The day after Thanksgiving.  You're tired after the Thanksgiving feast.  Your family drove you a little crazy.  You were startled by the frenzy of the Black Friday shoppers of both the stores and the internet.  You can't take it anymore.  You have to get out of the house. You're looking for a place to go where you can let loose.

 

The Bare Hambones have you covered.  Get over to Old Towne Pub.  Enjoy a beer and some live music.  We go on at 8:30pm.

A Crowd for Silvie - 8:30pm
1902 W. Irving Park Rd.
Chicago, IL 60613
773.871.6239

Silvie likes local bands.  We've been there on nights where we didn't bring big crowds so she didn't even make enough money to pay us.  A lot of bar owners get mad about a situation like that.  But not Silvie.  At the end of the night, she has bought us a drink, told us how good the band is and said we can come back and play any time.  Then we'll sit around and laugh as she tells us stories about buying the bar 40 years ago.  So we want to bring a nice crowd for her.

To that end, we are announcing a REUNION show with THE PSYCHOBILLY KADILLAKS.  For the first time in about 7 years, The Kadillaks are joining us to play a public performance.  Add local opener Alex Reindl and a band from Indiana with a strong local presence called Carmichael, and we're ready to pack the place for an owner that likes and supports local musicians.

So let's support her back and fill the place on Saturday, May 20th.
