Chicago's notorious frigid winter temperatures and the possibility of snow don't stop the Empty Bottle from throwing an outdoor concert in February. The Music Frozen Dancing block party sets up a stage outside of the Ukrainian Village rock club, fires up some heat lamps, stocks the coolers wil Goose Island beer and presents an afternoon of live music that you can take in while bundled up in your warmest winter coat.
This year's lineup features psychedelic pop-rock outfit Divino Niño, jangling punk duo Sweeping Promises and dark club-pop puryevors Pixel Grip. Los Angeles post-punk act Automatic, noisy New York quartet Surfbordt and local rockers Stuck will also perform.
As usual, admission to Music Frozen Dancing is free, but the Empty Bottle will collect donations for Chicago Coalition for the Homeless at the gate.
