|NewcityMusic Music 45: Who rocks Chicago’s music world names Hideout’s Tim & Katie Tuten at #16 for 2008!
16 ~ Tim & Katie Tuten ~ Owners, Hideout
“When you think things are great, they can get better,” Tim Tuten says. “It’s very weird. The rest of the country has an economic crisis, and the wars are going on, but actually 2008 was really awesome for us.” With each passing year Hideout – baby of the Tutens and the Hinchsliff twins – regularly boosts its national profile, often being cited as one of the best bars in America. Check it: the annual Hideout Block Party in September is always a resounding success, each year better than the last, rising star Andrew Bird continually brings attention to the club, recently filming a new music video for “Fitz and the Dizzyspells” there, and the Tutens bussed eighty people to D.C. to celebrate Obama’s inauguration with the Big Shoulders Ball, at which Bird, along with several other local musicians, performed.
