Tonight! The Antlers, Hood Internet at Cicero's

Posted By on Thu, Sep 17, 2009 at 3:17 PM

Buzzy Brooklyn band the Antlers is playing tonight at Cicero's. The genesis of the band's album, Hospice, is quite interesting, as Todd McKenzie noted in this week's paper:

For nearly two years, Peter Silberman stowed away in a New York apartment and wrote a devastatingly beautiful record centered around death and loss. This narrative of the artist -- toiling in monkish isolation with the Big Questions in life -- has colored much of the reception to Hospice, the second album by Silberman's band, the Antlers. The personal, however, cannot be excised from a record as nuanced and meditative as Hospice. The compositions paint vast interior landscapes, where crackling swirls of noise shift to reveal redemptive peals of brass and tube-bell harmonies. But where the music is post-rock in structure, it's confessional folk in delivery.

As an added bonus, Chicago mash-up DJ duo the Hood Internet is now also on the Cicero's bill. (The Antlers play at 9:05 p.m., and the Hood Internet headlines at 11:50.) Also, here's a few more important schedule changes from our blogpost last week about Playstlfest: The 560 Music Center is no longer a venue on Thursday and Friday night, so the Republic Tigers will be at Cicero's on Friday night at 10:35, and Owen is now performing on Saturday night at 10:55 at the same venue.
