Hella is playing this Thursday night (June 10th) at the Bottom Lounge, along with Philadelphia's Need New Body and Chicago's own Make Believe. Last year's Hella show, also at the Bottom Lounge, was the best concert I saw that whole year, and one of the best shows I've ever seen. I'll be there with pals, so come see me, meet me, shake my hand, buy me drinks, look at my hideous 'Rab-fro! Or, you know, just come out and see one of the most amazing live acts you'll ever see in your span on Earth. It would be criminally insane, like training a diseased gibbon to commit acts of mayhem against Third World children, to miss this show.
EDIT: Doors open at 8PM, so come even though it's a school night. The Chicago Reader has made this one a Critic's Choice, so come early.
