The eagerly awaited new CHIRPradio.org site will launch later this month, and we’re throwing a party to celebrate! We’ve put together a lineup featuring some of our favorite local bands for a show at Lincoln Hall on Thursday, November 29.
Here’s the bill:
CHIRP DJs will spin in between sets. The show is 21 and over, and doors open at 8pm. Proceeds benefit CHIRP, and you can buy tickets here . We hope you can join us and celebrate the launch or our new site!
CHIRP welcomes Death Grips to their show at Bottom Lounge this Tuesday, November 20. The band somehow parlayed their confrontational brand of punk-rap into a contract with Epic Records earlier this year, with whom they planned to release two albums in 2012. But plans changed when they leaked the second of those albums, NO LOVE DEEP WEB, via their own website in October. They have since been dropped from Epic, but have continued with their tour schedule.
Rapper MC Ride (aka Stefan Burnett) is joined by his production team onstage, Andy Morin and Zach Hill, on keyboards and drums. Not many production teams have the former drummer for Hella behind the kit, so their live act promises to live up to the visceral mania of their albums. Join us at Bottom Lounge to see them and New York rapper and performance artist Mykki Blanco, who will open the show which starts at 9 PM. Go to bottomlounge.com for more info.
The Brooklyn-based duo, Matt & Kim brought their energetic, packed set to the Congress Theater last week for what they called "the biggest crowd at a show this tour." They plowed through a 90-minute set with such ease and passion. M&K both stated how much they looked forward to this stop on the tour. Matt was amazed how it seemed like just yesterday they were playing basement shows in Chicago.
CHIRP welcomes Henry Rollins for the second and third nights of his “Long March” spoken-word tour at the Old Town School of Folk Music on Friday and Saturday, November 16th and 17th. Though he’s best known for his singing career, Rollins started going on spoken-word tours while he was a still a singer with Black Flag. While he would continue on to successful solo work, his audio memoir of his days in that band, Get in the Van, would earn him a Grammy award. His performances have evolved to include anecdotes from his travels to countries across the world, some of which have been captured in a new book of photography and writing from Rollins, Occupants.
Both the Friday and Saturday shows begin at 8 PM. For more information, visit oldtownschool.org.
