CANASTA - Show this Monday + "Reader" & "Onion" Press!

(sent on 2004-04-23)

Just a reminder: Canasta will be playing a FREE show at the Empty Bottle this coming Monday, April 26. We'll be going on stage around 9:30, so be sure to come early. Then stick around for All City Affairs and headliners Beauty Pill (Dischord) -- not to mention the cheap, cheap beers!

If you need a little extra convincing, consider what two of Chicago's finest newspapers had to say about us this week:

"Opener Canasta is a perfect fit: The local group's debut EP Find the Time cycles gently through keyboard-heavy indie-pop, even treading lightly on a cover of Kraftwerk's 'The Model.'" (The Onion)

"These locals get the most out of the unprepossessing songs on Find the Time, their self-released debut EP: they emphasize each melody as though nothing else matters, then use keyboards and violin to make sure no flourish or fill possibility goes unexplored. It makes for a lovely, lilting sound, and numerous local references place this chamber pop in the city we actually live in, not some idealized upper-crust bower." (Monica Kendrick, The Reader)

That's right! Hope to see you all on Monday.
