  • February 25, 2012 – The Promise Ring @ Metro

February 7, 2012 – Craig Finn @ Empty Bottle

I believe this is Craig Finn’s first solo show in Chicago. He just released his debut solo album to some mixed reviews. I really like what I’ve heard from his solo album. I think it’ll be interesting to see how the music comes across live. I know this isn’t going to be as loud as a Hold Steady show but Empty Bottle is a little more intimate than the venues THS usually plays so I think it’ll balance out.



February 10, 2012 – Other Lives @ Lincoln Hall Other Lives are hitting up Chicago on a headlining tour before they go on tour with Radiohead. I haven’t seen them play in almost 3 years. They are kind of a quiet, laid back band but I think that works well in a venue like Lincoln Hall. I still haven’t bought tickets to this one but I think it could be a good one.



February 16 & 17, 2012 – Sharon Van Etten @ Lincoln Hall I’ve been meaning to see Ms. Van Etten for a while. She’s playing two shows at Lincoln Hall on a Thursday and a Friday. She just released a new album that has gotten favorable reviews so try to see her if you can.



February 18, 2012 – The Jealous Sound, Into It. Over it @ Subterranean

I’m a pretty big fan of the Jealous Sound. I haven’t seen them since they opened for Sunny Day Real Estate back in 2010. I just heard about this show so now I have to start convincing people to go. Into It. Over It is opening, I’m not too familiar with their music but my friends seem to like them.



February 25, 2012 – The Promise Ring @ Metro

I’ve been really excited about this one ever since it was announced. I love the Promise Ring but I’ve only seen them once and that was back in 1998. I’m trying not to get my expectations too high but I think this will be one of the better shows of the year.
