Here’s some notable things happening this weekend in Chicago, lovingly put together by CIMR:
Friday night there are a few notable acts coming through the area – Rodriguez, of South African fame is back for an American renaissance of sorts – his music articulates the common man’s plight whilst eschewing the typical boy loves girl pop stereotypes – for all you singer/songwriters – this guy is the nitty gritty real deal and I highly recommend this show – it’s at Schubas tonight (Friday, May 08) for $20. Also on Friday night, for all you reggae heads, head on over to Milwaukee and Damen at the Double Door – Cold Water Mystic is opening for John Brown’s Body – there’ll be enough delay pedal action that you’ll feel like your body’s leaving imprints behind you as you bob your head through the crowd.
Saturday, Makeshift Prodigy is headlining a 21+ show at Double Door, Manchester Orchestra is playing at Metro, and Headlights, a indie rock pop band from Champaigne, Illinois is opening for Subpop’s newest Swedish wonder, Loney Dear at Schubas.
