| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

For the fourth year since the tragic car accident that claimed the life of local musician John Glick (the Returnables) and his friends Doug Meis (the Dials, EXO) and Michael Dahlquist (Silkworm), friends and family are gathering to celebrate his life with a show at the Empty Bottle, 1035 N. Western, starting at 10 tomorrow night. The performers include the Methadones, Nervous Fingers, the Negligents and the Coronados, tickets are $8 and proceeds benefit the John Richard Glick Memorial Fund, which helps musicians in need. For more info, call (773) 276-3600 or visit www.emptybottle.com.

Whether you consider her the next great Swedish pop act since Peter, Bjorn and John (whose Bjorn Yttling produced her acclaimed debut "Youth Novels") or that country's answer to Bjork, Lykke Li is well worth a listen, and you can catch her live now as the indie buzz builds when she performs at Metro, 3730 N. Clark, after openers Wildbirds & Peacedrums starting at 8 p.m. tomorrow. Tickets are $18; call (773) 549-4140 or visit www.metrochicago.com.
