Review and Pics of Big Shoulders Ball

Pitchfork has an awesome review of the Big Shoulders Ball: Chicago Celebrates Change, the Inauguration Eve concert held at the Black Cat in D.C.

Hosted by Windy City club the Hideout and, ahem, "community organizers" Interchange, Big Shoulders boasted a kick-ass lineup that included Andrew Bird, Tortoise, the Waco Brothers, Ken Vandermark, Sally Timms, Jon Langford, Icy Demons, Freakwater and more. Suffice it to say, we were thrilled to be the co-beneficiaries (along with the Chicago Public Schools marching bands program) of such an awesome and historic event.

We'll be posting our own pictures once our hangovers subside. . .
