After a tour of Ireland and releasing a live recording of a nearly sold out Schuba's crowd -- Gar Clemens has had a great year of keeping his fans anticipating his 2013 release of "St. Anthony's Pawn Shop". In early December of 2012 -- An irritated Clemens left 12 completed studio tracks behind to begin questioning what to do next and I offered to produce/engineer his latest effort. From that moment on, "fucking up folk tradition and standards" became the primary focus on this lo-fi collaboration. After being tracked at a haunted local Chicago bar -- Clemens proves that great songwriting can transcend genre. Friday, December 21 // Lilly's // Doors at 8 // $6 cover // Mark Taylor opening the night followed by Tyne Darling and Micah Schnabel of Two Cow Garage and Gar Clemens closes the night at 11pm. All who attend will receive a free single/extended version of "St.Anthony's Pawn Shop" featuring Jim Licka ofUmbra and The Vulcan Siege.
