Pencil This In: The Flat Five At Hideout

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 12, 2014 6:30PM

Anytime The Flat Five (Scott Ligon, Nora O'Connor, Kelly Hogan, Casey McDonough and Alex Hall) get together should be considered appointment listening. The quintet is in the middle of a Thursday November residency at Hideout, performing two sets of different material each week. Their repertoire ranges from cabaret to Gospel, flat out rockers to murder ballads, inspired covers and sizzling originals and everything in between. In short, they're fearless and fierce.

Catch them before the month is over. (1354 W. Wabansia)
