Think you know music? The Bungalow LoungeBar wants you to prove it--or at least have fun trying. Beginning Thursday, April 9 at 8pm, and continuing every Thursday, Lakeview’s Bungalow LoungeBar will quiz participants on song lyrics, trivia, music clips (think “Name that Tune”) and more. Participants will play in teams of ?ve people or less and can create their own team or be grouped into a team at the quiz. Prizes will be awarded to the top teams.
“Chicagoans know music,” says Aaron Hogan, the Bungalow’s owner, “and I don’t mean one or two BonJovi or Britney Spears songs. I mean every genre, every decade from stadium rockers to small indie bands.” Hogan says the content of the quiz will re?ect this same broad spectrum of music interests.
“If you own an iPod, listen to the radio, or watch MTV, you’ll do well on the quiz,” Hogan continues. “To win, though, you’re going to need to know one or two ‘B-sides’--and know what a B-side is!”
Hogan has had a life-long passion for music and it was knowing an obscure “B-side” that landed him the ultimate prize: his wife. “She decided she was going to marry me on our ?rst date after I said Beyond Belief by Elvis Costello was one of my favorite songs.”
Never underestimate the power of knowing your music.
