Rick Rizzo Recommended Soundboard

When: Tue., Nov. 27, 9 p.m. 2012

Rick Rizzo has been one of Chicago's most reliably satisfying musical presences for nearly 30 years, fronting incendiary rock quartet Eleventh Dream Day, sparring with fellow guitarist Tara Key in their instrumental duo, and guesting with the likes of Red Red Meat, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, and the Boxhead Ensemble. Even when he's the man up front, he's always a team player, so it's a bit of a surprise to see him stepping out for his third gig under his own name in as many months. The first two were completely solo affairs; playing two sets a night, he revisited old Eleventh Dream Day songs, stripping them down and stretching them out, and tried out new material that might turn up on the band's next record. EDD drummer Janet Bean will join Rizzo for this one, so if you're wondering what that next record might sound like, here's a great chance to find out. —Bill Meyer
