"Guitarist Sir Richard Bishop has been making himself pretty scarce for the past four years, releasing very little music (aside from stuff on his own CD-R label) and not touring the States at all," writes Peter Margasak. Alas, tonight he's playing the Empty Bottle tonight, along with Tash Dorji and Ryley Walker. The show starts at 9 PM.
If you're in the mood for something more punk rock, X is playing the first of four shows tonight at City Winery.
And tonight at the Siskel Center, former Reader film critic Jonathan Rosenbaum hosts a screening and lecture series that explores various forms of American comedy and satire called the Unquiet American: Transgressive Comedies From the U.S. The first film up is Harry d'Arrast's Laughter (1930).
