Show: Raise the Red Lantern “It’s easy to compare Raise the Red Lantern to Baroness or Mastodon, but it’d be a mistake to dismiss them as imitators—they’re on track to bloom into something unique, and if you care at all about Chicago metal you’re gonna want to be paying attention when that happens,” writes Kevin Warwick.

Dinner: Kitsch’n on Roscoe For those who were teens in the 70s, Kitsch’n is sure to summon either a nostalgic smile or a cynical smirk. One Rater characterizes the decor as “yank-you-back-to-grade-school, featuring lunch boxes, GT plastic skateboards, TV trays, and a ‘Swedish Massager’ on our table.”
