WEEKLY AGENDA: Tuesday 8/27 to Saturday 8/30


You guys, I don’t know how to feel about Door #3, the faux-basement venue beneath Double Door. On one hand, it’s nice to see shows in a low-key atmosphere with cans of cheap beer that doesn’t smell like dirty feet soaking in a festering Blatz swamp. On the other hand, it’s fucked up for a major douchebag Wicker Park venue to co-opt DIY aesthetics and integrity. Should we go see Slushy, The Jollys, and Grosse Pointe there on Thursday anyway? Which do we care about more, punk rock purity or having a fun time?

Wednesday, August 27th

The Empty Bottle

The Cellphones, Vaya, Bigjoy, The Avantist

The lead singer of The Cellphones is a witchy babe with a big, big voice. They do a sort of skronky spooky post-punk thing, and they even made a Haunted House soundtrack once. If you ever wished Stevie Nicks would drop in for a set with your favorite noise rock band, you should go see this show.
