City goes pop
The schedule for the third Chicago edition of the International Pop Overthrow festival has been announced. At the moment it's only floating in the e-mail ether, but we assume all info will be on the IPO site sometime soon. The details are far too, um, detailed to publish here, so we're sticking to a thumbnail: April 16-May 2. Variously at the Beat Kitchen, Gunther Murphy's, Wise Fool's, the Abbey, Schubas and the Bottom Lounge. Six to eight bands playing half-hour slots on each bill. Knock yerselves out.
