Here are some shows to check out around Illinois this week:
The Keep (Chicago, Ill.)
9 p.m. | $5 | Tuesday, November 24
Chicago bands Ratboys and Bedrooms Sons have spent the majority of November out west on tour. Friends Coaster and Cashed Out welcome them home Tuesday night at The Keep. Be sure to join them at this new DIY space. Bring your friends, your surfboards, and your dancing shoes. Message Bigg Nibbler for the address.
Painted Zeros (NYC) / Perfume / Swimsuit Addition / New Drugs
Cole’s Bar (Chicago, Ill.)
8 p.m. | FREE | 21+ | Saturday, November 28
Brooklyn’s own Painted Zeros come through Chicago on Saturday. The shoegaze band is the brain-child of Katie Lau, but perform live as a three-piece. Their most recent album, Floriography, was released in October of this year via Don Giovanni Records. Joining them that night are a few of Chicago’s finest garage acts in New Drugs, Swimsuit Addition, and Perfume.
