Tomorrow Never Knows 2011 kicks off this week, with shows at Schubas, Lincoln Hall, and Metro. Some year, I’ll be able to do something wacky like go to a show every night. This is not that year. I’ll be at the Marketa Irglova show for my one TNK 2011 stop this year. Should be good.

A note to the city of Chicago: I don’t care what kind of ridiculous budget cuts you have to make in the future. Please never, ever let go of Michael Orlove. This guy has done a whole lot to energize downtown Chicago with music of all genres. And best of all, it’s free.
