Start saving now...

Sometimes I go weeks without opening Section 3 of the Chicago Reader. There's been way too many times I've opened it up and seen way too many excellent upcoming shows to even think about being able to attend, and this week was no exception. It's probably been since the beginning of June that I've given the upcoming concert calendar a good look, as I've been booked for most of the summer. Well, I hope you've saved up because there's a lot of great stuff coming through. In addition to the Adventures in Modern Music festival, and the Merzbow show I previously mentioned we also have:

Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra - HotHouse 9/8 & 9/9
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Metro 9/20
Bloc Party - Congress Theatre 9/14
Breakestra - Abbey Pub 9/9
Broadcast - Abbey Pub 11/4 (11/4!??! 11/4? Why are they selling tickets this early??)
Built to Spill - Metro 10/8
Cut Copy - Subterranean 9/24
High on Fire - Double Door 9/4
Lyrics Born - Abbey Pub 9/30
Moistboyz - Double Door 9/16
Nine Inch Nails & Queens of the Stone Age - Allstate Arena 10/7
Oneida - Empty Bottle 8/17
Pelican - Metro 8/20
Sleater Kinney - Metro 10/6
System of a Down & The Mars Volta - Allstate Arena 9/30 (oh, if only this show was somewhere else...)

What a great group of bands. Looks like Sept. is gonna be BUSY...
