Minutemen Covered Tonight At Lincoln Hall--Kids Welcome

Take advantage of the 3 day weekend.   Kids don't have to get up early for school, Monday, so give 'em a little rock education tonight at Lincoln Hall.    All ages are welcome and tickets are just $15 for adults at the door and only $5 for anyone under 17!   All proceeds benefit Girls Rock Chicago.   Come on out for a great cause and a fun, rockin' evening!

This Sunday, February 20th, for one-night-only, three Chicago-area musicians will be taking on all 45 songs of the Minutemen’s Double Nickels on the Dime LP.  The band, Econoline, formed in 2010 with the sole intention of bringing this revered punk classic to life.  As this is no small task, they’ve enlisted the help of over a dozen friends, including some of Chicago’s indie and punk rock elite, to get the job done.  Joining the band on vocals will be Dianogah front man and poster artist extraordinaire Jay Ryan, Cap’n Jazz/Joan of Arc mastermind Tim Kinsella, fellow suburban punk rocker and Gauge/Haymarket Riot guitarist Kevin J. Frank, avant garde pop-rocker Bobby Conn, Chic-a-Go-Go’s own Miss Mia & Ratso, Golden Horse Ranch band square dance sensation and The 1900s crooner Jeanine O’Toole, garage pop darling and Tyler Jon Tyler front woman Rebecca Flores, now-wave pianist Azita Youssefi and many, many more!
If that’s not enough, Girls Rock! alum and Zombie Masquerade guitarist Ruadhan Ward will be opening the show and joining the band onstage for a few choice Minutemen songs.
Girls Rock! Chicago is grateful to everybody participating, and especially to the band members - drummer Colby Stark, bassist Paul Kelvington, and guitarist Nathaniel Braddock - for selecting our organization as the event’s beneficiary.  All proceeds from Sunday’s show will fund scholarships to GR!C’s week long rock and roll summer camps.  If you’d like to support the cause, but cannot make it to the show, consider making a “Double Nickels” donation in any amount online.
