Ring in the New Year with music, beer, and good cheer with alt-country music star Robbie Fulks and The Famous Brothers, January 2 at Fitzgerald’s Night Club, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Plus Chicago Hotel at Hillside!
Fitzgerald’s Night Club is celebrating its 35th anniversary with a sense of humor! Enjoy the irreverent and often silly Robbie Fulks and The Famous Brothers as they skewer the American Zeitgeist with humor and song.
Songwriter, singer Robbie Fulks “raps up” 2015 by taking a biting look at the past with his annual Rap of the Dead, a tribute to celebrities who died last year. He is either a comedian who sings, or a singer who tells jokes. This concert won’t bring a tear to your eyes, like the Oscar tribute, but it might make you laugh until you cry. Robbie Fulks’ shows often sell out; be advised.
The Famous Brothers swear they hail from the defunct mining town of Monkeys Crevice, West Virginia. Enjoy their three-part harmonies on such songs as “Armageddon Ready for the Second Coming (‘Cause the First One Came Too Fast),” and “I’ve Got Twenty Ways to Kill You with My Swiss Army Knife.” The Famous Brothers are “funny, smart, sweet-voiced, and over-all amiable.” The Chicago Reader
