The Montréal-based psychedelic and ethereal indie rock group, The Besnard Lakes, open the Downtown Sound series on the heels of their highly acclaimed, recently released new CD, The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night. Featuring husband and wife team Jace Lasek and Olga Goereas, they come to Chicago following a two month European tour. http://www.thebesnardlakes.com/
Coming back from a two-year hiatus can be hard for any band, but The Ponys have managed to return stronger then ever. Now, the Chicago rock group is poised for their first summer tour in two years, and is excited to play to a hometown crowd in Millennium Park. http://www.myspace.com/theponys
