One night, two CD release shows for great local indie pop bands

I cover music and movies for, with stories appearing in RedEye. Sometimes with a big smiley picture.


Decisions, decisions.

What are you doing Saturday night? Here's a thought: See excellent and incredibly reliable local indie pop act Canasta (above) celebrate the upcoming release of the new "The Fakeout, The Tease and the Breather" and Schubas. Wait, that's the same night that another good Chicago pop band, My My My (below), celebrates the release of its new record, "Leather Silk," at Bottom Lounge. What to do? You could try to hit the early show at Schubas and make it to Bottom Lounge after, though that will cause you to miss some BL openers including Metromix Rock 'n' Vote alums Cobalt and the Hired Guns, who put on a fun, rollicking show.

Whatever you decide, there are definitely worse problems to have than two highly enjoyable local acts rocking at the same time.
