The Windy City Rollers. Click for ticket information

My friend (and former Kennett Brothers bandmate) Andy Leach and I will be accompanying Stacey Earley Saturday night (September 25), when she sings the national anthem before the Windy City Rollers bout at the UIC Pavillion. Stacey is a former member of said Rollers, and it should be blast.

Did I mention free beer?

Tangleweed w/ Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers at Double Door

By Scott. Filed under: TweedBlog.

Tangleweed will kick off a show with Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers  and Velcro Lewis  at The Double Door on Friday Nov. 21. 

This will be our first-ever Double Door appearance – another step in our never-ending quest to play every known venue in Chicago.

Some may recall that we played with Th’ Shack Shakers at the Abbey Pub a few years ago, at which we released our first cd, Just a Spoonful (and Other Folk Songs of Rural Cook County).  They put on a helluva show and are highly recommended for fans of blast-off rockabilly fire and brimstone.  

Big thanks once again to Amy Butterer and the Billions Corporation for inviting us onto this bill. 

We’ll go on at 9:00 pm sharp before racing over to the Charleston to play three more sets starting at 10:00, followed by our string of Balcony Pop-Up Sets at the Chicago Bluegrass and Blues Fest at the Congress Theatre on Sat. 11/22. 

Should be a helluva weekend!  We hope to see you somewhere amidst all the action.
