Summer may be coming to an end, but the opportunities to see live music at City Winery show no sign of slowing up! September kicks off with a Labor Day party on our patio, followed by a wide variety of musical acts and wine events, including some very well known artists, worldly music and dance, and even a tribute to the great Elvis Costello!
On Labor Day, Monday, September 1, we’re excited for our 3rd annual Bubbly Q presented by Chicago Reader and Chandon! We’ll have a whole roast pig and live music from Fruition, Old Salt Union, and The Way Down Wanderers- all on our patio! Tickets are only $15 and include live music and a split of bubbly!
Immediately following Labor Day is a very exciting 4 nights of seminal punk band X. Each night they’ll perform a different album (Los Angeles, Wild Gift, Under The Big Black Sun, & More Fun In The New World). John Doe put on a great show earlier this summer, so we are thrilled to have him with his full band for four consecutive nights! Later in September, multi award-winning and platinum-selling singer-songwriter Macy Gray will be here for two nights. Her new album comes out in October, so she may preview some new music- who knows?
Here at City Winery we try our hardest to bring in worldly music and events, and September boasts several worldly events worth attending. Whether you choose to attend the Yalumba Winery dinner on 9/3 (Australia), the Wines of Provence tasting on 9/4 (France), the World Music Festival on 9/15 (Morocco, Tunisia), An Afternoon of Flamenco on 9/21 (Spain), or all four, we’ll broaden your horizons and expose you to the beautiful food, wine, music, and dance of countries all over the world!
On 9/30 we’re excited to wrap up the month of September with an evening of songs by Elvis Costello, performed on the piano by Steve Nieve, Costello’s keyboardist of over 30 years! Steve will play solo piano reinterpretations of Elvis’s best songs- and they will be nothing short of incredible!
