Since setting up shop on the corner of Kedzie and Diversey more than a year ago Bric-a-Brac Records
has become an informal base for the local DIY garage and punk scenes. In the past handful of months the store has thrown some eye-catching in-stores
featuring talented locals (Son of a Gun
, Jimmy Whispers
) and scene favorites from around the country (Juan Wauters
, Mean Jeans). On Sunday Bric-a-Brac is throwing yet another show with Portland's Guantanamo Baywatch—they'll be joined by local groups the Wet, American Breakfast, and Best of Chicago winners the Lemons
, who are returning from a West Coast trek.
While the folks at Bric-a-Brac organized the show it'll go down at an underground space instead of at their shop. However, you can grab advance tickets and directions to the show at Bric-a-Brac. Anyone who buys an advance pass to the Guantanamo Baywatch show will also get entered in a raffle for Pitchfork Music Festival tickets. Advance tickets are $5 and the show starts at 7 PM.
