Old-school two-tone ska band the English Beat visits Double Door with fellow UK veterans Bad Manners tonight. Snazzily dressed fellows will undoubtedly be skanking their asses off and sweating through their suspenders.
Unsane disciples KEN Mode will be rattling skulls with their metallic noise rock at Metal Shaker on Saturday night. I seriously can't recommend these guys enough. When I saw them at Ronny's back in May, I was sure my eardrums were actually bleeding. That's always a good sign, right? They're from Winnipeg (that's in Canada), the drummer plays wearing nothing but bicycle shorts, and the cowboy-hatted singer looks like he's trying to swallow the microphone.
On Sunday Ronny's is hosting an all-ages matinee show (a recent and welcome development at the Logan Square dive) headlined by Ceremony, a San Francisco thrash/hardcore outfit schooled in the canon of classic bands like Youth of Today and Chain of Strength. Given 'em a listen and then try to tell me the singer doesn't sound like Ray Cappo.
