More awesome live music (Tonight!)

Posted by Eliot Weinstein on July 17, 2008

Modus Operandi will be performing live at 8 pm tonight (Thursday, July 17) in Chicago. The location is MIX, 2843 North Halsted Street, just north of Diversey in Lakeview. The cost is (an incredibly low) $5 at the door, just make sure to tell them you’re there to see Modus Operandi. Especially if you missed their appearance in Evanston last month (but also if you’re in the area and looking for an evening activity), plan to spend an hour listening to this innovative Alternative/Electronic Rock group. Because MIX is a bar/cocktail lounge, there will be a dance floor and a wide selection of drinks for those so inclined, but admission is 21+ only.

As an added bonus for my friends, family, and readers, I will be playing bass guitar with Modus Operandi. The show will feature songs from both of the band’s albums, as well as new (not-yet-released) works.

Hope to see you there!
