Chicago’s fortunate to have a super-supportive (nay, incestuous?) music scene, many of whom have roots back to a lil’ place called The Hideout. So who better than Hideout to host “Sending the Four Star City to the Lone Star State” party? The mini-fest is a fundraiser for all the bands travelling’ down to the Sundance Film Festival, oop, I mean South By Southwest in Austin.
Performing is a laundry list of the city’s faves, some of whom will soon be called “indie buzz bands” by Entertainment Weekly or something. A mere $10 gets you into this shizzle:
12:00 – Sybris
12:45 – Apteka
1:30 – Cameron McGill
2:15 – Mittens on Strings
3:00 – JT and the Clouds
3:45 – The Hood Internet (DJ STV SLV)
4:30 – Hollywood Holt
5:15 – Bound Stems
6:00 – Make Believe
6:45 – Reds and Blue
7:30 – Pit Er Pat
8:15 – Waco Brothers
9:00 – Tight Phantomz
9:45 – Killer Whales
10:30 – Icy Demons
11:15 – Tom Schraeder & His Ego
12:00 – Ezra Furman & the Harpoons
12:45 – Scotland Yard Gospel Choir
Rounding down, that’s like, $0.72 a band. Your door cover will let you go in & out for the whole day (like there’s anything else to do on Wabansia & Elston), but it will be packed by the end of the night.
