Show: Gunslingers “This French power trio—bassist Matthieu Canaguier, drummer Antoine Hadhoannou, and guitarist/front man Gregory Raimo, a snarling, declaiming shaman who also maintains a solo sideline as GR—don’t come out of any particular “scene,” but they bring the energy of many to their roiling, high-volume mania,” writes Monica Kendrick. They play a free in-store at Permanent Records this evening prior to headlining the Empty Bottle tomorrow.
6 PM, Permanent Records, 1914 W. Chicago, 773-278-1744, free
Dinner: Mr. Brown’s Lounge “While the menu is mostly Jamaican fare, concessions to the bar crowd like chicken tenders and onion rings also make appearances. So I was little surprised to discover that the food is top-notch,” writes Julia Thiel.
