One of our favorite little spots to see a show is one most Chicagoan’s have probably never heard of. The Drunken Donut in Joliet is truly much more than just a deli and bakery. Between the weekend shows, the “Electric Wednesday” Open Mic, and the popular stand-up comedy nights, The Drunken Donut is the place to be in Joliet.

At the end of January we got a real treat when 4 Chicago acts made their way south of I-80 to grace the Donut’s stage… or well, that space in front of the pastry display. Our only complaint was that the band’s couldn’t play a bit longer, although Diagonal did toss in a few encore’s at the end of the night.

The photos tell some of the story but you really had to be there, relive the night or just browse the photos below!
