• Mike Reed’s People, Places & Things

Mike Reed’s People, Places & Things will play its second local gig of 2011—and just its third anywhere this year—this Sunday night at the Hungry Brain. The show is the final installment in the venue’s yearlong celebration of the Sunday Transmission series’s tenth anniversary. The group’s two saxophonists are no longer in Chicago—Tim Haldeman lives in Ann Arbor and Greg Ward lives in New York—so wrangling the members for gigs take more effort now. (Bassist Jason Roebke has thankfully stayed here.) This year was the first since 2008 that the group didn’t put out a new record.
