Hard liquor is now flowing at Tin Can Ale House. The Bankers Hill venue previously served only beer and wine, but it’s acquired a restaurant license that lets it sell distilled spirits, according to the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. The changes are part of a recent refurbishment; the owners have also been serving food from a new kitchen.

At the moment, the only forms of booze available are shots of whiskey, tequila and Jägermeister. But Tin Can co-owner Kelsey Breunig says they’re getting the bar ready to serve full-fledged cocktails.

“Finally, [we] have almost everything the people want,” she says in an email.

A man of many side-projects, Pinback’s Rob Crow is now doing children’s stories. Last week, he posted a musical tale titled “Rose Petal and Her Red Ball” on a Bandcamp page, story timewithrobcrow.bandcamp.com. Featuring catchy tunes and an array of colorful characters, the three-minute track tells the story of a kitten who loses her beloved ball. Crow, himself a father, announced on Facebook that the track is the first installment of a monthly series.

Ten local rap acts and beat-makers will perform at a memorial birthday show for Miguel Leon-Fregoso at Shakedown Bar on Saturday, April 28. A respected rapper and graffiti artist who went by the moniker Moderfire, Leon-Fregoso was shot and killed outside a bar in North Park in 2008. The bill includes local mainstays Orko Eloheim and Anti Citizens, as well as Leon-Fregoso’s longtime friend and collaborator, Trust One. Proceeds from the door and merchandise will go to Leon-Fregoso’s family.

Folkies Meg & Bryan will celebrate the release of their new album, Back and Forth, at Sunset Temple (3911 Kansas St. in North Park) on Friday, April 27. Erin McLaughlin will also perform.
