Tonight! The Antlers, Hood Internet at Cicero's

by

Buzzy Brooklyn band the Antlers is playing tonight at Cicero's. The genesis of the band's album, Hospice, is quite interesting, as Todd McKenzie noted in this week's paper:

For nearly two years, Peter Silberman stowed away in a New York apartment and wrote a devastatingly beautiful record centered around death and loss. This narrative of the artist -- toiling in monkish isolation with the Big Questions in life -- has colored much of the reception to Hospice, the second album by Silberman's band, the Antlers. The personal, however, cannot be excised from a record as nuanced and meditative as Hospice. The compositions paint vast interior landscapes, where crackling swirls of noise shift to reveal redemptive peals of brass and tube-bell harmonies. But where the music is post-rock in structure, it's confessional folk in delivery.

As an added bonus, Chicago mash-up DJ duo the Hood Internet is now also on the Cicero's bill. (The Antlers play at 9:05 p.m., and the Hood Internet headlines at 11:50.) Also, here's a few more important schedule changes from our blogpost last week about Playstlfest: The 560 Music Center is no longer a venue on Thursday and Friday night, so the Republic Tigers will be at Cicero's on Friday night at 10:35, and Owen is now performing on Saturday night at 10:55 at the same venue.
