Helio Sequence, Sun Airway, Houses, California Wives 

When: Wed., Jan. 12, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $15
Chicago duo Houses formed in May and dropped their debut record, All Night (Lefse), in October; they made their live debut at CMJ in New York the day after the release, and now, almost three months later, they're finally playing their first hometown show. Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Dexter Tortoriello and vocalist Megan Messina keep things simple onstage, augmenting their singing with a melodica, a tambourine, a MIDI keyboard controller, and a couple MacBooks. It's not a lot to look at, but Houses have never been about overwhelming their audiences—as All Night makes clear, their music is about creating an inviting atmosphere from lush, airy electronic melodies, hypnotic beats, and the softly cooed vocal harmonies of a lovestruck young couple. With help from visual artist Alan Jensen, whose dreamy video projections will provide a backdrop to the band's live set, Houses should make Lincoln Hall feel at least a little bit warmer. Helio Sequence headlines; Sun Airway, Houses, and California Wives open. This show is part of Tomorrow Never Knows. 18+.
