My Bloody Valentine
Event Info: (773) 561-9500 aragon.com
It only took him 22 years, but Kevin Shields finally finished and released My Bloody Valentine's third record, mbv, earlier this year. The result? Another collection of densely layered guitar symphonies that bring the group's woozy brand of shoegaze into the 21st century. The Aragon Ballroom—which the band played during it's 2008 reunion tour—will once again host the British quartet. Pack some earplugs—the cavernous nature of the venue turns My Bloody Valentine's live show into an ear-splitting experience.
