Red Sun, Molehill and Boxers

Ballroom Boxer makes me long for the upcoming summer days with a stage show that feels more like a backyard party than a concert at a venue. The skilled performers know their way around a rock song, and they bring an entrancing, down-home roots feel to tracks from their latest album (and a few from an upcoming release, too). Catch a few minutes to hang with the guys after the set as they say goodbye to one of their own and welcome some friends from Ohio -- Red Sun Rising -- to the Bottom Lounge stage, along with Chicago alternative rockers Molehill. 7:30 p.m. Sunday, April 22, at Bottom Lounge, 1375 W. Lake St., Chicago. $16.50. (312) 666-6775 or bottomlounge.com.
