It looks like a quiet week, but I find myself strangely busy. I’ll be checking out the Laura Marling show tomorrow night, and Jerome Holloway’s show on Friday. I saw him open for Nneka in February and thought he was really good, so I’m looking forward to seeing what he does with a headlining spot. Saturday also has some strong line-ups of local bands, both at Bottom Lounge and at the Beat Kitchen.

Good morning to everyone from snowy Chicago. I got to test out my new winter boots this morning, so I guess I can’t lie to myself anymore; it really is winter now. It’s a pretty small concert list this week, although there are tons and tons of classical and holiday shows going on this week. […]
