Wednesday, February 2 – Do312.com presents Pizza Pizza Wednesdays with Das Boton (live) & DJ Ryan Weinstein (free) Pizza Pizza Wednesday is the new, weekly party featuring a good Chicagoians two favorite things: free pizza and live rock & roll.

Tonight we welcome the Bill Dolan-fronted Das Boton, “an instrumental trio that turns up the eclecticism, shifting from swinging R&B shuffles to high-octane rockers. Rife with quirky detours, the bands’ noodle riffs and chicken-pickin’ leads furiously fill up the space typically occupied by vocals” – in the words of Time Out Chicago.

Two on a big ocean.
Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore met while studying philosophy in college. The two agreed that upon graduating they would sell their collective possessions and leave behind their lives in Denver. They planned to buy a small sailboat and spend the next year living aboard and traveling exclusively under sail. For years this dream was carefully nurtured while preparations were made. Learning to sail and selecting a boat is difficult to accomplish from a landlocked state. Their nautical self-education consisted of a steady diet of how-to books and videos.
They were motivated by stories shared by sailors like Joshua Slocum, or Lin and Larry Pardey. On a sailboat minimalism transcends efficiency. There are no schedules, no agendas, or the many concerns that come with modern life. A sailor cares only for the direction of the wind and the condition of the water. Riley and Moore did not want their perception of the world to be shaped by spreadsheets, or facts gleaned in classrooms. They wanted a life of experience unmediated by people or things, a life of intimate participation with their environment. Cell phones, television, household appliances, the conveniences of modern life were traded for simplicity and contentment. A return to evenings spent indulging in the profound silence of the remotest regions, far from the yellowy glow of civilization.
Voyaging along the North Atlantic coastline for seven months at an average speed of five miles an hour lends itself to reordering one’s priorities. The long way is the beautiful one. The hard way is the most rewarding. Two years after completing their 2500 nautical mile voyage, Riley and Moore’s experience has led them to seek out a new endeavor. Their music bears the mark of months spent alone with the sea and each other. It is tinged with the sweet affection of new lovers. It bears the uncluttered aesthetic of time spent in remote and uninhabited regions. Their music is a modest attempt to translate an old truth rediscovered.

Pop icon Boy George is poised to release his first artist album in more than ten years. Following a non-stop, sell-out European tour with ‘Night Of The Proms’ in 2010 where George performed to over 15,000 fans a night, one of the World’s most recognizable figures is officially back on mainstream music’s radar for good.
Ordinary Alien is an accomplished collection of tracks featuring Boy George & Kinky Roland’s faultless mod-pop production. As songwriters and all-round creative entities, Boy George and Kinky Roland have worked closely over the past fifteen years and Ordinary Alien is born out of this relationship – the pair are renowned for their seemingly never-ending surplus of quality material.
If Boy George isn’t writing then he is simply not Boy George – moving into 2011 and in light of this huge body of work, Boy George is determined to be the recognized as the talented musician he is. Ordinary Alien is the rise of George again – releasing fresh music to the World and chipping away at his craft as a writer, a singer, and a successful producer.
Originating from Berlin, Kinky Roland has been producing top selling tracks and remixes with some of the biggest names in Dance Music – Bananarama, S’Express with Mark Moore, Roland Sebastian Faber (aube records), Mini Legend, Starcluster (with Keen K on aube records), Marc Almond, Mark Moore, Jonny Slut, Glen Gregory, Fran,Princess Julia, Gene Serene, John Taylor; and of course Boy George.
Boy George first shot to international stardom in the 1980s as the front man of one of the UK’s biggest exports -Culture Club, who are re-uniting in 2012 for a Word tour to celebrate the group’s 30th Anniversary. He has sold over 50 million albums and has had top 10 hits in every country. Singer, actor, DJ, artist, photographer, fashion designer, he has constantly reinvented himself and remains today one of the world’s most recognisable iconic figures. Having recently recorded a track for Mark Ronson’s album ‘The Business International’, George and Mark are appearing together at London’s The Roundhouse on February 16th 2011! Boy George will be releasing lead single “Amazing Grace” in two parts, with part 1 out this week! “Amazing Grace”, which was written by Boy George, John Themis & Kinky Roland was produced and mixed by The Sharp Boys. While the first release of “Amazing Grace” features remixes from Kurd Maverick, Sharp Boys, and a variety more- the second part will drop Feb 2nd and includes not only an acoustic mix of the track, but 4 additional remixes!
In the meantime, be sure to check out Part 1 of “Amazing Grace”, as well as the stunning and colorful video for the track:

Hot on the heels of an incredible year that saw the release of their electrifying debut album, You Are the Night, Brooklyn-by-way-of-Birmingham band Deluka have announced a co-headlining U.S. tour with Fefe Dobson. Set to kick off in Pittsburg, PA on February 14th, the string of dates at Hard Rock venues across the country will be preceded by select New York City shows in early February.
Hotly tipped by NME and Dazed and Confused in their native UK, Deluka showed the US what all the fuss is about with the release of their debut full-length album, You Are the Night (Vel/RED),in late 2010. Enthusiastically embraced stateside as one of the year’s most exciting debuts, Deluka catapulted onto dance floors with their lead single “Cascade” which spent nine weeks on the Top 100 Alternative chart. The band is preparing for the release of their second single, “OMFG” as well as a music video to debut in mid-February 2011. Lead by magnetic front woman Ellie Innocenti, Deluka is known to pack venues with their floor shaking live shows and raucous DJ sets. Stay tuned for additional tour dates and plans at SXSW 2011.
Praise for Deluka:
“Female fronted, attitude laced electro tunes.” – Filter
“Ellie Innocenti is the next balls-out sex symbol front woman, right up there with the likes of The Duke Spirit’s Liela Moss, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Karen O, and Metric’s Emily Haines.” – Venuszine
“Girl-charged electro-skuzz punk, akin to Ladytron snacking on The Killers for brunch.” - NME
“An example of pop music at its most fun: dancy, noisy, and carried by a decent hook.” –Bust
“Disco- Electro- Indi- New Wave a la early Duran Duran.” – Women’s Wear Daily

The morning started as Joe Diamond, a paranormal magician, boggled the minds of Tom Kief and Lisa Tyler from The Tom and Lisa Morning Show on 95 WIIL ROCK in Wisconsin. Joe sealed up a card in an envelope for Lisa. He asked Lisa to cut through one of the cards in a full deck to read her future. After telling her about her future, he took it one step further by having the card in the envelope and the one she cut in the deck match. It’s priceless to hear the amazement of the radio DJ’s with his stunts.
Joe also performed an audience trick and it involved pointing fingers. Joe had everyone start with their ring finger and fate would decide which finger they would end up pointing with. I guess everyone is great with their fingers because Joe guess exactly which finger the audience, and DJs, ended up on. In true Tom Kief fashion, Tom told Joe which finger he should have everyone end up on when the trick ends. I think you can use your imagination as which finger that would be.
Joe also has a knack for guessing cards. He amazed Tom, Lisa, and Duco by naming all the cards Duco picked and held in his hands. Joe doesn’t miss a beat and hopefully he’ll duck when Tom tries to lay the beat down on him.
The final act on the radio was the bending act! Joe had listeners bending metal objects in their car and in their house. It turns out that the average “Joe” can actually bend metal! The hilarity ensued with Tom and Lisa continuing to not believe what was before their eyes. Video will be posted soon!
Tomorrow night 95 WIIL Rock present Joe Diamond at the FUEL Room at Austin’s Saloon in Libertyville. Tickets are only $15 and include Comedian Jimmy McHugh and Tom Kief as MC for the night. This is a 21 and over show. If you’ve heard Joe on 95 WIIL Rock you haven’t experienced anything yet until you see the show.

Bowery Ballroom – New York, NY
Twas a bitter, bitter winter’s night in New York City, but Sweden’s The Concretes defrosted the crowd like a good mug of glögg. The kids were bopping to the jaunty tunes of their latest album WYWH, “All Day” and “Good Evening”, as well as back catalog favorites like “Say Something New”. Former drummer Lisa Milberg has taken over the uneviable task of replacing the lead vocals from the departed Victoria Bergsman (Taken By Trees). The two tackle songs in a slightly different approach. While Bergsman sang with a pang of effortless emotion, Milberg relishes the spotlight and brings a light hearted chirp. WYWM is a bit of a departure from past albums with more emphasis on dance synths, which lends to Milberg’s delivery. Lisa can also bring it down a notch to melancholy, as she demonstrated with her rendition of “I Wish We’d Never Met”.
This reviewer has quite the affinity to Ms. Bergsman, but I must say Ms. Milberg wins over the latter with her stage presence. While Victoria would shy away from eye contact, Lisa engaged the New York audience praising the city for having the best dogs. Alas, don’t expect a transatlantic move for The Concretes. Lisa confessed she could not handle the copious mimosas at breakfast everyday.
The concert culminated with an encore, in which Lisa covered Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s “Military Madness”. As if that was not enough of a treat, they played old favorite “You Can’t Hurry Love” after title track “WYWH”. The Concretes are on the upswing post-Bergsman. Though they probably will always be the former band of Victoria Bergsman, they are craving out a new chapter for the evolving band.
Brad Paisley – H2O Frozen Over Tour

Now that that is out of the way, Brad’s H2O Frozen Over Tour kicked off in Green Bay last night. Brad sure didn’t disappoint especially with stage presence and pleasing his fans. There was a catwalk in the middle of the stage along with two mini runways off to each side of the stage. The two runways on the side of the stages actually dipped into the crowd. For those who purchased floor tickets looked very happy as Brad, with guitar in hand, walked right into the crowd on the floor.
The stage antics didn’t end there. The show also featured a life-size puppet of Brad. In true Paisley form, the videos that running on the back screens as he plays are down-right-out hilarious, thus the puppet. You’ll understand when you purchase your ticket and head to the show.
Brad also brought a pool along that was turned into a stage. For those die-hard, yet on a budget, Paisley fans, there isn’t a bad seat in the house, and Brad makes sure of that with all the ramps and the pool stage near the back of the arena. The man knows how to put on a show.
During the set Brad tells the crowd he’s bringing the tour back for the summer. He also called Keith Urban and Kenny Chesney “Wusses” for not playing Green Bay in the winter. Brad also paid tribute to the Packers in one of the video montages. I guess there is a reason why they completely skipped over Chicago, because I don’t know how he would explain himself. I kid….maybe. As mentioned before Aaron Rodgers did join Brad onstage for “Still a Guy.” Aarron looked lost trying to keep up with the singing. He eventually gave up and just started hi-fiving the crowd. I wouldn’t quit your day job Aaron, oh I take that back! Maybe you should and before Sunday please.
Did I mention it was in the negatives outside last night? This was truly the “Frozen Over Tour.”

It’s never easy making a transition in life especially when that transition is moving from mainstream rock to country music. I’ve read the articles poking fun at Darius and I’ve heard all the Hootie jokes, but look who has the last laugh. Darius recently released his second country album Charleston, SC 1966. The album debuted at the top of the Billboard Country Albums Chart at #1 with over 100,000 album sold in the first week. If that weren’t enough, the first single from that album, “Come Back Song,” has also reached the #1 spot on the Billboard and Mediabase Country Singles Charts, making this his fourth #1 hit since his release of Learn To Live in 2008. He’s performed at Stagecoach back in 2008 and now he’s the opener for Brad Paisley on the winter leg of the H2O Frozen Over Tour.
Darius walked on the stage at Resch Center in Green Bay last night to a standing ovation. Darius looked country, walked country, and sang country. He even had the females in the crowd swooning as he took to the catwalk singing “Purple Rain.” He also had a few sly dance moves that hypnotized the ladies. Watch out! Maybe Darius should have put on his cowboy boots years ago.
Darius did perform Hooties biggest hits such as “Let Her Cry,” “Only Want to Be with You,” and “Hold My Hand.” The fans loved it, but if he didn’t play them I don’t think they would have been disappointed. The fans were already singing along to “Alright” and the “Come Back Song.” It was the Hank Williams Jr. Cover of “Family Tradition” that set a permanent bond with Darius and his fans the Resch. It also solidified his status in the country music family.
