Likely the rockingest Tuesday evening DeKalb has ever seen.

Likely the rockingest Tuesday evening DeKalb has ever seen.

Tuesday, Oct 8th at 8:00pm

The show is something of a reunion because 35 years ago Andrew Calhoun, Folksinger, met Beau O’Reilly across the street at the legendary JUICY JOHN PINKS where Beau was doing the booking.

Andrew is touring to support his new album and Beau will be playing with his band The Crooked Mouth who are just about to release their new cd, YES FACE, on uvulittle records. Beau, known somewhat for his theater and radio work on This American Life, has been working musically, for about 5 years with the multi instrumentalist Matt Test, the ethereal voiced Troy Martin on guitar and uke, the bass-playing fine harmonizer Vicki Walden and the eponymous lead singer and drummer Jenny Magnus, with whom Beau shared the drivers seat in Maestro Subgum and The Whole. If any of this rings a bell and you like well-made songs written by people who care about stuff and have a sense of humor, come out and hear us on Tuesday October 8th at 8 o'clock at the House Cafe in DeKalb.

Solstice-Hanukkah-Christmas-And-More Time

Beau wants you to know:

The Crooked Mouth is doing its third and final Holiday Concert at the Center Portion (2850 an a half W Fullerton).  Yup, it's Solstice-Hanukkah-Christmas-And-More Time on Saturday, December 17th at 8 o'clock. Maybe you think you have seen or heard everything by Jenny Magnus, Matt Test, Vicki Walden, Troy Martin, and Beau O'Reilly but think how they feel...they live with themselves year in and year out.

This is the end of this lovely time, so why don't you come and wassail us thru the shortest days of the year cause we are going to do songs you have never heard, in ways you never heard 'em. Our new CD is via UVULITTLE out of Madison (this is the last time i get to say it is our ''New ''CD, from now on it will be referred to as "Our" CD until it morphs into "The" CD, before bashfully accepting the "A" CD moniker). There are songs on it that would sound wild poring out of stockings or jumping out of boxes on Boxing Day!

We have got more special guests for this final show of 2011: Waterbug recording artist ANDREW CALHOUN, one of the tiny handful of master lyricists, singing with his guest CASEY CALHOUN. Our Center Portion hostess, Sheila, will do a Christmas Story, so if you got a Higher power walking with ya, or if you're an enthusiastic atheist who enjoys cold winter winds, or if you are prone to barefootin' no matter who's on the dance card, or if you are pretty darn sure that Santa Claus is still coming, we are the show for you!!! We will have things to drink and eat (Sheila makes this ginger tea that will make you reconsider all your health issues) and it is pay what you can. Kids are welcome.
