Concert Recommendation: Little Steven's Underground Garage Battle of the Bands, June 8-10, Double Door
The great thing about garage rock is that it's easy to be pretty good
even if its hard to be truly great. In other words, a battle of garage
rock bands is a guaranteed good evening of entertainment, unlike, say,
a battle of beginning violin students. And the bands playing this
three-night contest put on by Little Steven's Underground Garage (the
best nationally syndicated radio sow you'll find on any commercial
station) have already gone through an initial screening process to make
it this far. Plus, it's dirt cheap, just $5 a night.
As for great garage rock bands, even if the competitors suck, there's
still the chance to see special guests the Cynics on Wednesday night
and the Fleshtones on Thursday.
Little Steven's Underground Garage
Battle of the Bands is at the Double Door, 1572 N. Milwaukee, Chicago, IL,
773.489.3160 on Tuesday, June 8 to Thursday, June 10 at 9 p.m. each
