It's back! The second installment of our annual Winter Slumber featuring Chicago singer-songwriter, guitarist and banjoist AL SCORCH returns to the Empty Bottle Brunch Hour. A special residency that started here in early 2013, this Sunday afternoon series finds Scorch and a variety of guests stretching their musical legs and 2018 will see a charitable element brought to each month's installment.
In February we will be accepting donations for two organizations: PRIMA (Puerto Rico Independent Musicians & Artists) and Puerto Rico No Se Vende.
Raquel Berríos and Luis Del Valle, members of the indie band BUSCABULLA, and Latina musician ANI CORDERO have started the Puerto Rico Independent Musicians Fund (PRIMA), an emergency grant to help struggling artists in Puerto Rico after the category 4 storm ravaged the U.S territory in September.
With great music, jolly people and a damn good cause, Winter Slumbers are always a fantastic way to spend some of those escape the tundra Sunday afternoons. So grab a pal or four, order a round of bloodies, maybe some brunch, and enjoy the 2018 Winter Slumber.
