Fall Showdown: How Local Can You Go?

Tonight through Saturday, December 15, The Canopy Club will be hosting bills featuring a total of sixteen local or area musicians. All for a moderate 5 bucks a night ($7 after 10pm), that’s only $1.25 a band, if that were how it worked.

Acts range from locally well-known bands like Polyvinyl’s indie-pop darlings Headlights, alt. country stars The Beauty Shop, the psychedelic garage-rock of The Living Blue, and the Midwestern indie-rock gloom of New Ruins, to the new bands quickly establishing themselves in the Champaign-Urbana scene, like Common Loon and their Beatles-inspired sonic pop songs, Tall Tale piano power emo-rock, and World’s First Flying Machine’s mini-chamber pop.

So if you’re going out for a night, needing a break from finals, or have finished finals and are looking for something to do, check out some great live local music.
