Local H at Double Door (more by Kevin Osterhout)
Local H

Chicago's longstanding purveyors of the grungier vein of 90s alt-rock Local H will be going out on tour this summer in support of 90s juggernauts (to varying degrees) Helmet and Filter. Though that tour will seemingly take the local two-piece everywhere but their hometown, not to worry. Local H will play a couple of headlining shows in Chicago upon their return from the road. The first of these will be at the Navy Pier Grand Ballroom on August 16, where they will be headlining the musical portion of the Great American Lobster Fest. Don't tell the ghost of David Foster Wallace, but tickets are still on sale here in various packages that may or may not include an order of lobster. For those of you who love local hard rock but don't love seafood, Local H will play a show a couple weeks later at First Midwest Bank Ampitheatre at Tinley Park on August 29, where they will join a butt-rock bill par excellence with Linkin Park, 30 Seconds to Mars and AFI. Tickets for that thing are on sale now.

Below, check out the full list of dates for Local H, most of which are with Helmet and Filter.
