Last Minute Plans: Mickey @ The Whistler

“From the dirty streets of Chicago to your bedroom”, this is what newcomers Mickey screamed over the top of their gritty guitar riffs for their recent HoZac Records radio spot. Whether or not Mickey’s view of Chicago is grounded in reality or not is not really the point, their back-alley garage punk sound is what has landed them on label that is also home to the like minded blog darlings The Smith Westerns. With scream-sing vocals from Mac Blackout, aggressive drumming from Christmas Woods, or the contribution from Mick Swagger, Dirty D, or Brent, the band is playing an angle, but has the talent to match.

HoZac announced this morning via twitter that they are releasing the bands debut 7” “She’s So Crazy”, and I would image they would have copies with them as they take the stage tonight at The Whistler for The CHIRP Radio Benefit. Modern Primitives are also performing tonight. The show starts tonight 9:30pm.

The Greatest Show Ever

How can you possibly not attend something billed as the greatest show ever? Well, if you don’t want to take the bills word for it the bands involved have given you several incentives to dig a little deeper. The first thing you need to do is visit the show's website (yes, it’s a website dedicated to just this show). Once you are at the site you will be able to download free albums from three of the four bands involved. Who are the bands involved you ask? Picture Books, Venna, Crayolala, and Kid, You’ll Move Mountains. You can find eps from Venna and Picture Books, and the full-length debut from KYMM all for free. Also, on the site you will find a ticket that will grant you free admission if you arrive before 9pm. If you need a little more from Picture Books, a live session from them was posted today over at Coach House Sounds. What more could you want really? 

Four great local bands, January 2nd, at The Metro for free (before 9pm). It truly is the greatest show ever.

Brendan Losch "White Christmas"

As I begin to receive a few Christmas covers from Chicago musicians I feel as though I have missed an opportunity to do something bigger. Maybe next year there will be a Deli Christmas song project or something. Regardless, the Christmas spirit has infected Brendan Losch and I am happy to share with you his interpretation of the classic "White Christmas".
