Beauty Bar Events May 2011

Check out the Beauty Bar’s new events for next week along with their May 2011 live music listing.

Thursday, May 19 – Empty Bottle presents Wilderness of Manitoba, Death Ships (7pm; free)

Toronto-based folky pop quintet THE WILDERNESS OF MANITOBA head down to Beauty Bar tonight supporting their newly released LP, When You Left the Fire, an effort full of hauntingly pretty sounds. Weaving their combined vocal harmonies over mountainesque sounds of banjo, cello, mandolin and guitar and striking a perfect balance between mellow and intense, we’re excited to have their dulcet sounds fill our sparkly room. It’s free and early – perfect way to unwind after work!

$4 Heinekin, $4 Brooklyn Drafts

Saturday, May 21 – Beauty Bar x Empty Bottle x Stic of the Week present Austra, Trust, Gemini Club (DJ set),, Ornery Little Darlings (10pm; $5)

Katie Stelmanis returns to Chicago with her trio AUSTRA. With a new LP out this month on Domino, Feel it Break, the Canadians have crafted a dark, danceable masterpiece suitable for both ritual incantations and clubs; an album harkening back to the sleazier side of New Wave but still deeply rooted in Stelmanis’ classical and operatic upbringing. Stereogum calls AUSTRA a “Band to Watch” and praises the effort as “a strong (100% dud-free) collection and one of 2011’s surefire best.“ Also performing live tonight are dark, haunting Canadian duo TRUST, supporting their recent Sacred Bones-released Candy Walls and local duo ORNERY LITTLE DARLINGS will be spending the whole evening at BB, first debuting the tracks from their upcoming LP Get After It, then bringing the record to life. Energetic and engaging local DJs GEMINI CLUB and provide sounds throughout the night.

Hosted bar 9-10pm with RSVP, $3 Bud drafts, $3 PBR tall boys, $4 well drinks
