Citizen's Cope's residency, The Wailers' play "Legend," plus indie rock from Wales
Monday, January 20, 2013
Citizen Cope's extensive residency: Singer/songwriter Citizen Cope sets up shop at City Winery for several concerts showcasing his alternative rock n' soul amalgamation, which was inspired by the curious combination of Van Morrison, Al Green, Neil Young and John Lee Hooker. Combine that pool of meaningful muses with his own deeply introspective songwriting style, and these intimate shows are sure to offer a revealing portrait of an underrated but rabidly followed artist. Thursday, January 23-Monday, January 27 at City Winery: www.citywinery.com/chicago/.
The Wailers pay tribute to a "Legend": When it comes to reggae, there's simply no greater act than Bob Marley and The Wailers, and while it's late great leader may no longer be with us, his legacy continues to this day. Catch the current line-up of The Wailers performing the entire "Legend" collection from front to back in honor of its 30th anniversary, which includes classics likes "No Woman No Cry," "I Shot The Sheriff," "One Love" and "Waiting In Vain."

Indie pop from Wales: Since debuting in 2006, indie rockers/noise poppers Los Campesinos! have earned just as much praise in America as its homeland of Cardiff, Wales. Currently touring in support of its fifth long player "No Blues," the troupe is a sure to be a hit amongst fans of Pavement, Guided By Voices, Modest Mouse or Sonic Youth.
