4/2 Sigur Ros @ UIC Pavillion - Brett suggested getting together for this amazing soundscape scandinavian (iceland still counts, right?) band. i've seen them once before. it was like indoor fireworks accompanied by dreamlike music. i'm not exaggerating people. it really is that good. but don't just take my word for it, watch this video of a live performance: http://youtu.be/kQsPv4FMyLg

4/13 mason jennings @ SPACE (evanston) - lisa recommended this show in evanston. i watched some of his videos, and i'd have to say that he sounds like a modern day bob dylan. his songs are personal, easy to relate to, and he even has a little big of an inflection in his voice some times that reminds me of dylan. he's certainly an artist in his own right, though. i really dig his song "be here now," and even the video is pretty cool (http://youtu.be/wa_4wV2GDfQ).
if you dig it, then add your name to the suggestion list, and make it happen!

4/13 big dog mercer @ bottoms up - Marty recommended this show at bottoms up in Lansing, IL. i mean, seriously, you can't go wrong with blues. it's a saturday night. it will be a week after your bracket blew up completely, and the cubs will already be 10 games back. you're gonna need some blues music. there's no cover, too, so more money for your and your liver.
4/24 mindless self indulgence @ HOB - Cy recommended this upcoming show at the house of blues. i can imagine how nuts this show is going to be. i expect that the fans on the floor will be putting the security to work. if you like rock, you will *not* be disappointed by this show at the HOB. this video is what makes me think it's going to be crazy: http://youtu.be/smoLvMukdNA
