Why You Should See Nones Tonight at El Lenador
8 p.m. Tonight. El Lenador (3124 Cherokee Street).
Every Spring we Midwesterners reap the benefits of shows from bands that are touring to and from the SXSW festival in Austin. We're usually stoked about coastal bands that had previously been too lame to swing through the Lou, but this year we can't wait for neighboring noise makers Nones to play on its victory lap back to Chicago. Nones is one of the newest bands on Chicago's underground HoZac Records label and its sound is both no wave and psychedelic. These three girls and one (insane) dude front man make both twitching blasters that dip into skronk territory and trippy, kaleidoscopic jams that are frequently interrupted by a squawking saxophone.
For Fans Of: The Fall, Fear, HoZac labelmate Nobunny and David Yow's stage presence.
