On rest from apparently playing baseball with Craig Finn and the rest of the Hold Steady’s crew, Chris Archibald’s little outfit, Illinois, is on its way here to Schuba’s in Chicago to grace us with some stomp rock. Bon Iver and Wax Fang will accompany the band this Friday (1/18/08) for what should be a promising show.*

In the meantime, checkout their Daytrotter sessions (particularly “Alone Again) for some sick recordings

* This is assuming that Chris Archibald and co. aren’t too shell-shocked from chilling/touring (read: drinking) with the Hold Steady. This is Archibald’s post-tour debriefing: “I’ve never vomited (consecutively) this much in my whole life!! It’s now a routine, I wake up, vomit, have a smoke, vomit, get in the shower and vomit. And that’s normal!”

Fuckers are drunk,
