Parlour Car ~ Thursday, July 18th, 2013

eagles eagles

Ok y’all, we get it.  It’s hot out.  It’s humid out.  This happens every year, so let’s relax, cool down, maybe take in a show.  What kind of show?  That depends what you’re into.  There’s a bunch of interpretive dance performances you could check out.  Maybe a Mongolian throat singing competition, if there’s ever one in town.  There’s some musicals downtown for like, six hundred bones.  Oh real quick, if you do go to a musical downtown, please dress up for Christ’s sake.  We know it’s 2013, but there’s something gentleman and lady like about dressing up to attend a theater that harkens back to the days of yore.  Wearing a hoody to a palatial theater makes you look like a slob and it detracts from everyone else’s experience and temporary delusion of grandeur before getting back on the moving-fart that is the Blue Line and then sitting in mayonaise.  We digress.  Anyway, don’t go to any of those shows.  Go to Parlour Car.  It’s always free.  The drinks and temperature are always ice cold.  The jokes are red hot.  We know that sounds mega lame.  Shut up about it.  Lineup this week:

Kenny DeForest (Parlour Car; Is This Really It? Podcast)

Nate Simmons (Chicago Underground Comedy)

John Michael Bond (visiting from Hot ‘Lanta)

Matt McClowry (visiting from Detroit)

Candy Lawrence (Chicago Underground Comedy)

Marty DeRosa (Comedians You Should Know, Wrestling With Depression Podcast)

Sean Flannery (Never Been to Paris, Blackout Diaries)

Did you see that?  Your eyes didn’t deceive you, that lineup sillypants nasty style.  Show starts promptly at 9, so get here at 8 if you wanna stop sweating all over everything.  Amaze cocktails.  Awesome joke tellers.  All your and our best friends, and some other dude’s best friends that we don’t really know that well, but it’s cool.  Oh, and #EagleFight.
