Free Concerts at the Auto Show

There's nothing better than getting somethin' for nothin'. Well, maybe driving with the top down while blaring music, but that won't happen for at least a couple more months. At the 2006 Chicago Auto Show this year there will be free concerts taking place at the Pontiac Garage. We missed last night's concert with the Bo Deans, but tonight on a first-come first-serve basis the Redwalls will play at 7 pm.

Two more shows will take place next week, as well. On Thursday, February 16th Hawthorne Heights will take the stage at 8 pm and on Friday the 17th it's OK GO with an after work show at 6 pm. The trek down to the Auto Show is quite far, but looking at all those pretty cars is a nice way to remind ourselves why we work - to accumulate things. The Pontiac Garage will be giving away Sox Opening Day tickets and NCAA Men's Final Four tickets every night of the Auto Show.
