The Interview Show, held at the Hideout, features guests from every walk of life — musicians, authors, comedians, community activists, chefs, CEOs, etc., both local and passing through town — sharing their world views and talents in a laid-back, intimate setting.
The Girl Talk
The Girl Talk
The Girl Talk is a monthly show at The Hideout featuring powerful and influential Chicago women you should know. Each month, we tackle an issue facing our city, state and country and learn from the women working to make things better.
First Tuesdays with Mick & Ben
First Tuesdays with Mick & Ben
First Tuesdays is a monthly political talk show at the Hideout bar, hosted by Mick Dumke & Ben Joravsky. With the help of guests–elected officials, union leaders, activists, and other journalists–Mick & Ben aim to explain how the city, state, country and universe really works.

It all started like this: Pharaoh’s heart became hard, and he would not listen to them…. Wait–wrong story.

Not long ago, Tim Tuten, co-owner of the Hideout, had a moment of inspiration. Don’t laugh–it’s been known to happen.

Shortly before he led a room of strangers in a rousing karaoke version of Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long (All Night),” Tuten blurted out to Mick that he and Ben should start holding a live discussion about politics: “We’ll call it First Tuesdays–cause it’ll be on the first Tuesday of every month.”

When Tim was reminded of this after the beer wore off, he still thought it was a fine idea. He offered to let Mick & Ben hold the event at the Hideout. They wholeheartedly agreed. And the rest is history…

Their first show, in April 2014, featured Alderman Proco Joe Moreno, a mayoral ally; Alderman Scott Waguespack, a mayoral critic; and former alderman Richard Mell, who proudly explained how he’d once controlled 1,000 patronage jobs, some of which required work.

Since then, our guests have included aldermen, state legislators, county officials, journalists, mayoral candidates, and union leaders. They have offered their take on who holds power around here, where your tax money’s disappearing to, what’s happening in the school system, and why on earth we haven’t legalized marijuana–among other topics.

Mick & Ben are firmly committed to occasionally taking names and kicking ass, while having fun in the process. They want you to join them on the first Tuesday of next month. And the month after that.
Funny Ha Ha
Funny Ha Ha
A reading in a bar, where all the pieces are funny (or they're meant to be, anyway). Like a standup show but without a cover charge, drink minimum, and the performers read stories or use powerpoint or show film instead of do routines. A showcase for Chicago's smartest, most talented, cleverest folk. Always a good time with lots of smart, supportive, looking-to-have fun people in the world-famous Hideout. Plus, proceeds benefit Sit Stay Read, which teaches children to read by having them read aloud to dogs. Come on.

Hosted by Claire Zulkey. Proceeds benefit Sit Stay Read.
Advance Base
Advance Base
Advance Base is new music by Casiotone for the Painfully Alone mastermind Owen Ashworth. Under his new moniker, Ashworth conjures dreamy waltzes, heavy-hearted ballads & electropop-styled torch songs from antiquated instruments such as Rhodes electric pianos, Omnichords, Wurlitzer rhythm boxes, & samplers. Advance Base songs deal with deceased racehorses, estranged siblings, hard feelings, & all things long lost. A Shut-In's Prayer, the debut album from Advance Base, was number 19 on MOJO Magazine's Best Albums of 2012 list.
The World Is In A Bad Fix Everywhere, an EP of early 20th century gospel music composed by Washington Phillips, was released June 25, 2013. The Chicago Reader included The World Is In A Bad Fix Everywhere on its Best of Chicago 2013 list. An EP of Magnetic Fields covers called Tomorrow's Homes Today was released later that year as a limited edition cassette, & went out of print almost immediately.
Advance Base released a digital mixtape of compilation tracks & rarities called Plastic Owen Band on November 3, 2014. Nephew in the Wild, a new album of original material, was released August 21, 2015 by Orindal (US/AQ) & Tomlab (EU/UK). PopMatters named Nephew in the Wild the #1 Indie Pop album of 2015.
