Chicago Mixtape Show @ Empty Bottle

Not only can Chicago Mixtape deliver a sound mixtape every week, but apparently they can also put together a great show. This Friday, May 27th, at Empty Bottle they will host four bands, two of which are Chicago-based Ornery Little Darlings and Continental Breakfast. The other two bands are great, but I am surprised to see Michigan's The Juliets and Milwaukee's The Fatty Acids. The show is going to be awesome, but I thought Chicago Mixtape would deliver a Chicago line-up. Nonetheless, the show is free if you email rsvp@emptybottle.com, and $8 if you don't.

In preparation for the show you should check out The Juliets 2010 free album here and Continental Breakfast's free 2010 ep Seasons here. Also, I posted this video when it was released back in Feb 2010, but Ornery Little Darlings "Run From The Gun" is a great video. Their new album, Get After It, will be released on June 1st and you can get a taste of in the new video below.


Gypsyblood "Take Your Picture"

Gypsyblood has released their video for the track "Take Your Picture" which appears on their debut album Cold in the Guestway.



Republic of Lights @ Lincoln Hall

Last fall, Republic of Lights released their debut album, Go Rococo, and gave it away for free. The album is a perfect example of indie pop. The sound is driven by piano, solid drums, and intricate guitar melodies.

Republic of Light is performing on May 28th at Lincoln Hall.


Last Minute Plans: Jennifer Hall @ Schubas

There is something special and honest and exciting about a local singer/songwriter creating a sound and standing on stage and delivering. One of my favorite local singers right now is Jennifer Hall. She has an angelic voice, but it is the passion that she delivers that is really captivating.

Jennifer Hall will be performing at Schubas on May 24th (tonight!) at 7pm.


White Mystery is Blowing Up!

It is always refreshing to see a hard-working, local band finally get the praise they always deserved. White Mystery just released their sophmore album Blood & Venom, and have been burning up NYC this past week. They are returning home this week and will be performing an instore at Reckless Records on May 28th. They are also playing at MoCA on June 3rd and Do Division Street Fest on June 5th.
