Summer in C-U moves along with show after radical show. Don't believe us? We dare you to click that shit.
This week you can catch Dottie & the Rail in an unusual setting (for them), some creepy punk rock from Canada, and a little chamber-pop from Belgium.
This week brings jazz at Canopy, OKC crazies to the Highdive, and a label showcase to Mike 'N Molly's. Love that summer time in Champaign-Urbana.

This week it's damn slow, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't check out underground post-rock from Brooklyn-via-Detroit, or underground hip hop from your own backyard. Oh, and we're throwin' down, too.
It's a huge week for shows in C-U, from a midweek gig from Dan Deacon and George Clinton to a couple of weekend bluegrass concerts, with a healthy dose of local showcases mixed in. Dan Deacon update inside.
Some electronica tonight, a bunch of Dylan on Sunday. And enter to win tickets to the Bottle Rockets DVD filming concert at Highdive on Saturday.
This week go Gaelic on Monday, spread some Appleseed on Thursday, head to Tolono for Whiskey on Friday and top it off with a Caucasian on Sunday.
An art opening, a free Monday night show, and nearly every local band worth seeing.
