I don’t know about you but I am so tired of hearing about SXSW (South by Southwest). Why anyone would go to Austin, Texas is beyond me. Texas, as a state, is a place I have no desire to return to. Attending overcrowded shows with a bunch of dicks. Hearing Bob Geldof bad-mouth American bands. Tex-Mex. Not interested.
Wait a week and catch most of these bands in our fine city. Chicago Rocks! and someone has finally put this in a nice bus tour.
Now we’re talking!
From their website http://www.chicagorockstour.com/ is the following:
CHICAGO MUSIC TOUR, INC, in conjunction w/ SCHUBAS TAVERN, introduces its inaugural bus tour, CHICAGO ROCKS 1980-2002, SAT APRIL 2.
CHICAGO ROCKS tells how Chicago created much of the most vital “alternative” rock, including the industrial dance of Wax Trax Records, pop grunge of Smashing Pumpkins, Girly Sound of Liz Phair, and alt-country of Wilco.
Our 2nd tour, CHICAGO ROCK STARS focuses on the above stars plus Ministry, Urge Overkill, Material Issue, Veruca Salt, Local H, Michael McDermott & Poi Dog Pondering. It debuts SAT, APRIL 23.
