17.6.1-CafeMustache

Animal City TONIGHT!

animal city

One of my favorite Chicago bands, Animal City, definitely doesn’t play in the city enough. Having said that, TONIGHT they’re playing Cafe Mustache as the closing stop on a lil midwest tour. Not only is the show guaranteed to be a fun time, but 1) it’s FREE, 2) cartoons are playing beforehand starting at 8, and 3) Miss Alex White (of White Mystery) will be spinning some tunes post-show.
