Local Natives Add Free Empty Bottle Show To Chicago Visit

2013_3_LocalNatives.jpg So, we mentioned earlier this week that Local Natives are stopping by The Vic Thursday night as part of a tour in support of their sophomore release, Hummingbird. But tough luck, because that show is now sold out. Don’t get too bummed, though, because the Los Angeles indie-rockers have also scheduled a free show for the same day at the much more intimate Empty Bottle.

The Bottle show, which is presented by Bud Light and XRT, is free, but there’s no RSVPing to this one—it’s first-come, first-serve. And it’s an early show. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. and music starts at 5:30 p.m., but we can guarantee it’s going to be a tight fit, so you may want to sneak out of work early for this one.

You can also try your luck at winning guaranteed entry by entering this raffle through XRT,

Local Natives play Thursday, March 21 at the Empty Bottle, 1035 N Western, 5:30 p.m., free, 21+
