New shows from the Old Rock House

We have four new show announcements for you today... they will all go on-sale Mon. 3/14 @ 5pm. Have a great Wednesday!

Cameron McGill
Friday, April 15 • Doors 7pm • Show 8pm • $8 Advance • $10 Day of Show • Over 21 Only
Cameron McGill has never quite fit in. You can hear in his songs that he sees it as both a blessing and a curse. That being said, his is a career that has certainly followed its own path. Scores of tours and five independent releases later, McGill has arrived at a confident place in his songwriting; a place where it’s perfectly okay to be an outsider. Much of the new album Is A Beast was written on a dead man’s guitar in borrowed bedrooms and basements across Chicago; it probably inhabits McGill’s restless spirit as much as the man who owned it before him.

Shpongle presents the Shpongletron Experience: w/ Random Rab, Tom Foolery & Spankalicious
Wednesday, May 11 • Doors 9pm • Show 10pm • $22 Advance • $25 Day of Show • Over 18 Only
Known around the world for the mind-bending and fully immersive sensory experience that Shpongle concerts promise to deliver, Shpongle has raised the bar to new heights with the latest addition to its set-up. This year, UK-based DJ/Producer Simon Posford (the driving force behind Shpongle) is getting ready to hit cities across the US with a full-scale production tour entitled Shpongle presents The Shpongletron Experience.

Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit
Tuesday, May 31 • Doors 7pm • Show 8pm • $12 Flat • All Ages • $2 Minor Surcharge
Here We Rest: The first motto of Jason Isbell’s home state got changed in the early part of last century to a Latin phrase that translates to “we dare defend our rights”. What starts out as peaceful idyll descends into a defensive posture with the threat of bellicosity just beneath the surface. That’s what tough times will do to a people.

Dana Fuchs
Wednesday, June 1 • Doors 7pm • Show 8pm • $15 Advance • $18 Day of Show • Over 21 Only
Producer, co-writer, guitarist Jon Diamond says: “Dana is blessed with an incredibly warm, powerful and textured voice. Her lyrics are direct and real. And while she has really studied the great soul, rock & blues singers, she has synthesized those influences into her own unique sound and style.”
