Upcoming Shows

My show calendar hits its stride in the month of March. Averaging one show per week this month will be tons of fun... missing out on Matisyahu the other night was just the tip of the iceberg.

Names, dates, places:

5. Clap Your Hands, Say Yeah - 3/30, The Bottleneck
4. Wilco - 3/21, Uptown Theater
3. Arctic Monkeys - 3/18, The Metro, Chicago!
2. Railroad Earth - 3/8, The Bottleneck

I'm extremely excited for all four shows. I missed Railroad Earth's set at Wakarusa last summer (to see North Mississippi All-Stars and nap on the lawn) and reports were that it was one of the weekend's best. I've been wearing out the Arctic Monkeys lately. At just twenty years old, man, they get it. I can't wait to see them live in Chicago (on St. Patty's Day weekend no less) and then tear down the Windy City afterwards. You can't go wrong with Wilco and this will be my second time seeing them live. Besides, they are the namesakes of this blog (or is that the other way around?). Lots to say about Clap Your Hands, Say Yeah, but I'll save that for its own post. Needless to say, I'm very interested to see what their live show is like.

If I still have anything left, I might go check out the Soledad Brothers on March 31 at the Bottleneck. I haven't heard much from them, besides being name-checked by Jack White and the Black Keys, so if anyone has any input make sure to leave it in the comments. I like what I have heard, though, so I'm likely going.
