Shellac added to Millennium Park's New Music Mondays

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Now here's a booking that's about as far away from the Grant Park Orchestra as you can get: Legendary Chicago noise-rockers Shellac have been added to the free New Music Mondays series at Millennium Park, taking the stage after Shearwater at 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 10.

Whoo-hoo!

The other remaining Monday booking this summer is just as exciting, with reunited Chicago warped blues masters Red Red Meat headlining over Rural Alberta Advantage on Aug. 24. Visit the clunky city Web site for more information.

UPDATE:
Oops, I forgot one more of these great free gigs: Otto and NOMO at 6:30 p.m. on August 17. Thanks, Millennium Park folks, for really contributing to the summer music scene; it's a little bit harder now to say the city never gives us anything. But, um, could you please do something about this parking meter fiasco?

Shellac & RRM are 'new' ? Which Millenium's park are they playing ? The current one wasn't built in 1993.

It will be worth it to go down there for the stunned looks on the faces of the Ravinia transplants alone. Wine and cheese will be a flying.
