For The Love Of The Dirty

DYSLRAR_poster2.jpgWe all still love rocknroll...right? We’re still recovering from all that Lollapalooza coverage over here at Chicagoist HQ, but that doesn’t mean we’re too tuckered to tie into an old skool, roll-on-the-floor-in-stale-beer sort of show this weekend.

The Gallery Cabaret in Bucktown will play host to the inaugural edition of Do You Still Love Rock ‘N’ Roll?, an eleven-band, all night filth affair of rock for the love of rock. Starting at 7pm and costing a big fat NOTHING to get in, this is the grown-up version of going to see your high school friends jam out their teenage angst under the florescent lights of someone’s basement. Don’t miss We Make Thunder’s 2-minute bursts of pluckish punk or Tall Friends kicking out a pop-like take on hard driving rock. This is the kind of festival with no tiered ticketing (or tickets at all), no corporate presence, and no $7 Bud Lights...just a good opportunity to see live music because it’s a really fucking swell time.

Do You Still Love Rock ‘N’ Roll is at the Gallery Cabaret on TONIGHT | 7pm | FREE
