two classic great “shows” are coming to chicago

Every Friday, I check out the Early Warnings section of the Chicago Reader. Despite my intense dislike for the City of Chicago (not necessarily the people in it, but the physical city, itself), it is the closest place that gets bands Madison may not get.

I noticed today that there are two must-see, classic acts coming in the next few months.

Afrika Bambaataa will be playing at the Smart Bar next week Friday (Aug 29). Tickets are still available, and if you’re at all a student of music, or just want to see a good, non-stop, high energy spectacle, make your way to check this out. Here’s a sample of what goes on…

The other spectacle on the other side of the spectrum – GWAR (you really should click through for this site) – comes to the House of Blues on October 30. GWAR is a band whose fame comes not at all from their music, but their intense gore-fest of a stage show. Their live act is legendary, and though I have no taste for their music at all, I’d go in a second if the times and logistics all work out.

Here’s a taste of what’s in store for anyone willing to leave their comfort zone…
