Chicago Nightclubs At Noon



Originally uploaded by _nickd
I finally had a chance to drop in on the Audible Architecture summer series at Pritzker Pavilion. Affiliated with Pitchfork Media's recent summer festival, it's a lineup of lunchtime shows featuring some really talented bands in a breathtaking, almost surreal, downtown setting. There was no way I was going to miss seeing Tortoise take advantage of the premium sound system of the Pritzker, a system usually reserved for the Grant Park Symphony Orchestra. And I was not disappointed; despite rainy weather Tortoise really wowed a reverent crowd with intricate, beautiful songs (including some new material). There are still a few shows left, and I can't think of a better way to spend lunch. Highly recommended!

August 11th - Califone

August 18th - The Ex with Getatchew Mekuria

August 25th - Habibe Koite & Bamada

All shows 12:15pm-1:30pm
