Welcome to Radar Blips, where I quickly highlight three shows that catch my eye. Go see a show and if you haven’t already RSVP’d for that Thanksgiving dinner, make sure you do that ASAP.
City and Colour w/Hacienda, Daniel Romano | Wed. 11/16 | The Pageant
Years ago, my Canadian friends kept raving about Alexisonfire and those same fans have moved on to vocalist Dallas Green’s new musical adventures in City and Colour. Announced eons ago, the show’s made the jump from selling-out Blueberry Hill to the Pageant.
Lydia Loveless w/The Blind Nils | Fri. 11/18 | Cicero’s
Even though she’s young, don’t discount the young Ohio songwriter. Her punk-fused country will knock you to the ground quicker than that shot at the bar.
I Fight Dragons w/Equal Squeeze | Sun. 11/20 | The Firebird
I’m a sucker for anything remotely chiptune. The Chicago band just released their new album Kaboom! and are now hitting the road with NES systems in hand.
