As part of my podcast, I recently caught up with Stephen Ucherek and Mike Racky of Chicago band Village. They let me tape their musings on their origins as a band, their music, and their upcoming performance (TONIGHT, Friday, October 29) at recently-revamped music venue Mayne Stage in Rogers Park. The bill also includes recent SubPop Records addition Jaill and fellow Chicagoans Team Band. The venue opens its doors at 8 pm and the show starts at 9 pm ($10, advance tickets available here), but in the mean time, have a listen to Stephen and Mike shooting the breeze and Stephen playing some solo songs on the Indiesomnia! Green Room Sessions podcast. It should be a good time, in more ways than one.
