Former Belle’s Last Hurrah Before Hitting the Studio at KFN June 6

The year and a half of playing and promoting songs from their Sounds from the Underground EP is coming to an end for Former Belle since tonight will be their last full band show before they step into the studio to work on their first full-length Cathedral. And they’re set to make sure that Kung Fu Necktie will be abuzz with plenty of new tunes. Former Belle’s biggest moment of the year thus far has been touring Europe with Peasant in support of the folk crooner’s latest Bound for Glory. And their good friend will be returning the favor before he packs his bags for a move to NYC. Add in an opening set from Bridge Underwater, and you have an entertaining hump day hang. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - Bill McThrill


Peasant Celebrates Album Release at WCL Mar. 29

Bound for Glory Cover Art

Damien DeRose, a.k.a Peasant, has gained critical acclaim for his previous two releases, especially the highly regarded Shady Retreat. But the upcoming follow-up, Bound for Glory might be Peasant’s most complete and multi-layered release to date (it has already gained DeRose some airtime on BBC Radio and MTV Studios). When he celebrates the album’s release at World Café Live tonight, it will also be the local debut of his new full band lineup that features members of Former Belle and Sparta Philharmonic. This will also be Former Belle’s final local show before heading out on a European tour, so it will be a good time to hear some of the new material that they’ve been recording in the studio. The evening will also feature a rare acoustic solo performance from Chris Archibald of Illinois. World Café Live, 3025 Walnut St., 8pm, $10 + processing fees, all ages - Bill McThrill
