THE IKE REILLY ASSASSINATION PLANS RESIDENCIES IN CHICAGO AND MINNEAPOLIS

The Chicago concentration, which has been dubbed the “Vespers Residency,” will take place at Schuba’s on two Sunday evenings per month in March, April, and May. The Schuba’s Residency will give Chicago a chance to hear the debut of the explosive new songs live for the first time, as well as material from The IRA’s massive catalog. The shows will have guests from Chicago and elsewhere, as well as an assortment of great support acts.  More information on the residency, which kicks off March 3rd, can be found here:  http://schubas.com/page/performances?year=Ike+Reilly+Vesper+Residency.
The Minneapolis concentration, which will take place at multiple venues, is billed as “Ike Reilly’s Saturday Night Special in The Twin Cities, Featuring The Ike Reilly Assassination.” The residency rolls into town on March 2nd, with IRA shows taking place at either 7th St. Entry or the Turf Club two Saturdays a month beginning in March and ending in May on Memorial Day Weekend.  In addition to the shows at the Entry and the Turf Club, Reilly will do an intimate solo show at The Ice House on Saturday, April 27th. The shows will have guests from the Twin Cities and elsewhere, as well as an assortment of great support acts. More information can be found here:  http://first-avenue.com/.
As Minneapolis City Pages said in advance of a previous Reilly residency there:  “…Reilly still stands out as one of the best rock ‘n’ roll musicians I’ve ever seen. Equal parts punk rocker, poet, and blue-collar barfly, Reilly’s stories are as bizarre and filthy and honest and pure as the people who come out to his shows. His songs reach out and grab people, shake them by the collars, make them jump up and down. …And here I am, another Minneapolis writer head over heels in love with Ike Reilly and painting him as some kind of punk rock prophet. Maybe, as they say, you had to be there. Or maybe you should see it for yourself.”
