The Empty Bottle’s last free Monday of 2008 may very well be its most memorable. Chicago’s indie-pop protégés, Raise High the Roof Beam, will be gracing the stage with big melodies and even bigger fun. The eclectic five-piece will be brightening the dark caverns of the Empty Bottle with a dynamic sound that has been compared to The Arcade Fire, Talking Heads, and Animal Collective. So come spend a night of drinking and dancing with your new favorite band! Their infectious pop tunes will stay with you long after your buzz wears off!
The last free Monday at the Empty Bottle (1035 N. Western Ave.) is December 29th at 9:00pm. Other bands include, The Black Fortys (Carbondale) and Soft Speaker. You can read more about Raise High the Roof Beam at (http://www.myspace.com/raisehightheroofbeammusic)
