Weekend picks

Tonight's Empty Bottle release party for the 90 Day Men's new disc, Panda Park, leads the Reader's choices. (Coco Rosie and Pit er Pat share the bill.) Monica Kendrick has good things to say about locals Light FM and Offwhyte.

New City's Dave Chamberlain seconds the 90 Day Men reco.

Sun-Times hypes include DeRogatis on Deep Purple (Tuesday, Chicago Theatre), Hoekstra on Rod Stewart (tonight, Allstate), and Jakubiak on veteran Bay Area MC Robust (Tuesday, Bottom Lounge).

In the Trib, Chrissie Dickinson profiles Delbert McClinton (tonight, HOB). Also in the paper, Rick Reger casts a flattering spotlight on Rob Mazurek, while on the Metromix site he pushes the Mountain Goats, Chris Whitley and more.

Lastly, in the Daily Herald, Mark Guarino profiles Bobby Conn and adds his weekly gig picks.
