"Thousands of miles of bad road, hundreds of shows raging, questionable or both, countless broken hearts and battered eardrums, and infinite beers later," as the hard-rocking Chicago band says, Bible of the Devil will celebrate its first decade on the local rock scene on Saturday, Nov. 7, at the Cobra Lounge, 235 N. Ashland. Ironhead and High Spirits open starting at 9 p.m., and admission is free. Oh, and the band is taking requests from longtime fans at firstname.lastname@example.org, noting, "If we can remember it, we'll try to play it!"
Whether it's been as a member of Ultramagnetic MCs, as Black Elvis or as Dr. Octagon, rapper Kool Keith has long been one of the most creative, innovative and wonderfully weird forces in hip-hop. He'll perform at Reggie's Rock Club, 2109 S. State, after opening sets by Shala and Robust starting at 10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7. Tickets are $20 via www.ticketweb.com; for more information, call (312) 949-0121 or visit www.reggieslive.com.
