As we hit town this weekend to catch a pair of hard-hitting rock bands (Don Caballero and These Arms are Snakes), we’ll also venture to see a left-field production of hip hop and synth-flavored post-rock (Yoome), boundless pseudo-soundtrack work (Andreas Kapsalis Trio), and a blend of dub, reggae, electronics, and rock (The Eternals).
What We’re Seeing This Weekend: William Elliot Whitmore, Serengeti, Zing!
As we make our rounds this weekend, we plan to catch soulful folk crooner William Elliot Whitmore, multi-genre rapper Serengeti, rock/jazz/electronic quintet Zing!, and a local festival (Chicago Soundmap 2009) that asks selected composers to balance improvisation and composition.
