When I talk about this show, I’m not sure that people completely understand what a great partnership this is with Uncommon Ground. They book real singer/songwriters that are not comedians. The music is so good. This week will not be any different with Xoe. Room opens up at 7:00PM. Show starts at 8:00PM every Tuesday in the listening room. Reserve your table today: 773-929-3680. Menu.
