MENOMENA to play first Empty Bottle "Music. Friendly. Dancing" event. Man Man Tour.


Huge news on March 1st!

Portland's MENOMENA are headlining the first of many free monthly shows ran by the Empty Bottle entitled "Music. Friendly. Dancing."

As a "thank you" to customers, the Empty Bottle crew are holding these free shows on a free, first-come, first-serve basis.

The first event kicks off on Monday, March 7th at 6p.m. , and admission if not guaranteed, so get there EARLY!!!

You can purchase "tickets", or RSVP if you will, HERE!!!

Chicago has always been a GREAT town for free, live music, such as the Do-Division street festival, Wicker Park fest, Empty Bottle's own "free mondays" and curated outside music festivals sets (like Menomena) , Pritzker shows...but this is great news for summer, music lovers, and fun-seekers in general!

P.S. there's a Betta Promotions hosted show at Schubas tonight including The Island of Misfit Toys, and Project Film. You should go. It's only $8

Edit : The night was great! Quick, short show, ending in time for 9-5'ers like myself to sleep early.

Super good, even with a main member gone...

Video will be up in the next day or two! HMD
