On March 26th, we're throwing it back to an old Empty Bottle tradition with TORTOISE - two shows, one night! The Chicago mainstays have played at the Empty Bottle over a dozen times. Twenty-plus years after its founding, the band's signature and singularly inimitable sound - a fluid intersection of dub, dance, jazz, techno, rock and classical minimalism, with no part overwhelming or dominating the whole - remains an American and international institution. Calling the "post-rock" ensemble prolific is an understatement. Continually forging new sonic territory, the revered quintet have been at the forefront of musical innovation since the early 90s, and they are widely thought of as one of the most dynamic and enduring ensembles to have emerged in the Chicago rock landscape.
2017 marks our quarter life crisis, and we want to celebrate with all of you! We're bringing back bands of Bottle's past for an EB25 series throughout the year. Come one, come all - let's party like it's 1992.
- Box Office Pre-Sale: Wednesday 2/8 & Thursday 2/9, 5-8 p.m. at The Empty Bottle (1035 N. Western)
