The Flat Five
June 12, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Post 42 Patio proudly welcomes The Flat Five to open Post 42’s 2nd Beer Garden Summer Concert Series.
Flat Five is a Chicago-based pop vocal super-group — Kelly Hogan, Nora O’Connor, Scott Ligon, Casey McDonough, Alex Hall — made of five in-demand musicians who individually spend much of their time touring and recording with bands like Neko Case, NRBQ, The Decemberists, Andrew Bird, Mavis Staples, Iron and Wine, Jakob Dylan, Robbie Fulks, Alejandro Escovedo, The New Pornographers, J.D. McPherson and many other heavy hitters. These five folks stay very, very busy. Yet for the past ten years, these shameless harmony junkies came together, like a moth to a porchlight, to make music as The Flat Five. Purely for the love of singing together. For the mother-effing fun of it.
This group’s most recent release is 2020s “Another World”. This sophomore album showcases The Flat Five’s trademark keen musicianship and their slightly subversive sense of humor. It’s marked by the playful wide-eyed sweetness that colors all their music, tempered with their appreciation for how freaking good it feels to listen to a beautiful bummer on repeat sometimes. Like Charles Schultz said: “Happiness is a Sad Song.”
IMPORTANT!!!: If you DO NOT WANT TO SHARE your section with people outside of your group you must purchase ALL of the available tickets in a section. As an example, Section #2 is for 7 people. If you only purchase 5 tickets in Section #2 then you will have 2 strangers sitting with you. If you choose not to purchase all of the tickets in your section you will be sharing a table/section with people outside of your group. Outside dining Covid restrictions apply.
The beer garden does not include chairs nor tables. We have a limited number of rentals available.
