Are you a Chicago-area fan of indie, underground, and other "non-major label" music?  Do you prefer shows at smaller, intimate venues over giant arenas with overpriced drinks?  Do you love geeking out about music, finding new bands, and meeting others that share your great taste in music?  Then you're in the right place!

We'll be meeting up to see shows by mostly indie and up-and-coming bands at smaller venues like the Vic, the Riv, Metro, Lincoln Hall, Subterranean, Bottom Lounge, etc. For most event's we'll meet up at a local bar so members can get to know each other before the show.  Everyone can grab a few drinks, geek out about the band or anything else they're currently listening to, then head over to the show as a group.

Do you already go to a ton of shows and want to help out?  Contact our head organizer to find out how you can become an organizer too!
