Friday Afternoon Diversion

By Tankboy in Arts & Entertainment on Aug 8, 2008 8:00PM

For a while it seemed like Pegboy only played one show every two years, but recently the band has made a welcome return to regular appearances, at least in our area. We think it's fair to say they're the epitome of Chicago punk rock, especially since John Haggerty's buzz-saw guitars created the template from which a million other bands took their cues.

Pegboy plays tomorrow, August 9, at The Bottom Lounge, 1375 W Lake, 8 p.m., $12, 18+
