I've got a whole city to hold down

March 17, 2004


Schubas announces: Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players (April 9 - early), the M’s with the Reputation and Pilot to Gunner (April 9 - late), Phantom Planet (April 20), Jay Bennett (May 1), the Butchies (May 5), Okkervil River (May 8).

Jam announces: “The father of Chinese rock ‘n’ roll” Cui Jian (April 17, Park West), Bob Schneider (May 4, Double Door), Offspring (May 16, Aragon) and (uh) Phil Collins (September 8, United Center). Also, this Friday’s ‘Doors of the 21st Century’ show at the Auditorium Theatre has been cancelled. The area’s moneyed nostalgists weep.

Editorial note to the Jam update: Have we mentioned how crazy-excited we are for April 10 at the Park West? That lineup again is Blackalicious, DJ D-Sharp, DJ Shadow, the Gift of Gab, Joyo Verlarde, Latyrx, Lateef & the Chief, Lifesavas and Lyrics Born.
