Upcoming Shows - Week ending January 24th

You have it easy this week, Chicago. It is a slow week at the local venues, and you can actually get in for free. We thought about recommending former New Kids On The Block member Joey McIntyre's show at Lincoln Hall tomorrow, but we're still too new for jokes like that...

Friday, January 22nd - Metro - The Dirty Diamonds, White Mystery, Post Honeymoon, Pet Lions - 9 pm - $6 in advance, $9 day of show

From the moment last.fm graced my earbuds with "Roman History", I became a fan of Chicago's Pet Lions. Stop what you're doing, give it a listen, and good luck resisting. Their breezy indie pop is the kind of addictive, melodic bliss that makes you feel like Spring is right around the corner. The band takes a break from putting the finishing touches on their debut for their coming out party at Metro. Local blog, Gapers Block is sponsoring the show - and you can even get in free if you arrive before 9pm with a flyer at Pet Lions' site. There is no valid excuse for missing this one.
