American Songwriter recently interviewed Robert Earl Keen for its "Legends" column. Here's what it has to say about his songwriting:
- …Keen’s latest study in spinning everyday observations into the ache for home and belonging, traced through the lonely lodger at “The Village Inn” and the technology-tangled protagonist of “Wireless in Heaven.” By the end, Keen hasn’t exactly convinced you of his capacity for couch-sitting so much as he has made an album that makes you want to sit still and listen. – Matt Fink
- Joe's is the best Hang Out in the Chicago land area…if you're into bands... Joe's books only the most popular talent. They book all kinds of music…Be sure to get there early to avoid any lines, and give yourself enough time to have a great meal before the band starts. – stelstarz, Citysearch
- Joe's is hands down one of the greatest bars in the city. The food is good, drinks awesome, staff always prompt and courteous, and the live music scene is phenomenal! You won't be disappointed! – kristi, Metromix
