Hot Fun In The Summertime!

Independence Tap

3932 W Irving Park Rd

Friday, July 9

7:30 PM

As this shot of an alley in 1930 shows, we Chicagoans are used to getting together with friends and making our own fun with whatever is handy.

So in that spirit we convene again for our 2nd live Hootenanny. The usual array of fine musicians, comics, poets, storytellers, and whatever else comes through the door will be on hand, plus the fine folks who come to witness the spectacle.

And don’t forget Independence Tap’s excellent array of reasonably priced ales and spirits. Add it all up and it is one smoldering good time!!!

Slide into Summer Fun!!!

Independence Tap is a great space and this night is perfect for working out new material and expanding horizons as an Artist/Performer.

When we host Open Stages we create an atmosphere of respect for all genres of performance where Artists can feel safe and secure. [No stylistic cliquishness OR DISRESPECT allowed!]

Our greatest joy comes from seeing someone perform for the first time or watching an Artist try out a new genre: a Musician doing Storytelling, a Storyteller doing Stand-Up, a Poet playing Music, a Stand-Up reading a poem…

The Place Where The Boundaries Meet & Overlap Is Where True Magic Happens.

And there is nothing like the feeling of opening a door into a new room in the mansion of your soul— SO COME ON DOWN & GO ON UP!!!

And the rest is history…
