August 25: The Flat Five

The Flat Five is a Chicago-based pop vocal super-group — Kelly Hogan, Nora O’Connor, Scott Ligon, Casey McDonough, Alex Hall — five in-demand musicians who individually spend much of their time touring and recording with bands like Neko Case, NRBQ, The Decemberists, Andrew Bird, Mavis Staples, Iron and Wine, Jakob Dylan, Robbie Fulks, Alejandro Escovedo, The New Pornographers, and many other heavy hitters. These five folks stay very, very busy. Yet for the past ten years, these shameless harmony junkies would come together to make music as The Flat Five. Purely for the love of singing together. At first The Flat Five existed only as a once-a-year sold out holiday show in Chicago. Then came quarterly SRO gigs, month-long jam-packed residencies, and recorded music.

Music kicks off at 4:30pm each week so head on over Friday to The Plaza at Millennium Park to start your weekend. For a full summer schedule of Friday Night Sounds, head to 93XRT.com/FridayNightSounds.

Plan your next Happy Hour at Friday Night Sounds. Live Music, Ice Cold Goose Island Beer, and a Chicago Summer Night on The Plaza at Millenium Park – sounds like the perfect recipe for fun. Hope to see you there!
