Saturday Slumgullion

Just a short edition of Slumgullion this week because my wife Pam and I went to see the Music On Stage production of A Christmas Story - The Musical at Cutting Hall in Palatine last night. It’s a fun show with talented singers and dancers, including several kids. There’s a show tonight and then A Christmas Story - The Musical will wrap up its run next weekend.

The Handcuffs, the Chicago-based band led by the wife and husband team of vocalist-guitarist Chloe F. Orwell and drummer Brad Elvis, will be introducing brand new guitarist Jeffrey Kmieciak when they perform as part of a triple bill tonight at Quenchers. This looks like a particularly fun evening. Sadie And The Stark—a “femme-rock, fantasy band for your soul, majoring in sci fi,” and El Gato Roboto, —“Bowie meets Nico, with songs about nostalgia, space and cats”—are the other acts performing.

Lloyd Cole will be at The Old Town School Of Folk Music this Sunday night for a gig titled The Classic Lloyd Cole Songbook 1983 – 1996. Hopefully, that means he’ll be performing the exquisite  “Jennifer She Said,” as well as film noir-infused material like “Perfect Skin” and “Rattles Snakes.”

Congratulations to Dan Pavelich on the publication of his first book; a collection of strips from the first year of his Just Say Uncle comic that ran on the Universal Press Syndicate’s GoComics website. Pavelich is also a journalist and he performs with the power pop band The Bradburys. The book is available for pre-order on Pavlelich’s Indiegogo page.

Thanks, George. I had to take a closer look at The Handcuffs pic to see what you meant.
