I Love the Secret Machines

Yesterday, a collegue at work asked me if there were any good shows coming to Chicago in the next month or so, and I drew a blank. About an hour or so later, I got this email from the Secret Machines announcing their first state-side tour in support of Ten Silver Drops.

So yeah, Secret Machines are coming to Chicago. That’s good news for me and good news for the rest of us blessed with a chance to see these guys in a club the size of the Metro. I’m beyond excited for this, actually.

There’s an exclusive interview up at brooklynvegan that’s worth a good read or two, and tour dates are after the jump (click “read more”).
