Racine Music venue

One of my favorite road trips is just a 30 minute drive down to Racine. McAuliffe's Irish Pub books an enormous variety of musical styles, and the crowds come out in big numbers to see who J.J. found to grace the tiny stage. Looking back, I must hit that club at least five times a year.
When you have a drink at McAuliffe's, you feel like you are part of a group of people that welcome strangers as much as the regulars.

I caught the Barrettes at McAuliffe's a few weeks ago. The are playing the Cascio tent at Summerfest this year, but a much bigger feather in their cap would be the commercial featuring the band. The Barrettes will be promoting mass transit in Milwaukee.

I can't imagine how this eclectic band will fit in with that task, but I'm sure it will be interesting.
