Daymaker makes sloppy punk For Chicago

Tue 12/19, 8:30 PM, Empty Bottle, 1035 N. Western $7

    Daymaker makes sloppy punk For Chicago
    "Condos are killing my country / my city gets nothing / burning like a rash from my undies / my city gets nothing," Erin Delaney warbles before unleashing her full-throttle yowl on "Condos," the anti-gentrification single Chicago's Daymaker's released in June. The band comes staggering in, sloshing loose feedback wails around the song's can't-get-it-out-of-your-head indie-pop hook.

Dreamy post-punk trio Dehd celebrate the release of two records in one

Fri 12/15, 9 PM, Empty Bottle, 1035 N. Western, $8

    Dreamy post-punk trio Dehd celebrate the release of two records in one
    One of the best local releases of 2016 was the debut self-titled tape from Dehd on the prolific Maximum Pelt Records. The trio of guitarist-vocalist Jason Balla (of Ne-Hi and Earring), bassist-vocalist Emily Kempf (of Heavy Dreams and Veil), and stand-up, cymbal-less drummer Eric McGrady explored dreamy, hazy postpunk with beautiful vocal interplay; simple, plunky guitar; and a dark, behind-the-beat throb.

    The Third Coming of the Jesus Lizard
    The Jesus Lizard are back . . . again. Chicago's great 90s noise-rock agitators made their first return to the stage in 2009, ten years after splitting up. Their original label, Touch and Go, accompanied that reunion with Inch-a Record Store Day exclusive that repackaged remastered versions of all nine Jesus Lizard seven-inches it had released.

  • This is awesome! Saw them at Lounge Ax a million years ago. Maybe they will play Riot Fest!!! Instead of deja vu returning to their old stomping grounds in Humboldt Park and bringing their huge fan base here to support local businesses they'll bring 'em to Douglas Park.

Katie Von Schleicher sweetens the disappointment in her lyrics with honeyed melodies

Sun 12/10, 9 PM, Empty Bottle, 1035 N. Western, $15

    Katie Von Schleicher sweetens the disappointment in her lyrics with honeyed melodies
    There's an elliptical quality to the lyrics on Katie Von Schleicher's terrific full-length debut, Shitty Songs (Ba Da Bing). She assays various strains of romantic and personal disconnect, using words to underscore frayed connections and muddied communication, but her honeyed, soulful vocals and the rich arrangements that surround them fill out the otherwise moody pictures with dazzling color.

Local Volunteer Opportunities

Hi neighbors,

I need a new local volunteering gig, bigly. I had previously volunteered with Tree House Humane Society for over ten years, but after their Bucktown branch closed this year, I've been adrift (new location is too far away, boohoo).

Any ideas on progressive organizations in the neighborhood that need a helping hand (one-off or ongoing)? I'm at Division and Leavitt and would prefer something within walking distance or via a bus. My interests are pretty varied -- social justice, animals, children, the elderly, etc.

I've checked out Volunteer Match and One Brick but both were kind of slim pickings for near-by volunteering.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

  • Hello! I work with a few neighborhood school gardens, primarily in humboldt but I am hoping to get one in at Sabin elementary at Leavitt and Hirsch. You could help with that process and help garden after it is installed. If you love gardening, we would love to have you!

  • HI Suzanne,

    Whiskers & Tails is located in Humboldt Park. We don't have a brick and mortar since we are a Trap-Neuter-Return organization. However, we are always looking for volunteers to help make phone calls, volunteer at our events, etc. You can check us out on facebook here https://www.facebook.com/whiskersandtailsrescuefoundation/ and our website www.whiskersandtailsfoundation.org . We would love the help!

  • Thank you so much for these suggestions. I will check them out further post-holidays!
