"Bastardgeist is the brainchild of Chicago-based musician Joel Midden. Through layers of kalimba, processed vocals, and a handful of circuitous samples and found percussion he has crafted a bedroom opus of singular vision and ambitious design." You know who else crafts bedroom opuses of singular vision and ambitious design. Adam Busch and Pierce Doerr, better known as two-thirds of Sonoi. Bastardgeist with Busch & Doerr perform tonight at the Whistler, starting at 10 p.m. (2421 N. Milwaukee)


The Fountainhead opened its doors one year ago today. From 4-7 p.m. today they'll be offering a selection of free passed appetizers as a thank you to all of their customers. They'll also introduce a special Anniversary cocktail created for this evening and Phil Kuhl, Cicerone & Beer Director, will be breaking out some good stuff like Founders 08' Kentucky Breakfast Stout and Brooklyn Black Ops on bottles and cask aged Three Floyds Zombie Dust & Half Acre Ginger Twin. Everything is $1 off all night. (1970 W. Montrose)
