The Double Door, a rock club rich in Chicago history, welcomed four local groups last Friday night for an evening of music that can only be described as heavy. Wicker Park’s Double Door housed a bunch of transplants from a neighborhood a little farther north west, as all four bands have at least a few members (and fans) from the Logan Square area. Competing with a number of summer Chicago street festivals this weekend, I was pleased to see Killer Moon, Rabble Rabble, Creepy Band, and Plastic Crimewave Syndicate playing to an ample sized crowd.
