Maps & Atlases at Lincoln Hall on 10.28.2012
As part of a recent Bonnaroo365-sponsored tour, local dudes Maps & Atlases hit the road with White Denim and a few different opening acts. That tour came through Chicago on October 28 for a performance at Lincoln Hall. More pictures of both White Denim and Maps & Atlases are in this post. And while we're well aware that far too much weight is put on New Year's Eve, we're here remind you that Maps play Schubas on both December 30 & 31. Gypsyblood open on the 30th, and tickets are still available for both performances. There's also a two-show pass for sale.

JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound @ Hotel Vegan
"...Before we were able to bask in the glory, we were driving in MAD traffic to get across town to Hotel Vegas to play Brooklyn Vegan's "Hotel Vegan" party. We barely got to the stage in time, screeched up, lept out of the van like we were the A-Team. Set up. Go. 11 people in the room, tops. The big names are outside in the back. And then something clicked, we just continue to be locked in. I look up five songs later and the room is packed. Wall to wall hipsters, including friends from Gypsy Blood, The Pinstripes, and Kane Place Record Club. It was a riot. Like a real house party. Next thing I know, we're shaking hands and getting in cell phone pictures and some real cool guy from Chicago with a little city pride takes us all out to dinner..." [JC Brooks SXSW Tour Diary]That was the kind of day it was back on Wednesday, March 14th inside Volstead Lounge which was turned into the BV Chicago stage of Hotel Vegan for an afternoon. Pictures are in this post.
Special thanks to a Sailor Jerry, Brooklyn Brewery, HobNob Wines, and Honest Tea for providing refreshments. Thanks also to our backline partners Korg, Vox, and Blackstar Amplification for helping make the sound happen,
Thanks especially to everyone who stopped by and to the many artists who played. Check out more pictures from the whole day, below...

It's unclear if Gypsyblood's equipment was in their van, but they wrote the van's info on their Facebook page: "L618836 is the plate numbers to our van that was stolen.... missing front grill, tape headlight, body damage, cream color with hitch. Holla at us if you have any clue! thanks!" [Chicagoist]

The Get Up Kids @ Webster Hall 3/2/2011 (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Alright Chicago, ahead of us is a weekend packed with amazing shows. This is the last weekend before SXSW, and it's almost overwhelming what we have going on in just three short nights.
We recently mentioned that The Get Up Kids were in town to play two shows this weekend. Friday night they'll be at the Bottom Lounge, and Saturday they'll play Lincoln Hall. Support on both dates comes from Miniature Tigers, and Brian Bonz.
Friday night at Lincoln Hall, is a really killer lineup of Maps & Atlases, Light Pollution, and Gypsyblood. All of the bands on the bill are Chicago based acts, who are not necessarily confined to just this city anymore.
Competing with those for your attention are singer/songwriter Jonathan Richman at Metro, and The Cold War Kids supported by local up-and-comers A Lull at the Riv.
Catch Obits at Empty Bottle along with Jaill, Loose Dudes, and The People's Temple.
Crystal Castles are playing at the Riv, along with Teen Girl Fantasy.
Middle Brother, Dawes, and Deer Tick are playing at Metro, and then we've also got The Get Up Kids for the second night in a row, this time at Lincoln Hall.
In the afternoon, Hideout is having a SXSW send off for a bunch of great Chicago based bands including: Chaperone, Rabble Rabble, and Joan of Arc.
Ice Cube will be headlining the Mid with support from Mikkey Halstead.
