The Latchkeys "Labor of Love" at Kochanski's Concertina Beer Hall

The Latchkeys bring their working class music to Kochanski's Concertina, the Southside's iconic working class bar to celebrate on this workers' holiday weekend. Just 17-21 years old, The Latchkeys have made an impression on owner Andy Kochanski, who has revitalized the establishment formerly known as Art's Concertina. Playing rocking covers and powerful original music, the band gets the crowd going and makes new fans whenever they play. The Latchkeys will make their third appearance in two months at Kochanski's, and hope to make the three day weekend celebration show their best to date.
