Hood Smoke – “Bryan Doherty bends the bass into something rarely heard, but entirely worth the price of admission.” So says All Music Guide, and they’re right: Much like Doherty’s brilliant bass playing, his band Hood Smoke blends soul and pop a la Rufus, David Byrne and The Band. Hood Smoke’s line-up reads like a “who’s who” of Chicago music masters (Bryan Doherty, Sarah Marie Young, Michael Caskey, Rob Clearfield, Chris Siebold, Andrew Toombs), all of whom have played with everyone from Quincy Jones to Koko Taylor to Steve Coleman and Howard Levy. Rising star Sarah Marie Young’s voice will no doubt turn heads with its uncanny combination of grit and precision. Her voice and her bandmates’ undeniable chops make Hood Smoke’s album, Laid Up In Ordinary, a must-hear release of 2013.
miss remember - formerly known as treehouse, miss remember is a band striving to simply write good songs. this takes careful time…trials and tribulations. back for a second chapter, the sound has evolved away from previous acoustic roots into a, yet, truer amalgamation of the influences of each member.

WICKER PARK, WEDNESDAY, OCT 23rd 7-9PM. At 9600 feet above sea level, Breckenridge Distillery of Colorado is the World’s Highest Distillery. (Jerry’s is Chicago’s highest beer bar.) This is not what makes Breckenridge Distillery special, but making some of the world’s best distilled spirits is what they are all about. Their bourbon was recently awarded a Gold Medal in the International Wine and Spirits Competition in the UK. Stop by and sample some of their spirits and see what real “high” life is all about.

WICKER PARK, THURS, OCT 17th. Jerry’s (who else?) will host Dogfish Head’s Midwest release of American Beauty, the next of their music series, a liquid homage to the Grateful Dead’s classic 1970 release. In addition to American Beauty, Jerry’s will offer many other Dogfish drafts including some rare, plus the Third Coast String Band will play the ‘American Beauty’ album in it’s entirety. Oh, and Sam Calagione will be in attendance. If we could only pull this off every night…
Here’s is an early peek at the beer: http://www.dogfish.com/brews-spirits/the-brews/brewpub-exclusives/american-beauty-sneak-peek.htm.

WICKER PARK, TUESDAY, OCT 15TH, 7pm
Delicious Belgian style beer brewed right in our backyard at Une Année Brewery. We have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this new Chicago brewery that has made its’ home just over a mile south of us. And our first few tastes have lived up to, and even surpassed, everything we’d hoped for. We’re tapping the first 5 beers from our new neighbors, and we’d love to have our other neighbors, new and old, on hand for the party.
