I rode over to the 75th Street Brewery on Wedneday night to enjoy a couple of beers and catch Flannigan’s Right Hook. They are an Irish/Rock/Bluegrass band consisting of a guitarist, electric violinist, and a drummer. The show was impressive and diverse.
Many of the songs would be expected: Beatles covers, traditional Irish instrumentals, Neal Diamond. But what caught me off guard was a most impressive version of Metallica’s One. It was a bit abstract but outstanding, consisting of only the drummer and violinist. The Zelda/Mario Bros. medly was an obvious fan favorite. This is the stuff that beer drinking was meant for.
I believe they regularly play 75th Street at 10pm on Wednesdays, with no cover!
Here are some links to their videos:
