Don’t worry, this post has nothing to do with Sufjan Stevens.
Chicago’s on my mind today, as I’m rocking out to Appreciation Night…
…and waiting for someone to tell me about last night’s Golden Smog (w/ Jeff Tweedy!) show at the Vic Theatre. Were you there? Tell us! (Also, you can watch the Sunken Treasure trailer here.)
And of course there’s Stereogum-fave Tortoise, on the road in support of A Lazarus Taxon, the new boxed set.
Tortoise – “Gamera” (MP3)
And we never do Chicago-specific ticket giveaways, so let’s fix that! The band plays two sets at the Empty Bottle on 9/29, and we have a pair of tix for the late show. Want ‘em? Just holler in the comments, and we’ll pick someone randomly at 6 PM EST today.
