There are two sides—literally—to this Northwest Side spot. On one is a small Irish pub that hosts energetic folk and traditional performances most nights. On the other is one of the city’s premier venues for independent hip-hop, where you can catch anyone from local act the Cool Kids to conscious hip-hop artists such as Little Brother. Indie-rock and electro-pop acts such as Cut Copy and Jamie Lidell also stop by regularly.
