New Belgium Brewery: Lost In The Woods – Chicago

Join us this February in celebrating the release of two beloved sour beer vintages: La Folie, the award-winning sour brown ale that launched New Belgium’s wood beer program back in 1997, and Transatlantique Kriek, a wood-aged sour cherry ale brewed in collaboration with Belgium’s Oud Beersel. New Belgium’s Sour Beer program is one of the first and the largest in the United States. La Folie initially rolled out in 1997 with a gold medal at GABF and has since been an anchor for our Sour Beer Program. Every year, Eric Salazar, our Wood Cellar Manager, and Lauren Salazar, our Sour Beer Blender, coordinate a blending of various foeders to make a 100% sour brown ale. Each Year is different, ages well, and will leave you puckering for more. Tickets: CLICK HERE When From: Feb 6, 2016, 05:00 PM To: Feb 6, 2016, 08:00 PM Where Studio Monarchy at 656 W Hubbard St, Chicago, Illinois United States

Grandbar Whiskey Lounge

Hand Practices and our pals in Wooden Rings will be representing Chicago at GrandBar on Friday, October 2nd at probably sometime around 8:00pm in a rock and roll show featuring touring bands from each coast. In one corner, from San Francisco, weighing in at 475 lbs, EagleWolfSnake and in the other, from NYC, at a combined weight of 625 lbs, Wake the Sun. This show may or may not be sponsored by Jameson. We don’t know. That might mean there will be drink specials, but if not, Grandbar’s drink prices are as reasonable as their event calendar is mysterious- but hey, that’s rock and roll, right? But bring money because it’ll cost something, and if that something is not a single digit number, I will eat my hat. Going out on a limb, I’d say $7.00 for the east, west, and third coast entertainment. Pretty good deal woodenringsmusic.com

Bones Jugs N Harmony is like Frank Zappa un in some Spike Jones, spiced with Looney Tunes playing Nintendo. It’s a ragtime-jugband-calypso-shake-up from Urbana, IL. Wackadoodles.

Openning we have the Kinder Sister. You can hear their vocal amazingness at thekindredsisters.com Kindred+(12+of+21)

Wooden Rings, Honey Watts, Wild Orphan

We are very excited to play a show with the very talented Honey Watts, a very soulful outfit from Philly. Think Americana and ambient folk dripping with honey.

The other voice for the evening, Wild Orphan, is a poet wielding rich imagery in beautiful lyrical puzzles. Taste one that resonates with our long-upcoming EPs, Heliocentric I & II.

“When darkness

takes

what the light’s

produced

the sun

still outshines

the moon

Yes, the sun

still outshines

the

moon.”-Wild Orphan

See you on Sunday 12 July 2015 from 7:00pm-10:00pm It’s $8:00 and you want to RSVP by phone at 773.465.9801

Other Info
Acoustic. Intimate. Tipsy.

JONNY DRAKE (Jon Drake & The Shakes)
Jonny's unique banjo and acoustic focused neo-folk sound recalls that of Roy Orbison, Neil Young, Grandaddy, Kurt Vile, and at times The National. Simple and dark, analog and tape driven, the new material is hypnotic and addictive. Drake will be joined by Ann Marie Meyers and Christine Chung Kenny on vocals as well as Daniel Villarreal (Jaime Rojo, Brother George, Amy Saraiya & The Outcome) on cajon.

"[Drake's] fist single, "Lies For No One", shows off the strengths of simplicity in its ability to get into your head and stay there." -Midwest Action

WOODEN RINGS
[Wooden Rings] approaches the genre of acoustic chamber pop with a magazine of powerful songs that keep you listening. Songwriter Ramah D. Jihan Malebranche will be performing solo, with a great deal of new material to share.

“Wooden Rings, an eclectic and ambitious ensemble from Chicago, have managed to encapsulate a sound so uniquely diverse, it quickly finds roots in the hearts of any honest music fan. Although their sound is self-described as “acoustic chamber pop,” the amount of honesty and emotion expelled through their music creates such a direct connection to the listener that it’s as if their songs were being written just for you.”-Old Town School of Folk Music
