During the warm summer months in Chicago, there's nothing like an outdoor concert accompanied by some good food and a couple of drinks. That's why Time Out Market Chicago has teamed up with Goose Island Brewing Co. to present a series of free-to-attend performances on the food hall's Fulton Market patio, showcasing music from local artists that you can enjoy while digging into a brisket platter from Soul & Smoke or licking an ice cream cone from Shawn Michelle's.
Goose Island's 312unes concert series has already brought soul outfit the Hemispheres and blues guitarist Dave Specter to Time Out's Fulton Market stage over the past few weeks, but the local brewery has just revealed its schedule of shows for the remainder of the summer. In the coming weeks, you'll be able to catch free sets from R&B trumpeter and bandleader Sam Trump (joined by his band, Soul Vortex), twangy rock quartet The Western Elstons, horn section-assisted cover band Expo ’76 and reggae act Akasha.
From 5 to 8pm on the day of each Goose Island 312unes concert, the Time Out Market Bar will be serving cans of Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat Ale and 312 Lemon Shandy for just $3.12 (see what we did there?). Of course, you'll also be able to enjoy food from all of the Time Out Market Chicago vendors, whether you're craving a tavern-style pizza or a fried chicken sandwich. Just remember that all seating at Time Out Market Chicago is first come, first served, so if you want to lock down a prime view of the stage, you may want to show up for an early dinner!
Check out the complete schedule of Goose Island 312unes concerts at Time Out Market Chicago and stop by for some hot tunes and cool drinks. All performances run from 5:45–8pm.
