Freelance Whales @ Newport Folk Festival 2011 (more by Jim Brueckner)

Eventbrite's Concert Confidential is a simultaneous, multi-city event that consists of surpise free shows in NYC, LA, San Francisco, Dallas, and our very own Chicago this coming Saturday (9/17).

Freelance Whales will play the Chicago show at a TBA venue EMPTY BOTTLE. Chicago's RSVP will be open starting Wednesday night (really Thursday morning - 9/15) at 12:01AM CST. If you get a confirmation email to the 21+ event, you then need to print out your ticket (instructions in your confirmation) and be one of the first 400 people to show up. Doors will be at 6:30PM / Show at 7PM.

The NYC show, which was curated and co-produced by BrooklynVegan, will take place at Manhattan venue Beekman Beer Garden with The Hold Steady and one more band TBA. Tickets go "on sale" at the same time (EST).

Wavves will play LA, Jackie Greene will play San Fran., and Green River Ordinance will play Dallas.

Each event will be accepting donations for a different charity based in that area. Chicago's show will highlight our friends Rock for Kids, a local not-for-profit organization focused on funding the lack of musical education in Chicago's schools. Please donate if you're able. Check out a trailer of what they strive to do below.

Good luck getting in!
