You You Dark Forest Steps Out Into the Light at KFN Jan. 25

For close to three years You You Dark Forest has been establishing itself by playing some ear-catching ambient instrumental rock. The quartet has been able to strengthen the forged bond that brought them together, and its sound has evolved through the new material that they have been working on since the start of the winter. Tonight, the band will be stepping out into the light at Kung Fu Necktie, and with this evening’s performance being the group’s first show of the year, it’s very likely that You You Dark Forest will be unveiling a bunch of new tunes. And they'll also be joined by indie-rock trio Bone Bats and Janelle. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $6, 21+ - Bill McThrill


Goodnight Lights and Monday Appreciation Society Play The Fire April 18th

Planning the release of their upcoming June album If You Were Here I’d Be Home Now (in homage to the 51st and Market Love Letter mural), Monday Appreciation Society has released two catchy and smart singles under their signature lo-fi filters. Drummer/Singer Mark Rybaltowski and guitarist Dan Wisniewski joined forces and have been picking up speed since the breakup of their band The Quelle Source last year, and tonight’s show will be the duo’s first-ever performance featuring their “full band” including members of The Chairman Dances, Bird Watcher, and The Quelle Source. Headlining the show is the indie quintet Goodnight Lights playing one hit after another with their smooth alternative rock sound. Also recently added to the bill are the “post-modestmousecore” Bone Bats and the innovative folk-star Thom McCarthyThe Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave., 9pm, $8, 21+ -Maggie Grabmeier
