Chicago has your daytime and nighttime fun handled for today.
Head on over now to Bric-a-Brac to help celebrate their 4-year anniversary with pizza, music from folks like Sweet Cobra, WAD, and Negative Scanner, and bunches more going on. Event is from 12-7 with music at 4, and more details are HERE.
Head on over now to East Room for their annual Rock’n’Roll Market with local vendors, DJs from Hozac and Chirp, and music from folks like White Mystery, Flesh Panthers, Yoko and the Oh No’s, and Easy Habits, and bunches more going on. Event is from 12-7 with music at 2, and more details are HERE.
Head on over to Cole’s to catch music from The Peekaboos, Twist & Dot, and Benny Timbre. Doors are at 8, with music at 9, and more details are HERE.
Head on over to Auxiliary to catch music from Rat Hammer, Toranovax, Blacker Face and Diagonal. Doors are at 8, and more details are HERE.
With no regularity and based on undefined criteria, I’ll sometimes post a song of the day. Today is one of those days. Enjoy.
From Chicago’s Flesh Panthers, check out “Ride the Blind” below, and click their pic for their Facebook.
PS If you like the song, it’s included on this mix I featured on Radio One Chicago
– you should give that a whirl ’cause you’ll probably dig those jams too!
Every Thursday from 6-8pm on Loyola University radio a group of music-lovers hit the air to share and promote our city’s amazing local talent. I couldn’t be more excited to join them tonight as a guest DJ! Tune in to WLUW FM 88.7 if you’re in Chicago, or stream it live HERE from anywhere!
In between interviews with Chicago bands Sadie and the Stark and The Bishop’s Daredevil Stunt Club I’ll be sharing favorite tracks from some of my favorite local bands. Listen in to hear music from folks like Vamos, Dan Rico, Jude Shuma, Flesh Panthers, Lucille Furs, The Bingers, and more!
These two acts alone make the show pretty much a no-brainer, but given it’s Dan’s tour kickoff AND Saint Pé (of Black Lips) is on the bill, holeymoley it’s bound to be good.
I have never seen so many bands I LOVE listed on one poster before. Spread across three days and three venues, this fest promises to be your best bet on how you should spend your time and money this weekend. Click the pic to learn more, then come out!
So many great show posters are made in Chicago, making FB events and random street poles look good, but I think the art representing our city’s live music deserves a bit more love. I’ll share posters I dig for upcoming gigs, and you can click ’em to learn more about the show.
