Orwells, Criminal Hygiene, Symposium

Tue., Dec. 30, 7 p.m.

There’s probably a better way to kick off a brand-new year than by screaming along to cynical, dystopian garage rock—but you won’t find it at Lincoln Hall. To ring in 2015, Chicago’s own Orwells take over with two nights of drunken, sweaty guitar tunes. And the young kids have plenty of reasons to look back fondly at 2014. First and foremost, they released their major-label debut and breakthrough album, Disgraceland (Atlantic), with the album single “Who Needs You” reaching local airwaves. Plus, they played high-profile slots at both SXSW and Riot Fest. The Orwells’ lurching, antagonistic songs might not paint an especially hopeful future, but they make a great soundtrack for shrugging off the year we just endured. Who wouldn’t want to shout the lines “No thank you dear old Uncle Sam” and “I’ll just let it burn” after considering the news headlines these past few months? —Sasha Geffen The Orwells also play on Wed 12/31. sold out

American Football, Maritime

Fri., Jan. 2, 10 p.m.

On “Honestly,” one of my favorite songs off the 1999 self-titled debut from downstate emo outfit American Football, front man Mike Kinsella coos, “Honestly I can’t remember (teen dreams) / All my teenage feelings.” Kinsella was a few years out of his teens when American Football was released by Polyvinyl Records, and with its gentle, sparkling, and autumnal music—and Kinsella’s near-whisper singing—the album evokes all of the indefinable, heavy feelings that stick with you beyond the age of 20. Songs such as “Never Meant” and “Stay Home” are intimate reveries, forged in a stew of second-wave emo locomotion and Steve Reich minimalism. American Football called it quits in 2000, but year after year legions of newcomers fall for its warm embrace—the band’s postbreakup reputation and influence have grown to a mythic, Velvet Underground-like size for those fourth-wave emo outfits who want their music to feel like a moment of clarity. Tonight is the first of four reunion shows in support of Polyvinyl’s deluxe reissue of the debut LP. And if the group’s marvelous Beat Kitchen surprise in August was any indication, you might want to get tickets for multiple shows. —Leor Galil American Foootball also plays on Tue 12/30, Wed 12/31, and Thu 1/1. sold out
