An Unexpected Party: A Night in Middle-Earth with Jack & The Bear

Listen Up Toledo  |  12/04/2012

In case you were worried about celebrating the release of Peter Jackson’s new flick, The Hobbit, all alone, don’t Frodo … I mean, fret. Don’t fret. The Ottawa Tavern is hosting a special Hobbit-themed hoopla, aptly dubbed "An Unexpected Party," with local folk-rockers, Jack & The Bear.

Hailing from the holler of Monroe, MI, Jack & The Bear are easily one of the area’s most talented acts. After wowing crowds of all ages on stages ranging from coffee houses to bars to summer festivals ? all while playing original music ? the band has toured the East Coast, self-recorded and released and album, and had a video featured on MTV’s new Catfish show. This all before most of them were legally allowed to purchase a beer.

A Jack & The Bear show at the OT is never one to miss in the first place. A Jack & The Bear show featuring two sets and an evening dedicated to The Hobbit … well, my precious, this is the kind of thing Gandalf will send you into Mordor for missing.

Jack & The Bear play the Ottawa Tavern (1815 Adams St.) on Saturday, December 8th. Music at 10 p.m. No cover.  Visit Jack & The Bear on Facebook
