wicker park fest

Wicker Park Fest After Party with Jacob Horn Trio, Bosley Jr., & stuck out here

Sunday, July 28th at Emporium Wicker Park – 1366 N. Milwaukee Ave
No Cover – Doors 9pm – Show 9:30pm – 21+

Rad Fake Productions & Emporium Arcade Bar Present: Unofficial Wicker Park After Party with live music from Jacob Horn Trio & Bosley Jr.!

Jacob Horn Trio – The band is steered by singer/songwriter/comedy dude/grumpy uncle Jacob Horn. With a unique and soulful voice Jacob takes people on a day by day of a twenty something living in the midwest’s most prominent city.

Bosley Jr.

stuck out here – We’re young, dumb and full of alternative hooks with pop punk sensibilities. Originally reigning from Huron County, the band mostly resides in Toronto and has spent their fair share of time dealing with the angst and anxious feelings of growing up, being forced to move on, understanding internal struggles and most importantly being there for one another. While the lyrical content addresses the concerns and realities of isolation, the musicality reflects a strong sense of comradery. We may be stuck out here, but we’re stuck out here together.
