Cookout Series at Hopmonk Tavern Presents Chuck Prophet and Bill Kirchen
Date: Friday, September 9, 2022
KC Turner Presents Chuck Prophet & Bill Kirchen:
Since his neo-psychedelic Green On Red days, Chuck Prophet has been turning out country, folk, blues, and Brill Building classicism. THE LAND THAT TIME FORGET is something different, a weather vane picking up signals from outer space – or maybe it’s the Heartland.
Upon tallying how many decades Bill Kirchen has worked as a professional guitar slinger, Telecaster master he quips, “Well, they don't make 50 years like they used to.” They don’t often make careers like his, either. From performing with his Who Knows Pickers jug band in Ann Arbor High School’s senior talent show (also on the program: the future Iggy Pop), to birthing the Americana genre with the original “hippie country band,” Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen, this affable Austinite has been everywhere, man, flying alongside some of the planet’s coolest cats — including the Jesus of Cool, Nick Lowe, and Lowe’s old protégé, Elvis Costello.
The duo for this show will be an acoustic evening of song swaps and stories.
Tickets are $45 each for general admission; $63 for general admission plus a cookout meal. Reservations for a picnic table of 10 are also available. All tickets must be purchased in the above website link.
Doors open at 6:30pm; Show starts at 7:30pm
