Looking for something to do with your Wednesday, Chicago? Well, you've come to the right place for suggestions! This evening, the always wonderful Nathaniel Rateliff hits Schubas with the increasingly buzzy JBM but if folk isn't quite your thing and you're in search of something louder, you should head over to the Darkroom for the (appropriately) dark indie rock stylings of Iowa City's The Post Mortems.
Boasting a roster of influences that range from the macabre of Nine Inch Nails and Dresden Dolls to the decidedly less gothicly theatrical Neutral Milk Hotel and Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Post Mortems specialize in a type of rock that walks the line between metal and indie. They maintain melodic sensibilities throughout their music but aren't afraid to get sufficiently raucous when need be.
Of course, if you can't decide, you could always do what we'd do: Hit the Darkroom for the tentative 8 o'clock show time and hop on over to Schuba's in time for a little JBM and Rateliffe. Who says a Wednesday means boring?
Editor's Note: Future RFC contributor John Taylor was nice enough to point out to me that The Post Mortems play tomorrow, not tonight, at the Darkroom. Good news! That means you can see JBM, Rateliff, and The Post Motems and not have to worry about missing a thing!
