Musicians are some of our favorite people. They tend to be such creative and open-minded people, who appreciate storytelling just as much as we do. Add craft beer and good food to that equation, and that pretty much equals our heaven.

Needless to say, this Saturday is looking pretty heavenly. Starting this Saturday, January 31st, we’re pumped to announce we’ll be doing a second live music series with Uncommon Ground here in Chicago.

We were happy to be a part of their super unique, Rooftop Farm Sessions, this past summer, where local and traveling artists got to play an intimate live session amongst the organic rooftop garden on the UG Devon location. It was a beautiful setting full with stellar music, great people and Lagunitas beer [see for yourself below].

This time around, we get to shoot in an Uncommon Ground setting we think is equally as beautiful – the first certified organic brewery in Chicago, Greenstar Brewery. Similar to the Rooftop Sessions, the #GreenstarSessions [as we’re going to call them – stay tuned for it to start trending] are going to be intimate, private performances from some of the top national and local artists. The best part about this series, though, is after they’re done doing a stripped down session, they’re going to play a show available to the public at the Clark location.

Our first session is going to feature Chicago-based Michele McGuire, who is an indie-folk singer-songwriter. Her debut album, Mid-Western, is her view of growing up on Chitown’s South Side, as well as traveling around the country. You can check out her Facebook, Twitter, Bandcamp

We can’t wait to meet her and get to work with her and other artists on this Winter series. We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we release the first vid!

Until then, we figured we’d share our full Rooftop Series. It’ll give you hope that we’ll get out of this icy tundra at some point in the future:

And just incase that isn’t enough music for you, here’s our Vimeo album with some of the other music work we’ve done.

Want to check out Michele’s show for yourself? Tickets are $10. Call ahead to reserve a table. More details here.
