A Few Great Things To Do
Homeroom has some suggestions if you are looking to hear some great music over the next few nights.
Tonight (7/8,) at the Burlington, (3425 W Fullerton) Patrick O’Connor will be spinning some of the best country music you can hear in Chicago. He recommends you drink beer and whiskey while doing so, and we won’t argue with that.
On Saturday (7/10,) Coles (2338 N Milwaukee) hosts an awesome bill of Weepin’ Willows, the Dust Bunnies and Bomba Deer. Weepin’ Willows is a great Patsey Cline cover band led by Natalie Jose and her amazing voice. The Dust Bunnies are fronted by Paul Nixon, and perform beautiful, pared down soft pop. Bomba Deer is an experimental group that features Homeroom’s Seth Vanek on drums. All three groups should not be missed so show up early as Coles gets full quickly.
Finally, on Sunday, Tomorrow Music Orchestra returns with a show at Jerry’s (1938 W Division.) This will be a smaller ensemble than the 20+ that TMO has featured in the past, but the ten musicians featured this night will be fantastic. TMO is the brain child of Matthew Golombisky, and performs original jazz/classical/experimental music that is always exciting and engaging.
Fruit Tree Backpack
Former Homeroom songwriter feature and future songwriter host Eric Ziegenhagen is directing 3 short plays by Barrie Cole at The Side Project in Rogers Park called “Fruit Tree Backpack.” They are presented by Clove Productions along with Michael Maritn’s “Madeleine Remains” Fridays and Saturdays through July17th.
