On the heels of the raucus success of last month's Tapes n' Tapes show at Subterranean, the kind folks at our sister publication Chicago Innerview Magazine have put together a fine stable of talent for the second edition of their showcase. Headlining the ticket on Friday May 26th at Beat Kitchen are local popsters Paper Airplane Pilots . From the same orbit of friends that produced The Changes and The M's, The Pilots might just be more fun that either of those formidable names. Also on the ticket is Brooklyn's Lowry , whose lush, moving songs fall somewhere between chamber pop and neo-folk. In case you haven't read one of my numerous posts about these guys, their album "Awful Joy " is one of the best I've heard in years. Also from Brooklyn, The Bowmans will kick off the evening with the soulful harmonies of twin sisters Sarah and Claire Bowman. Sarah was just asked to tour as a member of cult-legends Rasputina , and The Bowmans will be opening for many of those shows as well. We'll be previewing each band with a series of posts over the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for some MP3's courtesy of your local Ghost.
All in all that's some pretty restaurant-quality music, and I can't think of a better way to spend seven bucks. Well, perhaps a massage on the beach in Phuket, but then there's the whole jetlag thing.... Anyway, pick up tickets here. As per the usual, any Chicago Innerview event features the patented Hot Shit Dance Moves of erstwhile Chicago Innerview Publisher Jay Gentile....free of charge.
