January Shows In Chicago

January is always a slow time of year. 2008 is looking no different. That said, the Tomorrow Never Knows Festival at Schubas from the 16-20th is going to be very interesting. John Vanderslice, Illinois Bon Iver, The M's, The Walkmen and many others will be playing......i think this will be fun. Tickets are rather cheap and I'm very curious to see when it's inevitably -10 degrees outside if people will stick pack the place. I bet they will. Tickets are on sale right now through Schubas' website. Dan Deacon will also return at the end of the month with a show at the sleepy Lakeshore Theater and another at the Metro (with Girl Talk) which will undoubtedly be a blast. Have a good New Year, everyone.

you forgot the most important show in january. 1/26, Jeff Tweedy at the Vic.

Alex said...

Thank you, I missed that one. It has been added. Just make sure you keep quiet while he is playing.

drizzle262 said...

why keep quiet when he'll just get squirrely and then serenade me with "is this the thanks i get?"

Alex said...

Or he may just go puke into a toilet.
