This Week at the Hideout

Celebrate America at the Hideout this week!
Tonight we kick things off with the two most American things, other then apple pie and tax evasion, Bingo and hot dogs!  It’s Veggie Bingo once again, so come on out and win!
Later Immediate Sound Series presents bassoonist Dana Jessen for the first set and will later be joined by Jeff Kimmel on bass clarinet, Fred LonbergHolmon cello, and Mike Reed on drums.
We are being true lazy Americans and shutting our doors on the 4th.  Get to a BBQ y’all!
On Friday our early show is the rusty sounds and banjo stomps of Woodrow Hart & the Haymakers.  Joining them is singer-songwriter Gar Clemens.
Late show starting at 10:00 is Cameron Esposito.  A beloved Chicago comic, who has taken her side-mullet to Los Angeles, returns to make us laugh with her Freedom Fest.  Comedian Rhea Butcher is also onboard!  Both of these fine comics are tearing up the scene in LA, so this is a great opportunity to hang out with them!
Saturday we get a the glam-punk of Absolutely Not, the all-girl power punk pop of Swimsuit Addition, the misbehaving rock of Strychnine and the dark emotional landscapes of Che Arthur.  With 4 bands on this bill this will be a fast moving night that will pound the dust off of our stuffed fishes in the back room. Loud. Fun. Rock
DANCE PARTY is the beloved queer collective Chances Dances!
We’re closed on Sunday.
Monday we have Robbie Fulks who is traversing George Jones’s career.  Tonight he is focusing on the duets and is joined by Jodee Lewis, Rita Ruby, andBethany Thomas.
Tuesday early we have the Third Coast Listening Room: Stories of Internetness.  You know that “global system of interconnected computer networks” you spend so much time on/in/with? Come out for an evening of stories – of privacy, immortality and seduction, to name a few – about this mighty force in our lives, with input from one of the Internet’s smartest (and funniest) users, Harper Reed.
Later on Tuesday is the second night of Abraham Levitan’s month long residency.  Tonight he performs Improvised Operettas.  To see Abraham improvise must have been close to what it was like watching Einstein think, but funnier.
Love is love
