It is an ongoing collaborative project between disabled and non-disabled artists in the Chicago area, based out of the Arts of Life community of artists. Budway Farris and The Arts of Life Band member Ricky Canning open!
Thursday we have Terriers. Terriers are a five-piece band with a love of four-part vocal harmonies. They often cross genre boundaries, playing a blend of power-pop, country, and jazz. Tonight is also the record releaseparty for Dann Morr. Dann Morr, songwriter and sideman, steps out with his debut album ‘Shouting Into the Wind’, a collection of indie rock gems that deftly incorporates the best parts of his long tenure in the Chicago music scene.

Friday our early show is The 53rd Ward: After Dark. Fictional alderman Ed Bus brings “53rd Ward: After Dark” to the Hideout. This part late-night talk show, part variety show, part community meeting is just what Chicago ordered. Featuring live music, sketches, interviews and shenanigans, the Alderman is back and stronger than ever. Hell, he may even run for mayor…again.
Later, Chrip Radio hosts a benefit by throwing a soul party with The Right Now and Get Up with the Get Downs. It will be a night of dancing, fantastic singing and great bands helping out one of Chicago’s best free radio services.
Saturday we are closed for a private event.
But we open back up at eleven-thirty for our Saturday dance party with DJ Naomi Wallace on the turntables spinning 1960’s and 70’s funk & soul and remotely funky tunes from other bins.
