Some New Music (That's Awesome Like The Pope's Speech)

All right, sports fans, April has been, and continues to be, an excellent month. The Jayhawks won the NCAA Championship, the Cubbies are in first place, and - better yet - we have upcoming releases from the likes of The Black Angels, Tokyo Police Club, The Roots, Portishead, Langhorne Slim, and Santogold. Let's get into it:

Tokyo Police Club

*TPC are in Chi-city May 5th at The Metro.

The Black Angels

"You On The Run" - Directions to See a Ghost (Light In The Attic)

*The Angels fly through Chicago June 20th at Logan Square Auditorium.

The Roots

"Get Busy" - Rising Down (Def Jam)

*The Roots blow up the Chicago Theatre TWO TIMES - May 30th & 31st.


"Hunter" - Third (Mercury/Island)

*No US tour dates we're aware of yet for Portishead.

Langhorne Slim
"Restless" - Langhorne Slim (Kemado Records)

*Slim pays two visits to our fair city: May 28th at Schubas & May 29th at The Hideout.
