Chelsea Wolfe @ Lincoln Hall in August (more by Zach Pollack)

As mentioned, the 2013 edition of Tomorrow Never Knows is slated to take place from January 16-20 at venues throughout the city. More acts have now been added to the festival, some to existing shows and some as brand new events.

One of those brand new shows is the stacked lineup of Chelsea Wolfe, The Amazing, and King Dude at Schubas on January 19. Ms. Wolfe made her Chicago debut at Lincoln Hall this summer, and recently released the great Unknown Rooms: A Collection Of Acoustic Songs via Sargent House. She's got an electric, full-band album coming soon. Sweden's The Amazing welcomed their Gentle Stream LP last month in the US via Partisan Records. They're currently supporting Tame Impala on tour and will be in Chicago on November 13 to play Metro. King Dude (aka TJ Cowgill) released his new album, Burning Daylight, in October via DAIS. He'll embark on a North American tour this weekend, which is set to reach Chicago on December 12 for a performance at the Empty Bottle. Tickets for Chelsea Wolfe, The Amazing, and King Dude go on sale this Friday (11/9) at noon CST.

The other new show will be headlined by San Francisco's Geographer, and is taking place at Schubas on January 20. Tickets for that show are also going on sale this Friday at noon CST.

Hundred Waters, who recently played Schubas with Julia Holter, have been added to Freelance Whales' January 19 show at Lincoln Hall with Snowmine. Advance tickets are still available.

As mentioned, The Walkmen, who played Metro as part of TNK 2012, will be playing the Vic with Father John Misty on January 18. That show is now part of Tomorrow Never Knows, with limited availability for 5-Day Pass holders. Speaking of 5-day passes, they are still available.

Stay tuned for more Tomorrow Never Knows 2013 updates.

Freelance Whales @ Newport Folk Festival 2011 (more by Jim Brueckner)

Eventbrite's Concert Confidential is a simultaneous, multi-city event that consists of surpise free shows in NYC, LA, San Francisco, Dallas, and our very own Chicago this coming Saturday (9/17).

Freelance Whales will play the Chicago show at a TBA venue EMPTY BOTTLE. Chicago's RSVP will be open starting Wednesday night (really Thursday morning - 9/15) at 12:01AM CST. If you get a confirmation email to the 21+ event, you then need to print out your ticket (instructions in your confirmation) and be one of the first 400 people to show up. Doors will be at 6:30PM / Show at 7PM.

The NYC show, which was curated and co-produced by BrooklynVegan, will take place at Manhattan venue Beekman Beer Garden with The Hold Steady and one more band TBA. Tickets go "on sale" at the same time (EST).

Wavves will play LA, Jackie Greene will play San Fran., and Green River Ordinance will play Dallas.

Each event will be accepting donations for a different charity based in that area. Chicago's show will highlight our friends Rock for Kids, a local not-for-profit organization focused on funding the lack of musical education in Chicago's schools. Please donate if you're able. Check out a trailer of what they strive to do below.

Good luck getting in!
