If you were frequenting live shows in Chicago during the first few years of this century, chances are Light FM is a familiar name. Back then the band was a local favorite, but eventually frontman Josiah Mazzaschi took off for the warmer temperatures of L.A. where he founded his own studio, The Cave, and put together a new version of his one-time Windy City band. While we can no longer claim Light FM as our own, a homecoming of sorts will go down at Subterranean tonight, October 23rd, as they play a headlining set before they head back to California after opening on this month's Smashing Pumpkins tour. Adding even more incentive to head out are alt-rockers The Assembly--whose driving, moody sound will return soon after a bit of a hiatus via a new album The Future Has Been Sold--and Farewell Captain, featuring ex-members of the Chicago version of Light FM. This one's bound to be worth the trip out on a Sunday night. The show starts at 8:30 and costs $8 (click here for tickets, but note that the bio inaccurately describes the '80s, Feargal Sharkey-fronted Assembly instead of Chicago's Assembly).
