In addition to a free show, customers will enjoy great drink specials, including $3 Jameson, $3 Miller Highlife, $3 Coors Lights and $4 Guinness.
"I like to find new, local music bands that I think are hot at the moment so people get a chance to listen to them," Adam Powes, Talent Buyer of Elbo Room said.
The January 2013 show schedule features,  The Talbott Brothers and Khary 'KFJacques' Laurent on Jan. 16; Bennet and Famous, Yung Supreme, BugattiBeez, Jizzle, VO 100 on Jan. January 23; and Ecstasy and Diego Sol & The Metronomes on Jan. 30.
Khary 'KFJacques' Laurent is all Chicago. Through his partnership with VibePony Records, Laurent paves the way in pop music with infectious hip-hop beats infused with electronic, classical, rock and ethnic influences. His vocals cover a wide range, from reggae to opera to R&B. He's been solicited for collaborations around the world with music composed and performed in four different languages. Explore a realm of imagination that is both retrospective and relevant in this new genre called “Operatronic.”
Ecstasy from Columbus is composed of two artists from very different backgrounds: Kip Newby and Brad Walker. Solidly formed in July 2012, the alternative band has played at various venues and plans on recording their debut album in the next year.
