Boystown getting live music scene with kickoff of ‘Halsted’s Live’

Music lovers won’t have to wait until Chicago Pride Fest or Market Days to see live bands on Halsted Street, as Halsted’s Bar & Grill kicks off its first music series, “Halsted’s Live.”

Best of all, the bar and restaurant doesn’t plan to charge a cover.

The new event series, located at 3441 N. Halsted St., will debut on Nov. 15 and run on Friday and Saturday nights from 10:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Halsted Live’s opening act will be Crush On Radio, the R&B/pop band that frequents Chicago festivals and summer events, including Pride Fest.

It’s all being imagined by LKH Management partners Mark Liberson, Sean Kotwa and Peter Healy. The trio are owners of Boystown staples like Halsted’s, Elixir, Replay and Hydrate, as well as operators of Whiskey Trust and Manhole.
