Screeching Weasel, Dwarves, the Queers, Flatfoot 56

Sat., Nov. 22, 6 p.m.

I've spent the past few months working on a Screeching Weasel cover band for Halloween. Being required to learn one or two new Weasel tunes every week means I'm listening to these 90s pop-punk masters more than I have since I was in junior high. Sure, Ben Weasel may be a huge piece of crap, but it's impossible to deny that the man is a musical genius. —Luca Cimarusti, 2014

Goran Bregovic

Thu., Nov. 27, 8 p.m.

Nobody has done more to spread the joys of eastern European Romany music than Serbian rocker turned raconteur Goran Bregovic. He began by scoring some of Emir Kusturica’s best films (including Underground in 1995 and Black Cat, White Cat in 1998), and he continues to artfully reshape traditional melodies for his own hyperactive bands—though his borrowings have provoked accusations of theft from legends such as Boban Markovic and Esma Redzepova. Bregovic has ramped up his crossover ambitions since then—his 2012 album Champagne for Gypsies (Universal) augments his Wedding and Funeral Orchestra with the likes of the Gipsy Kings, Gogol Bordello front man Eugene Hütz, and Swiss pop singer Stephan Eicher, extending his music’s pool of influences (and thus its demographic reach). Whatever questions may linger about the integrity of his creative process, Bregovic is a savvy, dynamic performer—he brought down the house at Millennium Park in 2006 and at Ravinia in 2009. Tonight’s concert is billed as a 40th-anniversary celebration of his old band Bijelo Dugme (“White Button”), so I’d expect the Romany material to be intercut with schlocky 70s rock. —Peter Margasak $65, $85.50 gold ticket
