July 28th, 2016 - Devin Frank Vanishing Blues Band \\ Faintlife || Steven Deeds // Neatly Knotted

 

City slickers and country bumpkins! Savory entres and sweet deserts of all varieties! By-golly, do we have an evening in store for you! Devin Frank Vanishing Blues Band joins us from Columbia, MO. Also from Missouri, Steven Deeds returns from St. Louis, MO. Chicago locals Faintlife and Neatly Knotted round out what is sure to be a fun evening.

Louder House turns 100 years old next Thursday (!!!!!!!) This beautiful old house was built in 1916, a time when a heat wave was sweeping the nation and people were irrationally and disproportionately afraid of sharks. The first birth control center opened in America. Woodrow Wilson, a progressive, was re-elected to his second term as president of these great United States and this was the most popular song at the time. We're 100 years later and now is the time for a special evening full of drone, rock and roll, tangential energies, magical incantations and sacred, forgotten dancing! It's a night of nostalgia, reunions and hopeful optimism. Won't you join us?!

Our typical backyard fire will be blazing, weather providing. Please BYOB.

Peggy Tenderass is a Chicago singer & songwriter.
Who is she? She's a washed up lounge singer who breeds overpriced cats. BUT, I have heard she is sweet. She is saucy. She is the whiskey in your glass. She's a little R&B with a touch of jazzy class. She'll get your toes a tappin like like a shot of giggle gas.
