Take An Adventure In Modern Music With The Wire
By Sarah Cobarrubias in Arts & Entertainment on Sep 20, 2011 3:00PM
John Maus headlines the first night of Adventures in Modern Music
The whole thing kicks off Wednesday, Sept. 28 and runs through Sunday, Oct. 2. While the Bottle will play host to most of the shows, there will also be a couple of performances at the Museum of Contemporary Art and Wicker Park’s Heaven Gallery. Tickets aren’t cheap - ranging from $15 to $20 per night - but the lineup certainly is tempting.
The fest’s opening and closing nights at the Bottle are of particular interest; Wednesday night features the ambient synth-pop of John Maus and a nostalgia-loaded collaboration between lo-fi rockabilly soloist Dirty Beaches and retro rocker Frankie Rose, among others. Sunday night features Chicago rockers Pelican, supported by electro-pop local Dawn Golden & Rosy Cross, psych-pop soloist Ducktails, and drone minimalist Nicholas Szczepanik.
We also have our sights on the MCA’s show with Berlin’s Markus Popp, who goes by the moniker Oval and pumps out gorgeously glitchy, ambient noise soundscapes. Check out AIMM’s full schedule below and keep your eye on the Empty Bottle’s Tumblr for updates.
