Vagos Burns Night

Jan. 22 Vagos Burns Night Barley Street Tavern, 2735 N. 62nd St. $5 or a traditional Scottish dish, 9 p.m., 21+ 554.5834, barleystreet.com The Scots are proud of many things, but high on the list is poet Robert Burns. So much so that there’s the rich tradition of the Burns supper which entails consumption of haggis and whiskey and recitation of Burns’ works. Barley Street is doing its own version of this feast (celebrated typically around the poet’s birthday) with a little more rock ‘n’ roll flair. Of course the venue is encouraging the traditional dishes, like haggis, the infamous intestinal delicacy, and traditional dress. But they’re also bringing in local rockers Vago, Michael “Wry Mouth” Campbell, Wee Willie Arab, All Young Girls are Machine Guns, Jason “Man-Strength” Ferguson and The Right Reverend Pfloyd. So whether Scottish, whiskey soaked or just curious about whether haggis could possibly be any good (answer: probably), this will certainly make for an interesting night.
