Take a Ride to the North Side
By chicago_chris in Arts & Entertainment on Jun 11, 2004 5:49PM
Theres just too much good stuff going on this weekend to sit inside and enjoy the air-conditioning. And most of this good stuff is happening at two places: the Metro and the Music Box. So Chicagoist suggests you just camp out on the North Side for the next few days. Tonight, Metro has the MC5 reunion tour (with Lemonhead Evan Dando thrown in for good measure) and hyped young bands Franz Ferdinand tomorrow (in a sold-out show, sorry procrastinating hipsters) and the Secret Machines on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Music Box as part of their great Weekend Matinee series will show Jim Jarmuschs wonderful Canterbury Tales-inspired Mystery Train on Saturday and Sunday, and play Wes Andersons droll, under-appreciated Bottle Rocket tonight and tomorrow at midnight. Trust us, with so much hip music and deadpan comedy, youll feel cool enough without your beloved A.C.
