Spider Bags, State Champion, Animal City

When: Fri., Oct. 14, 9:30 p.m. 2011

At this year's Hopscotch Music Festival, Spider Bags showed off a new four-person lineup. Far from cleaning up their boozy garage chaos, it only added another dimension to the roughshod jubilation. With original bassist Gregg Levy moved to second guitar, leader Dan McGee was left to dole out madman riffs and yelps with abandon. But if the Bags show up as a trio, that won't be bad either: McGee drags his backers pell-mell through gritty assaults that turn miscues into triumphs. The murky, downtrodden country of Chicago's State Champion should prove an appropriate counterpoint. Animal City opens. —Jordan Lawrence
