Win Tickets to See The Thermals and Chin Up Chin Up Next Week

2007_10_thermals.jpgThe Thermals have always sounded kind of like Superchunck to us, only tighter and way more political. In our opinion, those are all good things.Their appearance at this year's Wicker Park Summerfest was a highlight amongst the live acts performing, and last year's The Body, The Blood, The Machine remains a pretty electrifying punk rock diatribe.

Opening the show is Chicago's Chin Up Chin Up. We've written about them in the past, and we're always happy when we get a chance to see them locally. Their last album, This Harness Can't Ride Anything, displayed the group's growth and showcased a solid selection of post-punk indie pop more focused than the tracks on their debut.

Both bands play an all-ages show at Logan Square Auditorium next Wednesday, October 24. Tickets are still available, but we've got our hands on a free pair for some lucky Chicagoist reader. Enter today for your chance to win!
