Upcoming Shows You Should Check Out

MUSIC MAKES THE FLOWERS GROW

I have a few friends in this crazy business. Some young, some old, but ALL devoted to their love of music. Here’s a calendar of shows that may or may not be on the usual tip sheets in the Chicago area:

April 10 Dag Juhlin & Friends Hideout

Maybe Dag (Poi Dog Pondering) has something up his sleeve at 11:59 pm? Seeing that he opens for John Wesley Harding and Eugene Mirman at Schuba’s tonite as well, here’s a guess – maybe those are some of his friends?

April 18 WorldWideRiot CJ’s

WWR return to Rockford to bring their 2-man chaos to the fringes of Chicago.

April 18 Robyn Hitchcock & Venus 3 with Dag Juhlin Epiphany

The Empty Bottle Presents series has Dag opening for Mr. Hitchcock. Now that’s a great bill in one of Chicago’s newest venues.

April 20 Kid, You’ll Move Mountains Otto’s

Corey, a former student of mine, plays with KYMM — an up & coming outfit, in DeKalb, a former home of mine, in a club owned by my friend (and frequent employer of my former sound services) Stan.

April 22 Asleep At The Javelin Empty Bottle

Sean Blythe of WorldWideRiot sits in on bass for this Wednesday night set.

April 25 Hollus Abbey Pub

An afternoon set for the International Pop Overthrow Festival. Jamison & co deliver.
