Milk Maid at 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. The Whistler's jazz weekly doubles up the series with cutting-edge swing and free-improv now on both Monday and Tuesday nights. Vet performers include cornet man Rob Mazurek and drummer Tim Daisy, as well as vibraphone champ Jason Adasiewicz.
