venue details

  • PJ's Lager House

    Erin go drink up, Johnny! Dead nuts in the middle of Corktown, the Lager House has perfected the marriage of old meets new. Even through its exodus from local lunchtime watering hole to rock 'n' roller's safe haven, the Lager has maintained its homespun charm. Cozy and inviting, it is still one of the best joints to guzzle Guinness on a crowded St. Patrick's parade day and is one of the few independent music venues not in the clutches of the Clear Channel PR machine. This little-bar-that-could proudly plays host to the ever-popular Monday dollar drink night and a never-ending turnstile of burgeoning rock acts. —Eve Doster

Pewter Cub Album Release

The members of Pewter Cub thought for sure they’d broken up — until Metro Times called them back with an invitation to the Blowout. Four years ago, Scott Sanford and Regan Lorie took a chance and applied with some early demos, and now, looking back, they’re certain that Blowout saved their band. What also saved their band was junking their drum machine and fleshing out their shoegaze-leaning indie-pop jams with a human drummer (Dave Jennings) in time to record their debut album. A few years and a few Blowouts later, Pewter Cub marks another and more inspired turning point with the release of its sublime sophomore LP If You Can Hold Your Breath, on local label Bellyache Records. Once-infamous post-punk quartet Black Lodge is tentatively reuniting for the event, along with dance-rock quintet Pink Lightning.
