Show preview: Dastardly, Milano and more at Reggie's, 3/5

Posted by Sasha

Dastardly love a good saloon
In preparation for their trip to SXSW, alt-country darlings Dastardly will play their first Chicago gig in three months this Saturday. About time, too--this raucus sextet puts on a stomping good show that's not to be missed. The show is free, but the band would be grateful for donations to help sponsor their journey to Texas.

Accompanying Dastardly at their pre-Austin hoedown will be the Champaign-based Dirty Feathers, interstate bluegrass collaborators The Bears of Blue River, and avant-garde gypsy rockers Milano. Expect big American sounds all around. Each of these bands push midwestern music to a different edge, entertaining the genre in exciting ways. If you're looking for an evening of diverse yet aesthetically cohesive rock performances then this might be a good way to fill your weekend. And did I mention the show is free? Because it's super free. It'll all get started at 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 5th at Reggie's Rock Club (18 and over).
