Baby, it’s cold outside, and things are slowing down a bit in Chicago clubland as the holidays approach. But there still are plenty of good reasons to venture out this weekend.
Metro has a great weekend in store with three strong shows in a row. Tonight, the prolific Minneapolis art-rock collective Cloud Cult headlines over similarly inventive fellow travelers Dark Dark Dark and Ben Weaver starting at 9 p.m. Tickets are $16 in advance or $18 at the door.
On Saturday, everyone's favorite Clark Street institution (Metro, of course, not Wrigley) ups the tempo considerably for an invigorating night of pop-punk that kicks off with Boom Juice at 8 p.m., followed by the House That Gloria Vanderbilt, Noise by Numbers, 88 Fingers Louie, and in the inimitable Bollweevils.
