Roommate Chicago Show!

For those of you in the Chicago area, Roommate will be playing their release show for We Were Enchanted (their first show in 3 months!) on Saturday night (April 19) at the Empty Bottle , 1035 N. Western Ave., at 10 PM. The cover is $8. CDs & vinyl LPs of the album will be available at the show.

Battlecats (Toby Summerfield plus Roommate collaborators Anton Hatwich & Jaimie Branch) will open the show and Roommate's good friends the The Judy Green (starring Roommate bassist Gillian Lisée) will play second. Our set will start sometime around midnight and will feature selections from the new album, an even newer song inspired by letters to and from Tamms C-MAX prison (more on Tamms at http://yearten.org ), some old chestnuts from the Roommate catalog, and guest performances by a few of the people responsible for some of the record's most magical moments.
