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. (Courtesy of Chicago Tribune
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.
