Indie veterans
Indie-rock band Eleventh Dream Day was one of the keystones of Chicago's music scene throughout the 1990s, and it remains a vital and creative unity. Led by Northbrook native Rick Rizzo, the band combines Neil Young-style guitar flourishes, punk energy and an experimental streak that has seen the band explore electronic and ambient sounds.
8 p.m. Sunday, June 16, at the Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia, Chicago. $5-$10. Go to hideoutchicago.com.
