For our current venue spotlight, we’re checking out a new venue in Lexington, KY called Cosmic Charlie’s. We had a great conversation with Mark Evans, who is booking the room. In some ways, this room is taking some of the vibe from the Fishtank, an institution in Lexington the last few years in terms of live music, and bringing it across the street to Cosmic Charlie’s. So here is some great information from Mark about their booking philosophy, what the club is going to be like, and just some general musical chit chat!
We gig all over Chicago and recently had a chance to get in on the ground floor of a new venue in the South suburbs called the Voodoo Lounge. It is part of a fabulous restaurant campus that includes Chuck’s Southern Comforts Café,serving top notch Mexican food, and the Voodoo Lounge, which as the name implies is the Cajun way station and BBQ depot. This is where the bands play and is in the French Quarter tradition: a painted concrete floor and low tile ceiling.
For the venue Spotlight of the month we are going to wander our way to the Windy City, to the Southside where our President is from, close to the Lake and Navy Pier and all the other wild goings on in Chicago, and check out a club that is somewhat new in the Chicago-land scene, Reggie’s. The interesting thing about this club, is that it is not just a club, it’s not just two clubs, and it is not just two clubs and a record store. It really is a lifestyle.
