God Street Wine celebrates their 30th anniversary this year -- although you might know them primarily from their 90's output. The band has largely remained in mothballs in the 20 years since they last played Chicago.
But in their heyday, they specialized in a mature, song-focused take on the jamband formula, and became a staple on stage at Wetlands, on the HORDE tour and alongside many of the bands who came to put a face to the jam movement in the years since.
They are back at Chicago's City Winery for a Sunday night show on July 29. We want to send some of our readers to see this show for free.

What They Say
After almost a decade apart, God Street Wine reunited privately in 2009 to honor an old friend who had passed away. A year later they joined together on the public stage for four New York concerts benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and in 2011 played on the Jam Cruise. Since then, along with their old friend Jason Crosby, GSW continues to get together every now and then. They have played at Bob Weir's TRI Studios and Sweetwater Music Hall, rambles with Phil Lesh at Terrapin Crossroads, and various shows in NY.
What We Say
Whether you are reliving the old days, or never got a chance to catch God Street Wine the first time around, this show at City Winery Chicago should be a perfect way to spend a Sunday night.
