A few Chicago music news bites

  • Gapers Block has the details on an upcoming exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago that will feature a collaboration from Andrew Bird and sculptor/luthier Ian Schneller. There will be a visual aspect including a "sound garden" of audio horn speakers as well as a performance by Bird.
  • We've still got a while until we find out who's going to play Lollapalooza 2012 in Chicago, but lineups have just been announced for the upcoming Chilean and Brazilian installments of the fest. Check them out here and here and let the Lolla Chicago lineup speculation begin.
  • has some video from last Thursday's M83 show at Lincoln Hall.
  • Long-time Windy City rockers Local H are apparently Rush fans, and they're out to make it known this New Year's Eve at the Bottom Lounge where they'll ring in 2012 with a salute to Rush's 2112. "Being Rush fans, we also realized that it was now or never to do something with 2112," says frontman Scott Lucas. "It's not numerically correct, but none of us will be around in 100 years, so we're doing this for humanity's sake."
