This is one of those jam packed weekends that there is just too much going on.
If you haven’t seen Liam Finn yet he puts on one helluva show and is playing Lincoln Hall. I have caught him a few times and he never disappoints. Over at the Metro, California Wives are taking a break from writing their record to open for the legendary Peter Hook (Joy Division/New Order/Monaco) For the record he is one of my all time top 5 favorite bassists.
If you aren’t catching either of those show… There is GREAT band from Boston called The Wandas whose S/T release is a must listen for any fan of early Wilco or a lover of solid crafted pop music. They are over at Panchos, and if you make it to this show, make sure to come say hi to me!
Hideout is celebrating their 15th year with a Killer line up of a Block Party, and proceeds are going towards Rock for Kids one of my favorite charities.
Check out the Summer Sessions on the Square in Logan Square at the monument with In Tall Buildings afterward slide over to The Whistler for some tasty cocktails and help them celebrate their 3 year anniversary.
The Horrors are at Lincoln Hall and from what I have heard from their release it will be worth staying out on the school night. Night 2 of Jane’s Addition at Metro and Daphne Willis is at Double Door.
Not hitting any of these and know of a good show this weekend or have something coming up? Speak up and share!
