Fat City Bar and Grill is Champaign-Urbana's home for Live Music.
Join us for our next big event:
Friday December 19: UPSHOT!!!
Upshot originated in 2007 simply as a group of college friends in the Midwest who wanted to jam. What started out as informal sessions for friends and dorm rooms soon blossomed into a local following and a desire to take the project to the next level.
The next few years were spent crafting their songs and developing an identity that is truly theirs and theirs alone. The genres of music that inspire Upshot run across the board and it's clearly evident in their music. After a few years of the ever-so-predictable ups and downs, personnel changes, and several cross-country relocations, Upshot settled down back in the Midwest to record their debut album, City Noise, in March of 2011.
An eclectic mix from the genre-defying band, City Noise defines what Upshot is all about. Socially conscious lyrics combined with elements of rock, blues, reggae, funk, hip-hop, and many other styles to give you a truly remarkable experience.

Friday December 26: BRUSHVILLE!!!
Brushville IS BACK @ Fat City Bar and Grill!!! You KNOW this is a party you do not want to miss!
Brushville is INTENSE…they are EXPLOSIVE…think matches and barrels of gasoline…with an unrelenting pressure on the audience of high energy…
Brushville has been igniting stages all over the Midwest for the past 4 years. To prove just how much of an impact Brushville can have, they decided to enter the BATTLE FOR THE SADDLE at Nashville, Tennessee’s legendary WILDHORSE SALOON in early 2012. Out of the over 300 national bands that entered, Brushville came out on top and was selected the winner by a panel of top industry professionals including Michael Knox (the man credited with “discovering” talents such as Jason Aldean, John Rich and Gretchen Wilson).
To further add to Brushville’s resume…they have shared the stage with some of Country Music’s MEGA-STARS including: Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Lady Antebellum, Alan Jackson, The Band Perry, Big & Rich, Justin Moore and many more!
Brushville blends five extremely talented musicians, with incredible harmonies, an explosive stage show and a fresh, dynamic sound produced by an array of instruments to create an unforgettable experience for the audience.
This isn’t just a band…
It’s an experience.
Welcome to BRUSHVILLE.
