Holy awesome weekend ahead! On FRIDAY the Brokedowns play a show with Brickfight, Johnny Bodacious and the Bad Attitudes, and Amen and the Hell Yeahs at the EWL house ALL the way out in Wonder Lake, the instruMETAL Pelican play at the Empty Bottle (10 PM, $12 advance, $14 door), The Queers bring their soda-pop punk to Reggie’s Rock Club (7 PM, $14, all ages) with the oddly KISS-reminiscent I Love Rich. SATURDAY brings forth a psychedelic garage orgy at the Bloodline Speakeasy with Hollows, International Date Lines, Cococoma, Terrible Twos, and Maximum Wage, but if you prefer your D.I.Y. a little harder head over to Rancho Huevos for punk rock from Daily Void and No Slogan. It’s a Chicago metal spectacular(!) at Lincoln Hall (9 PM, $12 advance, $14 door, 18+) with Russian Circles and Sweet Cobra, Ronny’s Bar is having an eye/ ear/ gasm with a multi-media art show, snacks, and music from Michael Michael Motorcycle and Amen & the Hell Yeahs (in case you missed them on Friday). There’s also the HeWhoCorrupts, Inc. hardcore holiday party with 97-Shiki at the Beat Kitchen (10 PM, $5 advance, $8 door, 17+) and for $18 you can see the Verve Pipe play at Schuba’s at 9 PM. Remember them? They did that one song, but don’t confuse it with this song, or that song. I cannot believe I almost forgot to mention the Polkaholics show tomorrow at 9 PM at Quenchers, and finally, spend your SUNDAY jumping around to the tribal punk electro space rock noise of Chicago’s Mahjongg at the Hideout (9 PM, $10).
Also playing this weekend: Do Make Say Think, Arctic Monkeys, Vortis (Jim DeRogotis!), Red Channel, Implodes
