Highwood’s 210 Live sits on the former Minstrel’s Alley concert space that featured groundbreaking bands including Cheap Trick, Styx and the Ramones in their early years, so they already have a historic vibe in their bones. The venue has already built a good reputation with a variety of acts featuring top-tier jazz, blues, and rock bands.
Now, management is promising to take their concerts to the next level. Their free showcase event, 210 Day, on Saturday, February 10 will give new patrons and longtime customers a chance to sample the NOLA Mardi Gras-style menu, cool ambiance and a fully rehabbed concert space featuring music by Grammy-nominated acid jazz/freestyle-funk stalwarts Liquid Soul with one of Chicago’s tightest horn sections, along with Mariachi Monumental de México as openers. Talent buyer and production manager Dave Katzman told IE “we’re offering a diverse mix of high quality live music of all genres.” 210 Live fills a vibrant “city” music vibe in the shadow of Ft. Sheridan – and it’s easily accessible via Metra.
