18, the Kings County Opry will present a monthly helping of live
bluegrass, country and alt-country music at Freddy’s Bar and
Backroom in Prospect Heights.
At 8 pm on Thursday, four musicians around a microphone will
kick off the night with a song circle. At 9 pm, Lil’ Buck, aka
Thomas Bailey, will perform old-time Appalachian fiddle tunes.
And at 10 pm, The Flanks, described by Sweet William and the
Country Gentlemen’s Dock Oscar as a "jug band with a lurching
twist," will surely make this inaugural performance a night
According to Oscar, The Flanks have "all-spit-and-no-polish
country-and-blues stylings. Most of their songs are about rural
life, drugs or trying to pick up recently divorced women."
As for Oscar, Sweet William and The Country Gentlemen (pictured)
will perform at Freddy’s on April 24 at 9:30 pm.
No cover charge. Freddy’s is located at 485 Dean St. at Sixth
