Speaking of awesome music going on this Thursday, I've been checking out the Chicago band Big Knife on the recommendation of Blue Arrow Pete and I really dig them. Heavier and sludgier than I usually like, there is something edgy, enlightened, and humorous about them, and the guitar jams with a litheness that is sometimes unexpected. (I also love that their myspace link name is "/bigfuckingknife" - I'm so childish sometimes.)
Big Knife are playing a FREE set at Blue Arrow on Thursday as they make their way on tour from Brooklyn to gigs in Michigan and Milwaukee, and the gig starts at 6:30, which would leave you PLENTY of time to get over to the Grog Shop afterward for the Yeasayer/Ponytail/Unsparing Sea show that night.
