Biffy Clyro is bringing their newest album, Opposites, released March 2013 out on a substantial headlining tour this autumn. The run kicks off in Charlotte, NC on September 28th and continues through October 10th in Philadelphia, PA. Biffy Clyro were last in the US this spring playing Coachella and touring with Muse, including two shows at Madison Square Garden. They headlined Reading & Leeds earlier this month. Opposites won the Kerrang Award for Best Album and Biffy won this year's NME Award for Best British Band.
They will pulling up into the iconic, well-worn Bottom Lounge, located at 1375 W. Lake Street on Sunday, October 6th. This gig is a 17 + event. The band will also be doing a pre-show event at the local JBTV earlier in the day. Check out www.jbtvonline.com to enter to win a chance at one of 50 pair of tickets for that exclusive show.
Bottom Lounge has about a 700 people capacity. The sound is really quite good for such a a large room. The beer list at the venue is very extensive. I challenge you to find a venue with this wide a selection of craft beers and imports anywhere in the city. My recommends are Half Acre, Three Floyds, or Dogfish Head. Another plus is the lounge has in and out priveledges and an outdoor patio if you just want to hang and relax.
Be sure to check out the rooftop deck too, if it's open --- the view is amazing.There is a small, free lot adjacent to the club. Street parking in the area is fairly easy and there are no meters. Please keep in mind there are parking restrictions on any street in Chicago and you should always be sure to look for any signs explaining those near your car.
