Erika Wennerstrom (of Heartless Bastards) (Doors at 8pm, $12-$15, 21+)

September 28 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Erika Wennerstrom never really considered performing as Erika Wennerstrom, despite being the heart of Heartless Bastards, the only member of the Austin-based indie rock band of which she remains the lone original member. “Half the time, people can’t even spell my first name right,” she joked.“Or pronounce my last name — they say ‘storm.’And I also like the idea of a group vibe — a team. But I’m really inspired right now and I want to keep going. If [my…

October 5 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Margaret Glaspy @ Club Congress (Doors at 8pm, $12-15, 21+) “Emotions and Math” is not simply the name of Margaret Glaspy’s new debut album.

On its surface, the title track talks about being a touring musician and figuring out how to see your partner, looking at the calendar and calculating how you’re going to spend time together. But “Emotions…

Mr. Gnome with Mute Swan ($10/$12, 21+)

October 14 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

MR. GNOME Forging beauty out of chaos with their explosive fusing of widescreen concepts and surreal psychedelia since their inception, singer/guitarist Nicole Barille, and drummer/pianist Sam Meister return with the duo hitting an undeniably new energetic peak. Layered vocals, searing guitars, and driving rhythms transport the listener into another world — or, quite literally into The Heart of a Dark Star or the “belly of the beast” as they say — which comes in and out of focus but never loses its cinematic eye. In…

“Pesticide is used to kill pests. Fratricide is when you kill your brother,” explains Darlingside’s Dave Senft. “A former teacher of ours used to say ‘kill your darlings,’ which is to say, if you fall in love with something you’ve written you should cross it out. We like that idea and we thought a good name for it might be ‘darlingcide’, but we changed the ‘c’ to an ‘s’ because we’re not super into death.” The naming of the band…

RENNIE SPARKS DISAPPEARED one afternoon while waiting for a flight at O’Hare. A middle-aged businessman, McDonald’s bag in one hand, rolling-bag dragged by the other— walked up to Rennie and, without pause, turned and sat down on her lap. A second later his french fries and rolling bag were on the floor and he was sputtering apologies, insisting he’d seen an empty chair. Rennie often has trouble with automatic faucets ignoring her waving hands but this unexpected airport invisibility was…
