flying high

Last night I went to Spencer’s Stadium Tavern to see the Tecumseh Flyers perform.

First, I LOVE this bar. It’s the perfect mix of divey, sporty and just plain comfortable– and they have an incredible beer selection!  I passed up the Bell’s Oberon and Rogue Dead Guy in bottles to try what they had on tap.  I ended up with a Dogfish Head (not bad, really bitter for an IPA) and a couple of choices from the Upland Brewing Company in Bloomington.

Second, the Tecumseh Flyers are this incredible, addictive mix of traditional bluegrass, old-time country and rockabilly (I believe they call it “bluebilly”).  Jason and Steve went acoustic for the show, and played to a pretty sparse audience, but you could tell they were having a blast and were genuinely happy to be performing.

They will be performing at the Feast of Lanterns (this Saturday, August 26) at 5:00 p.m.  Be sure to check them out!
