hometown heroes : check out the changes

Despite the fact that it's my hometown, I actually know very little about the Chicago music scene, so I was really excited when an email about a band called The Changes landed in my inbox. Drawing comparisons to bands like the Police and Phoenix, the band produces some irresistably catchy and quite dance-y indie rock (isn't that all the rage these days...).. some say they out did the Kaiser Cheifs on charm and fun when opening for them in Chicago . Well... you can be the judge of that yourself when the band makes at trip out east next week, playing May 17th at Rothko for Vicious and May 18th at Mercury Lounge.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that The Changes are the only unsigned band playing Lollapalooza this year. And ladies, they appear to be mighty cute. I'm just saying.

Check out one of their tunes and have a little singalong:
