Pick Your Poison: Wednesday 8-29-12
Another week, and another Chicago show coming up that I’d like to tell you about. I try to help out bands that could use a little extra promotion to get the word out that they’re coming to town, and today I’m talking about The Rocketboys. The Texas band have established themselves pretty well the last few years, and their newest album Build Anyway has been getting very strong reviews. Let me encourage you to listen to their song “Bloodless” and judge for yourself. Anyways, they’ll be rolling through Chicago in support of the new record, playing at Ace Bar on Tuesday, Sept. 4th with Bearcat opening. The show starts at 8pm and tickets are $8. You can buy them in advance here. Check these guys out before they’re playing big venues with poor sight lines. Now let’s tackle today’s Pick Your Poison. I’ll advise you to download songs from Courtship, Exquisite Corps, Jets Overhead, Pan, A Shoreline Dream, Why? and Wovenhand. In the Soundcloud section, don’t miss streaming songs from Flock of Dimes, Parenthetical Girls and Win Win.
