at Mill City Nights
Thursday, 11/12/2015, 7:30pm ($27.50)
We previously caught RAC (André Allen Anjos) and Big Data together at the Go Fest '15 music festival.
RAC only DJ-ed, while Big Data had a nice little set featuring singer Lizy Ryan doing her best Hall & Oates' "Private Eyes" and playing their most popular song "Dangerous".
Opening up the show will be Austria's Filous (not to be confused with Germany's Filou) and Portland's Pink Feathers (aka Liz Anjos).

at Varsity Theater
Thursday, 11/12/2015, 7:30pm ($12.50)
The Scots are taking over The Varsity Theater on Thursday, November 12th. We Were Promised Jetpacks, from Edinburgh Scotland, have a sound and live show that you will definitely not want to miss.
This indie rock band started back in 2003 at a high school battle of the bands and has not stopped since. Their newest release Unravelling was released in October of last year on Fat Cat Records. The album was recorded at Chem19 Studios with Paul Savage who has worked with bands such as Franz Ferdinand and Mogwai. They have gotten high praise from Rolling Stone and Spin for a reason.
You may recall that they previewed five or those Unravelling songs (as well as a brand new band member Stuart McGachan) on their live show at the Triple Rock Social Club in February 2014.
The Montreal-based (read: not from Korea) Seoul to open. The trio (Julian Flavin, Dexter Garcia and Nigel Ward) is on tour in support of I Become A Shade (Grand Jury). The album is separated into three distinct suites, equal parts gauzy dream-pop, reverberant R&B, and speculative ambient.

at Turf Club
Friday, 11/13/2015, 8pm ($20)
Fans of 90s Arizona rockers The Refreshments will be elated to know that Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers will be making a stop to the Turf Club on November 14th. Clyne, of course, was the lead singer of the Refreshments and when the group called it a day in 1998, he formed the Peacemakers with Refreshments drummer Paul “P.H.” Naffah. The current line-up also features guitarist Jim Dalton (of The Railbenders) and bassist Nick Scropos (of Gloritone.)
The Peacemakers have been steadily releasing records since 1999’s Honky Tonk Union as well as hosting a semi-annual concert in Rocky Point, Mexico called “Circus Mexicus” (an event that’s a veritable who’s-who of Southwestern rock and roll with past guests including like Cracker’s David Lowery and Johnny Hickman to the Supersuckers’ Eddie Spaghetti.) Last year the band released their seventh studio album The Independent, a title that nods to the quartet’s commitment to their DIY philosophy (it was produced by Naffah, recorded at his studio and released on the band’s own label, Emma Java Records.) It’s a record teeming with rollicking country-rock jams that will sound like sunshine to our chilled, Daylight-Savings-weakened ears and spirits.
Next year, The Refreshments’ breakthrough 1996 album Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy turns 20 years old, so perhaps Clyne and his Peacemakers will throw in some cuts from that album (“Down Together,” please!)
Nashville's Birdcloud to open. The cowgirl duo (Jasmin Kaset and Makenzie Green) is described by the Chicago Times as "shaking up the country cutie aesthetic and, more importantly, elevating women's roles in the highly patriarchal cowboy community."
