Brendan Benson is coming to town this summer. He’s playing Lincoln Hall on June 28, 2012.

I’ve been in a Telekinesis mood today:

WWPJ is in two days, I might go but it’s still up in the air.

Shows in March 2012

Posted: March 2, 2012 in Shows This Month

I was too lazy to plan a trip to SXSW so I’m sticking around Chicago this month. There are plenty of shows so I’ll be fine.

  • March 3, 2012 – The Greenhornes @ Empty Bottle
  • March 9, 2012 – Maritime @ Empty Bottle
  • March 17, 2012 – Elway @ Beat Kitchen
  • March 23, 2012 – We Were Promised Jetpacks @ Bottom Lounge
  • March 25, 2012 – Cursive @ Lincoln Hall

March 3, 2012 – The Greenhornes @ Empty Bottle

I’ve never seen the Greenhornes live but I like everything on their most recent album Four Stars. They are a bluesy garage rock band out of Cincinnati. Their rhythm section also moonlight in the Raconteurs. I think this could be a fun way to spend a Saturday night.



March 9, 2012 – Maritime @ Empty Bottle

I just saw the Promise Ring last weekend so it seems like I should keep the Davey streak going. If you aren’t familiar, Davey and Dan from the Promise Ring started up Maritime after the breakup. I’ve seen them twice but I’ve never seen them headline. A weekend show at Empty Bottle, this may be my best chance.



March 17, 2012 – Elway @ Beat Kitchen

Elway is a punk band out of Colorado. I’ve seen their singer play an acoustic show once but I’ve never actually seen Elway. I’ve listened to their songs a few times and they are pretty catchy. I might end up going to this one, it’s a been a while since I’ve been to Beat Kitchen.



March 23, 2012 – We Were Promised Jetpacks @ Bottom Lounge

I saw WWPJ at Metro in November and they were great. I really like their second album,  In the Pit of the Stomach. That Metro show was pretty packed, I wonder if this one will be the same. I guess we’ll see.



March 25, 2012 – Cursive @ Lincoln Hall

Cursive has new album out, I Am Gemini, and I think it’s their best one in a while. Lincoln Hall is one of my favorite venues in Chicago so there is a good chance that I’ll end up at this one.
