Beginning March 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 to remember.

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 Avenue in Prospect Heights. For more information, call (718) 622-7035 or visit
