Over three nights in mid-July, fine spirits purveyors Sailor Jerry will bring nine rock’n’roll rabblerousers to Cobra Lounge for what should prove one heck of a sweat-soaked, rum-stained weekend. They’re calling it “Three Days of Music,” and, well, they’ve certainly got that part right.
Friday, July 15 sees the garage-rocking ginger siblings of White Mystery heading a bill that also includes local glam-punks Mickey and Lansing, Michigan pummelers par excellence The People’s Temple. July 16 finds glammy gadflys Mannequin Men topping a list that also features lo-fi gal-group inspired locals Hollows and up-and-comers E+. Come Sunday, Chicagoan garage-dwellers Gypsyblood top a bill that also includes like-minded locals Heavy Times and Wet Heat.
We’re thinking this could be a good alternative for those who find that weekend’s Pitchfork bill a little lacking in the straight-up rock department (what, you don’t think Fleet Foxes shred?), or a nice nightcap on the fest, seeing as Cobra Lounge is mere feet from Union Park. Either way, you might as well announce your intentions by RSVPing here; it is, after all, free.
