Wire presents Drill: Chicago

Venerable veteran post-punk band Wire puts together an interesting three-day art-rock festival spread over three venues. On Thurday, local jazz-skronk man Ken Vandermark performs and also stretches out with Wire on “Map Ref. 41°N 93°W” (21+), the best song from the group's 1979 album, 154. On Friday, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and White Lung kick out the jams (17+), while St. Vincent pops in to improvise with Wire on a longform version of "Drill," an industrial epic around which they once based an entire album. Finally, on Saturday, Wire performs its perfect debut Pink Flag in full (18+). Tim Hecker and local krautrockers Disappears open that one.
