The Get Up Kids @ Webster Hall 3/2/2011 (more by Andrew St. Clair)

Alright Chicago, ahead of us is a weekend packed with amazing shows. This is the last weekend before SXSW, and it’s almost overwhelming what we have going on in just three short nights.

We recently mentioned that The Get Up Kids were in town to play two shows this weekend. Friday night they’ll be at the Bottom Lounge, and Saturday they’ll play Lincoln Hall. Support on both dates comes from Miniature Tigers, and Brian Bonz.

Friday night at Lincoln Hall, is a really killer lineup of Maps & Atlases, Light Pollution, and Gypsyblood. All of the bands on the bill are Chicago based acts, who are not necessarily confined to just this city anymore.

Competing with those for your attention are singer/songwriter Jonathan Richman at Metro, and The Cold War Kids supported by local up-and-comers A Lull at the Riv.

Catch Obits at Empty Bottle along with Jaill, Loose Dudes, and The People’s Temple.
Crystal Castles are playing at the Riv, along with Teen Girl Fantasy.
Middle Brother, Dawes, and Deer Tick are playing at Metro, and then we’ve also got The Get Up Kids for the second night in a row, this time at Lincoln Hall.

In the afternoon, Hideout is having a SXSW send off for a bunch of great Chicago based bands including: Chaperone, Rabble Rabble, and Joan of Arc.

Ice Cube will be headlining the Mid with support from Mikkey Halstead.
