The Hideout Brings Chicago to D.C.

The Hideout is bringing Chicago musicians to Washington, D.C., on the eve of the inauguration. The Black Cat will be the site for “The Big Shoulders Ball: Chicago Celebrates Change." Performers will be a spectacle of Chicagoans: Tortoise, the Waco Brothers, Eleventh Dream Day, Andrew Bird, Jon Langford, Sally Timms, David “Honeyboy" Edwards, Ken Vandermark, Freakwater, Icy Demons and Judson Claiborne. Tickets are $50, but seeing Vandermark and Tortoise on the same bill should give the illusion of stretching that dollar nicely. It appears that Andrew Bird will headline.

Back in April, The Hideout hosted Fight the Big Bull and Vandermark's joint performance.

It's not in Richmond, but neither is the inauguration.
