This Thursday, 9/25, head up to Evanston to check out one of the area's newest venues — SPACE — and hear the croonings of Chicago performer Tom Schraeder & His Ego to boot. Schraeder, a native of Chicago, brings a solid swagger to the stage with some Austin-influenced Alt-country stylings, and a easy-going relationship with the mic. His voice sounds familiar, in that "we dated one summer", kind of relationship one has with the lead singer in the popular college band. His lyrics have a scruffy honesty that's comforting and comfortable — like an old pair of jeans you just can't be apart from.
Tickets to the show Thursday are just $10, but thanks to the nice folks at SPACE, enter in "transmission" on their ticketing page, and get in to the show for free!
Tom Schraeder & His Ego performs Thursday night at SPACE located at 1245 Chicago Ave., Evanston (near the Dempster stop on the Purple Line). Doors open at 8pm, and Scott Lucas (of Local H) and Chris Seleski open. For more info. call (847) 492-8860.
