A Day in the Country

By Julene McCoy in Arts & Entertainment on Jun 22, 2007 8:30PM

2007_06_dayincountryposter.jpgIs there enough going on this weekend? We’re here to add to the list of places to go. Sunday is “A Day in the Country” at the Hideout. Get some BBQ, hear some country music, drink some whiskey. Sounds perfect to us.

The whole dang thing begins at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday with a couple acoustic sets out front by Tangleweed and The Golden Horse Ranch Band before moving the music inside for the remainder of the day and night. The cost is a mere $10 for the whole day — less than the price of seeing just one of these fine bands by themselves.

The Hoyle Brothers start off the inside sets with their traditional country. Other notable acts include Gin Palace Jesters, The Lawrence Peters Outfit and Freakwater. Check out Lawrence’s descriptions of each and every band playing.

We’ll be there for the hoedown in the industrial park. How could we resist the promise of pie? All bands slated to play are listed after the jump with approximate times.

Sunday, June 24, 2:00 p.m., $10, 21+. The Hideout is located at 1354 W. Wabansia. "A Day in the Country" poster by Kathleen Judge.
