Weepin' Willows I've lived in Logan Square for most of what I consider my adult life. While the character of the neighborhood is ever changing—we've got fancier pancakes now—unreal Patsy Cline cover band Weepin' Willows remains one of my favorite Logan Square perks. Lead singer Natalie Jose is a friend of mine, and thank goodness for it, because I work nights and don't see much live music. It was our friendship that brought me out to my first Weepin' Willows show at the Whistler, but it's the raw honesty of Natalie's voice and the stellar musicianship of her ensemble that has turned me to a die-hard fan. For those of us that missed Patsy Cline in her day, Weepin' Willows offers a second chance to connect with her heart-opening (and heart-crushing) tunes. Right now folks can catch the band at intimate venues, mostly within the Logan Square/Humboldt Park confines, so tie a kerchief round that neck of yours and get ready to dance cheek to tear-stained cheek.
