The Lawrencian Calendar for July
My July is a chock fulla outstanding goods. Kindly come check ‘em all out!


Wednesday the 1st- Spinning "Country, My Way" at The Sportsman’s Club (948 N. Western Ave.). It’s my monthly night for playing all the great honky tonk, bluegrass, outlaw, western swing, countrypolitan, country funk, etc, that I can fit into a four hour slot. I’ve got some recent acquisitions, and a whole lot of under-played wonders to dazzle you with. Don’t miss out! 10pm. No cover.

Wednesday the 8th- The Lawrence Peters Outfit is opening for The Tillers at SPACE (1245 Chicago Ave, Evanston). I’ve seen that li’l Cincinnati string band a few times and they are the real thang. Catch ‘em before they are too big of a deal to see in an intimate setting. We start it off at 7:30pm, with a 40 minute set. Tix $10 to $18. Get ‘em now!

Monday the 13th- Spinning a mix of outlaw country, rockabilly, and roots rock, at The General (2528 N. California Ave.). Check out this new joint, and hear some countrified items that I don’t regularly spin. Gonna get grimy! 6:30pm to whenever we’ve all had enough. No cover, but bring some funds for the hungries and thirsties.

Wednesday the 15th- it’s a Lawrence Peters Outfit double header!
5 to 7pm- The Lawrence Peters Outfit plays The Lyric Opera (20 N. Wacker Dr.). No kidding! We’ll be performing a couple sets in the gigantic foyer, as part of The Lyric’s new lumpen proletariat series. I’ll be cracking jokes about the Clampetts, and their cee-ment pond. Classic! 5 to 7pm. No cover.
8:30pm to 10:30pm-ish- It’s The Lawrence Peters Outfit’s monthly residency at The High-Hat Club (1920 W. Irving Park Ave.). We’ll play all seven of the new songs I’ve written during the run of this series, plus the new one I’m currently finishing up. Two sets- 8:30pm to 10:30pm-ish. $5 cover. Great food and drinks. See you there!

Sunday the 19th- it’s a two-fer, with the The Golden Horse Ranch Band!
1pm to 2pm- The Golden Horse Ranch Band plays The Family Fun Tent (Michigan Ave. and Randolph). We’ll do some bonafide kid music, plus a good mix of adult-friendly tunes. Fun for all!
4pm- 7pm- The Golden Horse Ranch Band at Summer Dance Grant Park- Spirit Of Music Garden (601 S. Michigan Ave.). Annie will teach you all you need to know to tear it up with your fellow square dancers, from 4pm to 5pm, and then we’ll kick it out solid, from 5pm to 7pm. No cover.

Wednesday the 22nd- I’m sharing bingo meister duties with Angela Vela, at The Hideout (1354 W. Wabansia), for Veggie Bingo. 5:30pm to 8pm. Cards are $4 each, or 3 for $10.

Thursday the 23rd- The Lawrence Peters Outfit at The Family Fun Tent (Michigan Ave. and Randolph), playing for the chil’rens and the lunch eaters, from 1 to 2pm. Come hear us influencing young minds, with songs about heartbreak and drinking. Alright! No cover.

Sunday the 26th- I’m spinning country records for a line dance night at Summer Dance in Grant Park- Spirit Of Music Garden (601 S. Michigan Ave.). Dance instruction from 4 to 5pm by "The Galaxie". I spin records from 5 to 7pm, throwing down some righteous country line dance jams, plus all the two-steps and waltzes a country lover could want. No cover.


Heads-up for August:

Wednesday the 5th- "Country, My Way”, my country DJ series at The Sportsman’s Club (948 N. Western Ave.) continues, with under-played classics, obscure greats, and new finds- all on vinyl. 10pm. No cover.

Wednesday the 19th- The Lawrence Peters Outfit’s next installment in our monthly residency at The High-Hat Club (1920 W. Irving Park Ave.). I’m aiming to finish at least one new song for each month’s show. We’re up to seven new ones, so far. Come hear the new goods! Two sets- 8:30pm to 10:30pm-ish. $5 cover.

See you at everything!
