Top choice live music in Wicker Park, Bucktown & Ukrainian Village

Hidden behind a factory past the edge of Bucktown, this two-room lodge of indie rock and alt-country is well worth seeking out. The owners have nursed an outsider, underground vibe, and the place feels like your grandma's rumpus room. Music and other events (talk shows, literary readings, comedy etc) take place nightly. On Mondays there's a great open-mic poetry night.
