As we pointed out in our show roundup earlier this week, the Metro's the place to be tonight. At the top of the bill are Pet Lions, makers of some of Chicago's finest indie rock/pop tunes whose debut full-length Houses was one of my favorites of 2011. The band recently put out a video for one of the album's highlights, "Trinidad," which you can check out below (every band could use a good "look at us as we go on fun musical adventures" video, and this is theirs).
In addition to Pet Lions you'll get the ominous-yet-alluring indie rock of Tiger Bones and the moody, folky rock of The Hudson Branch (too bad they don't have an animal name too).
If all that weren't enough, you can get in free before 9 p.m. if you show this flyer. Otherwise you'll have to pay $9, which will no doubt still be well worth it. Doors 8 p.m./show 9 p.m., 18 and over.
