The Whistler
Logan Square

Delicious epicurean cocktails might be the Logan Square bar’s forte, but the tiny room hosts more and more delightful underground pop shows and art exhibits. The crowd can’t reach triple digits, so intimacy with both the musicians and your neighbor’s elbows is inevitable. Smartly moved a day up from Wednesday (where it was going against the Hideout’s redoubtable Immediate Sound Series), the Whistler’s jazz weekly resurfaces on Tuesdays with a newfound dedication to cutting-edge swing and free-improv. Vet performers include cornet man Rob Mazurek and drummer Tim Daisy, as well as vibraphone champ Jason Adasiewicz.
