The Bottom Lounge, 1375 W Lake St., Chicago, Illinois will be hosting the famous Roky Erickson Halloween Show this year. Pioneering psychedelic rocker Roky Erickson, a founding member of the Thirteenth Floor Elevators and once again a healthy and inspiring solo artist returned from years of exile battling mental illness.
The Bottom is a big space that can accommodate a good crowd. The front bar has an extensive beer list and a big food menu. Rumor has it that there is some sort of tiki bar on the roof or something.
The Bottom has:
-Huge beer selection. (prices range from $3 Schlitz on tap to a $14 framboise lambic.)
-$9 for a pizza isn't all that bad. The menu seems legit.
-The door/security guys were super nice and hilarious.
-The sound system was pretty great.
Bottom Lounge Music Room is open Wednesday through Sunday unless otherwise noted. Doors at 8pm show at 9pm unless otherwise noted.
