November Shows In Chicago

Things are cooling down both literally and figuratively in Chicago. Towards the end there isn't that much to look forward to but that's not say it's a bad month. I, for one, am looking forward to the Menomena/Illinois show at the Metro on the 15th. Battles and Caribou should be fun, too. Bad Brains will even be making an appearance. Hold Steady and Art Brut pictures and article from Halloween night coming soon.
