Got some good shows coming up in the next few months as big festivals no longer take up all the Chicago stops on bands' tours.
Matthew Dear- Friday, August 15 @ Smart Bar
Joanna Newsom w/ Chicago Symphony Orchestra- Friday, August 22 @ CSO
Andrew Bird- Wednesday, September 3 @ Millenium Park (this summer's answer to last summer's incredible Decemberist's show- get your spots early!)
Cut Copy- Wednesday, September 17 @ Metro
Calexico w/ Mariachi Luz de Luna- Thursday, September 25 @ Millenium Park (part of Music Without Borders series)
My Bloody Valentine- Saturday, September 27 @ the Aragon
Hot Chip- Sunday, September 28 @ Metro
Sunset Rubdown- Friday, October 4 @ Empty Bottle
Dan Deacon presents "Eyes Night"- Friday, October 11 @ Epiphany
Dan Deacon presents "Ears Night"- Saturday, October 12 @ Epiphany
The Notwist- Friday, October 17 @ Logan Square Auditorium
And that takes me through early fall . . . the busiest concert lineup I've had in awhile, and there's much more to be booked or other shows still under consideration.
