Upcoming Shows

Previous events

SMALL POTATOES is playing a real LIVE, in the flesh, CONCERT this SATURDAY, SEPT 3rd, in DeKALB IL at the "FARGO VENUE", 641 E. Lincoln Hwy (Rt 38), starting at 7:00pm. This is the very first of the “1st SAT. CONCERTS” put together by Dave DK Kolar. We are sharing the evening with our dear friend PATTI ECKER (the other person in the picture who is not Jacquie or Rich). This will be a sort of adventure for all of us since 641 E. is actually a Skateboard Shop with a very cool Skateboard Park right behind. But fear not, just to the RIGHT of that (645?) is a big, lovely room with a gorgeous blue floor that really wants to be filled with friends and music. So come on out to DeKalb on Saturday and ... LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL!
