This month Chicago is hosting a very interesting array of side projects and some good Latino bands. Shower yourself this April with some great music!

Deerhoof – Monday, April 8th at the Lincoln Hall

This noise-rock-San Francisco based band has been experimenting with their unique sound since its debut in 1997. Deerhoof’s awesome-weirdness has created a fanbase all over the world, and they will be in the city for second time presenting their latest album, Breakup Song.

The Men – Thursday, April 11 at Lincoln Hall

In only three years, the Brooklyn-punk band The Men has published four albums, in which they have managed to create a calmer and less distorted sound as they go, but they went through this difficult transition while keeping their rebellious nature and punk-voice.

Rufus Wainwright – Sunday, April 14th at the Old Town School of Folk Music

Wainwright’s seventh studio album Out of the Game was produced by Mark Ronson and has collaborators with artists such as Wilco, Sean Lennon and of course, the whole Wainwright family. The only problem is that the friends of the Old Town of Folk Music are charging $80 per ticket. Good for them.

Bomba Estéreo – Monday, April 15th at Mayne Stage

The Colombians Bomba Esteréo produce an outstanding blend between traditional Latin genres and electronic beats. The album Elegancia Tropical has led them again to a US tour. In Chicago they will be supported by Los Vicios de Papá and DJ Sound Culture

The Black Crowes – April 16th and 17th at the Vic Theatre

The Black Crowes is one of the purest American rock n’ roll bands of the last two decades. Mainly influenced by blues, country, southern-rock and the classic rock style of bands like The Rolling Stones, they have left the world with unforgettable songs such  as “Remedy” and “Sting Me” from their outstanding 1992 album The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion. They will be performing two dates (16th and 17th), but both are sold out.

Pissed Jeans – Thursday, April 18th at Empty Bottle

Pissed Jeans was one of the most acclaimed bands in the recent SXSW 2013. They come to the city to present their latest album, Honeys, which have brought them critical acclaim not only in the metal/hardcore publications, but also by Pitchfork, Spin and New Musical Express. Fake Limbs and Blizzard Babies will open for them.

Jim James – Saturday, April 20th at the Vic Theatre

My Morning Jacket’s frontman is presenting his debut album, Regions of Light and Sound of God, a personal and spiritual journey through the mind of this great songwriter. Cold Speck will open this sold out show.

How to Destroy Angels – Tuesday, April 23th at the Vic Theatre

How to Destroy Angels is the product of the collaboration between Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, his wife Mariqueen Maandig, the Oscar-awarded Atticus Ross (The Social Network) and long-time NIN collaborator Rob Sheridan. Welcome Oblivion is their first LP, and it keeps the post-industrial tendencies of Reznor and mixes them with electronic rhythms.

Johnny Marr – Thursday, April 25th at the Metro

Johnny Marr will always be part of the history of contemporary music because he was the guitarist and co-composer of the British band The Smiths. Over the years he has been involved in interesting projects, especially his collaboration with Modest Mouse. He has now released his first solo album, The Messenger. For Smiths fans let down by the recent cancellation of Morrissey’s show, this will be a great opportunity to see half of the legendary band.

Jarabe de Palo – Sunday, April 28th at Joe’s on Weed Street

The Spanish band Jarabe de Palo will have their Piano y Voz Tour across the American continent in April and May. Frontman Pau Donés and pianist Jaime Burgos will be performing songs in their purest form—with just a piano and the smooth vice of Donés.
