‘Too Old’ pop-rocker Riser to perform in Wrigleyville

Local singer Michael Riser performs at 8:45 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11, at Goose Island Brewpub in Wrigleyville. Riser gained acclaim for his “Too Old for Idol,” a video protesting “American Idol’s” age limit, and has built up a following at area clubs.

The pop-rock performer also hosts and sings at the “Rising Stars Songwriter Showcase” at the Grafton in Lincoln Square on the second and fourth Monday of every month. Musicians are welcome to join him, playing either solo or with accompaniment.
