Cody Canada and the Departed with Fletcher Rockwell

- What he’s up to now: serving as frontman of the Departed
- What both bands have in common, besides the presence of Mr. Canada: bassist Jeremy Plato; love for country music straight out of Oklahoma

- Essential tracks: their bluesy cover of Kevin Welch’s “Kickin’ Back in Amsterdam”; “Flagpole” from 2013’s Adventus
- Home base of heartland rockers Fletcher Rockwell: Chicago
- The non-Fletcher name of their frontman: Mike Nutt
At Joe’s on Weed St., sports games and pennants fill the front space, and a stage in the rear hosts a bevy of live musical acts. Conveniently located near the North and Clybourn Red Line station, the acoustical walls of the full bar have vibrated with the sounds of such artists as O.A.R., Keith Urban, Run-DMC, and Rick Springfield.
