In a relatively last-minute update to the Melody Inn’s December show calendar, Chicago rock stalwarts Model Stranger have added a December 9th headlining show with Midwest State of Mind, during which the two bands will co-release a split 7-inch vinyl edition of “Stare (I Want You To)/Fork In The Road” — and the first 25 fans to pay the $5 cover for the show will receive a free copy. Doors open at 8:00, live music starts at 9:00.
The show will also feature local Melody Inn regulars Minute Detail and the always-popular Trevor Potts-led Sugar Moon Rabbit, so as far as Friday night shows go at the Mel, this is one of the big ones you definitely won’t want to miss!
Model Stranger will be releasing a music video for “Stare (I Want You To)” on December 11th, so get your copy of the vinyl split at the Mel and then check back here on the 11th … we may just have your video fix that day too [sly editorial wink!] Until then, this excellent 2009 video of their performance of “Turn of the Century” at Chicago’s Metro will have to suffice.
