Girls @ Bowery Ballroom (more by Ryan Barkan)
Somewhat randomly, Thursday night (9/29) in Chicago has a bunch of very big shows. What will you choose?
Girls play a sold out one at Lincoln Hall with support from Nobunny and Papa. Check out pictures and read a review from one of the two recent NYC shows, HERE. If you didn't score tickets, they are also playing a 2PM in-store at Reckless Records.
Those are probably the big four (in our mind), but it doesn't stop there...
Japanther, The Unstoppable Death Machines, Terrior Bute, and Lechuguillas will play Panchos. Tickets are still available.
Carlos Giffoni, Grouper, Starlicker, and Vockah Redu & The Cru will play Empty Bottle as part of Adventures in Modern Music. Tickets are still available.
Dar Williams and Joan Osbourne will play Park West. Tickets are still available.
What else? What are you gonna do?
