Records), Lea Tshilds (Lula, Nightwood) with a cakewalk, food trucks & more.
