Tortoise, The Sea and Cake & Man Forever are playing a FREE Thrill Jockey Records anniversary party at the Empty Bottle


As mentioned, Chicago label Thrill Jockey Records have reached the ripe age of 20-years old this year. They’ve already announced 20th anniversary shows in Baltimore, NYC, and Portland, and their Chicago show will take place on December 20 at the Empty Bottle. Genre-bending groups Tortoise, The Sea and Cake, and Man Forever are on the bill, and admission is FREE with RSVP. Among those who RSVP, entry will be on a first-come, first-served basis. There will also be complimentary beverages from Goose Island and Virtue Cider while supplies last.
