Chris Comer Trio concerts

Email from Chris Comer 2/2/14:

If you are missing the hip jazz nights at Chez Nora we used to play, there's this cozy hip spot in Northside on Hamilton Ave. called The LISTING LOON. It's in a space that used to be a tango dance studio next to the bike shop SPUN BICYCLES. The address is 4124 Hamilton Ave. They have a nice piano at The Listing Loon as well as all kinds of unique beers and a full bar. I'm playing piano there this Wednesday at 8pm with Bryan Berwanger on bass & Brendan Blumer on drums.
