Chicago's orchestral pop geniuses, Canasta are nearly ready to finally release their sophomore album, The Fakeout, The Tease And The Breather. The album, releasing May 18th, is the first on new label RWIM Chicago. To celebrate, the band has announced two album-release shows at Schubas on May 8th - where your $14 nets you entrance and a copy of the new album.
The band also has the album streaming in its entirety on their site, and a quick trip to their Audio page can get you downloads of three of the album's best - the infectious "Mexico City", the haunting "I Don't Know Where I Was Going With This", and the soulful "Reading The Map Upside Down". We could sit here all day and gush over what a fantastic success their sophomore effort is, but we are sure you would rather just be listening to it yourself, or buying tickets to the Schubas shows, or both.
Saturday, May 8th - Schubas - 7pm w/ Gregory And The Hawk opening (18+)
Saturday, May 8th - Schubas - 10:30pm w/ Brighton, MA opening (21+)
