The Orwells @ Brooklyn's MHoW in May (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
6

Chicago-area upstarts The Orwells appear to be putting the final touches on their second full-length album. They've been tracking with producer Chris Coady at upstate New York spot Dreamland Recording Studios and Chicago's own Soma Electronic Music Studios for the past couple of months. There isn't any word on when those recordings will be released, but hopefully they'll arrive sometime this year. It'll serve as the follow-up to their 2012 breakthrough Remember When, and will come directly after a pair of 2013 EPs----Other Voices and Who Needs You.

The Orwells will keep busy this winter by hitting the road with Arctic Monkeys for a string of U.S. tour dates. They'll then tour the U.K. in late-February and will return stateside in March. They've only got a couple of dates scheduled upon their return, one of which is a performance at Lincoln Hall on April 1 with support from Twin Peaks. Tickets for their hometown show go on sale this Friday (1/17) at noon CST. UPDATE: Their full headlining tour has been announced and is listed below.

chris-hefner-the-poisoner-film

This Friday (1/10) at Lincoln Hall, local filmmaker Chris Hefner will be holding a pair of screenings for his second feature film The Poisoner. It's looking to be a rather interesting film, heavy on black and white noir visuals and a slightly macabre story. The Kafka-esque plot focuses on a married couple where the wife is contractually obligated to slowly poison her husband during their life together. The Poisoner will show at 7PM and 10PM, and both screenings will be preceded by a live musical performance from Daniel Knox, the film's composer, as well as an introduction by Hefner. Advance tickets are still available.

Check out a trailer for the film after the jump...
