The 2020 edition of Chicago club Empty Bottle's annual free winter outdoor block party Music Frozen Dancing happened on Saturday (2/22) outside the club on the corner of Western & Cortez. Temperatures hovered around the freezing point but headliners Hot Snakes kept things toasty, with help from Philly's Pissed Jeans, post-punk vets Crash Course in Science, HideThe Hecks, and Hitter. Check out pictures from the whole day, which raised money for the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, in the gallery above.

Hot Snakes, who are releasing a series of 7" singles this year, stuck around to play the afterparty inside Empty Bottle later Saturday night.

Pissed Jeans will be in Brooklyn to play Saint Vitus on March 27 with Ice Balloons and Not Amused.
