MONDAYOOZING WOUND Seeing how it's Metal Monday, in cool people's camps at least, it's fitting that Oozing Wound plays this evening. Featuring two members of the now defunct Cacaw (drummer Kyle Reynolds and guitarist Zack Weil), Oozing Wound will have old-school thrash fans elated with their massive riff barrage, which should also appeal to those who currently dig High on Fire. Their October 2012 release, Vape and Pillage, is head-bang ready with cuts like the careening "Two Forces" or the thunderous "Sustained by Hatred (Rambo 4)." Also appearing are Running and Austin's Spray Paint. (Richard Giraldi) 9:00 p.m. Monday, 4/22. Burlington. 21+. $5.
TUESDAYAMI SARAIYA Eclectic singer-songwriter Ami Saraiya's compositions span the musical spectrum from chamber pop with a bit of Eastern mysticism to blues rock and big band. No doubt Saraiya will showcase her jazzy and soulful vocals through some of her new material tonight. Also appearing are instrumentalist Jared Bartman and local folk singer Ty Maxon. (Audrey Leon) 9:00 p.m. Tuesday, 4/23. Empty Bottle. 21+ $8.
WEDNESDAYTHE BINGERS The Bingers landed on our 13 Chicago Bands to Watch in 2013 because they're just so much fun. Their lo-fi garage rock is equally catchy as it is danceable, which makes their live experience that much more entertaining. Their latest, Rhymes w/ Fingers, does show the band maturing a bit, however, as they slow things down to a soulful crawl on "In a Thought" but the EP will no doubt wake you up with it's concluding fiery fuzz-fest, "The Flying Shitshow Fuckfest Blues." Also appearing are The Babies and The Uglies. (Richard Giraldi) 9:00 p.m. Wednesday, 4/24. Schubas. 21+ $10.
THURSDAYMAGIC MILK Nothing gets you in the mood to dance more than bouncy garage rock jams that have the power to transport you into a swinging 60s state of mind. Thankfully, Chicago’s own Magic Milk is here to serve this pressing community need. Come get down to Magic Milk’s sleazy, distortion-heavy rockers at the Bottle and maybe pick up their new cassette. Also appearing tonight are Vancouver punks White Lung and Chicago rockers Daylight Robbery. (Audrey Leon) 9:00 p.m. Thursday, 4/25. Empty Bottle. 21+ $10. By Richard Giraldi \ comments
