The Mudflapps Live @ The Knot (8:00 pm - 0:00 - midnight)
The Mudflapps play every Monday in the Pub from 8pm onwards.. $4 16oz Pints of Smithwick’s Ale. Uncomplicate your Mondays. No TVs in the bar. Eat, drink, converse and enjoy free live music. Food and drink served late. Never a cover. The Mudflapps are a Chicago- based band that plays original acoustic music. Whether plugged-in on the big stage, or truly unplugged and unamplified, they give audiences a dose of country storytelling at its finest. The songs weave tales of woe, whiskey, and wild living into a mix of styles with nearly universal appeal. Sometimes it sounds like honky-tonk, sometimes more like bluegrass, sometimes more like jug band blues. It often sounds like nothing you’ve ever heard before. Upright bass, guitars and banjo combine with strong songwriting and tight vocal harmony to create a show fit for stages of any size.
