So before I forget, and because it’s really cool, let me tell all of you Chicago readers about a great FREE show happening tomorrow night. Our good friends over at Vice, in association with VitaminWater, are putting on an UNCAPPED show tomorrow night (Thursday, April 7th) at Viaduct (3111 North Western Avenue). Show starts at 9PM and features a lineup that’s been curated by Black Lips. Mannequin Men, Lover! and Hollows will all be playing sets, all for FREE so long as you RSVP. You need to be 21+ to attend, primarily because there will also be free alcoholic beverages. You won’t find a much better deal in town, and if you’re looking for a way to kick off your weekend early, definitely check this show out. Again, you need to RSVP to get in, so go here and do so. Here’s a couple mp3s to get your interest peaked:
Mannequin Men – Boys
Mannequin Men – Grapefruit
Lover! – No More Reasons

Outside of that, here’s the rundown of today’s Pick Your Poison. Highlights include tracks from Apparat, Chicago’s own Company of Thieves, The Olympic Symphonium, and Telepathique. There’s also an interesting collaboration between Graham Coxon, Paloma Faith and Bill Ryder-Jones that’s part of a Converse series. In the Soundcloud section you’ll find a new solo track from Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard, which is pretty good.
