St Patrick's Day - or - Get Off Your Ass And Drink With Me

Dear Friends, Lovers, Poets, and Scallywags.

The Irish season is upon us and soon thrill seeking boozehounds and cross-eyed stumblers will take to the streets to watch a river turn green and drink God knows how many rounds of Guinness. It is this time of year that One Of The Girls, Chicago finest Blue-Irish-Folk-Grass Band, arise from the dead, put aside any hopes of having a social life, and book show after show after show for your entertainment. We have dusted off the instruments, we have dusted off the vocal chords, we have dusted off our livers and are about to embark on 7 drunken nights of fun, folk, and formaldehyde. Join us, with all the new material we have been putting together, even if you are a fan from the street corner days, you will be surprised at just how high that Baptist minister can sing. Cheers!

Tuesday, 3/10 – Cubby Bear – 1059 W. Addison St. - 9:30 pm - NO COVER.
This is just a taste of what’s to come, don’t count on this show running more than 15 minutes. None the less, it will be a 15 minutes you never forget. Come support The Girls in a new venue!

Thrusday, 3/12 – Lilly's Bar – 2513 N. Lincoln Ave. – 10pm – NO COVER
One of the Girls will be playing with the Million Dollar Dogs, which is the cast of the hit musical Million Dollar Quartet. Our own Sean Sullivan will be staring as Johnny Cash that night at the Apollo Theater, so take a double dose of Sean’s manliness.

Friday, 3/13 – Duke’s Bar - 6920 N. Glenwood Ave. – 9:30-ish – NO COVER
The happiest dive bar in town. Dukes offers good drinks, interesting conversations with crack heads and one of the friendliest bar owners in Chicago. This is a must see event and the room is small so get to the bar early and often.

Saturday, 3/14 – Rock Bottom Brewery - 1 W. Grand Ave. – 11am – 2pm – NO COVER
We will be playing inside a nice warm pub while hordes of drunk people watch a parade full of drunk people outside in the cold. Come in, warm up, dance a jig, and have a beer before noon, ya nancy.

Monday, 3/16 – Red Line Tap - 7006 N. Glenwood Ave. – 9-ish – NO COVER
Twas the night before Saint Patties, and we will rip the walls off the Red Line. Another Roger’s Park gem. Don’t miss it!

Tuesday, 3/17 – SAINT PACTRICK’S DAY – The Spot - 4437 N. Broadway - $$???$$
With an Irish beer tasting and loads of ways to get into the spirit of being Irish for a day, the Spot is the Spot for this years St. Patrick’s day event. Bring a friend, bring some potatoes, bring a donkey, who cares! If you feel so inclined, I bet you could join the girls for some corned beef and cabbage. To be sure, to be sure!
