Indie Stars Come out at Congress; New Ager Goes Celtic at Chicago


Byline: Mark Guarino Music critic

Fugazi and Shellac, 6 p.m. today at the Congress Theater, 2135 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago. $6. (773) 252-4000.

Integrity could be the sponsor of this double bill. Two of indie rock's most respected acts pair up to top their sold-out Rainbow Roller Rink show in 1996. For 10 years, D.C.'s Fugazi has kept album/tour prices low, managed themselves and released seven albums on Dischord, which was co-founded by guitarist Ian MacKaye. Their seventh, "End Hits," grapples with their usual hard-core power while including interesting, fluid guitar textures - this is an album that is a never-ending pleasure of driving, rhythmic grooves.

Shellac, still touting their second album, "Terraform," is headed by Chicago engineer/producer extraordinaire Steve Albini. The show also includes an "Independent Rock Music Label Festival" - at least 15 indie labels will have booths set up all night in the historic Logan Square theater's front lobby.

Loreena McKennitt, 8 p.m. Saturday at the Chicago Theatre, 175 N. State St., Chicago. $49.50/$36.50/$26.50. (312) 559-1212.

Now that Ontario native Loreena McKennitt's ethereal, New Age sound has made mainstream radio via "The Mummer's Dance," she's poised to take the crown of precious navel gazing from Sarah McLachlan. If lush, Celtic interpretations of ancient poems excite you, pick up her new "Book of Secrets" (Warner Bros.).

Susan Tedeschi 10 p.m. Saturday at the Beale Street Blues Cafe, 1550 N. Rand Road, Palatine. $7. (847) 776-9850.

Get to Beale Street this weekend, because pretty soon Susan Tedeschi will be playing larger halls - starting this summer opening for Buddy Guy. The 27-year-old guitarist and Boston native has a voice as gutsy as any blues woman twice her age. She's not an imitator, she's an innovator, quite adept playing gospel, rock and gritty R&B. Her debut is "Just Won't Burn" (Tone-Cool).

Wayne Hancock, 10 p.m. Saturday at FitzGerald's, 6615 Roosevelt Road, Berwyn. $8. (708) 788-2118.

Nasely Wayne "The Train" Hancock's sophomore album, "That's What Daddy Wants" (Ark 21), was so well-received by the retro rockabilly crowd, his debut has been re-released with the obligatory bonus tracks. In 1995, "Thunderstorms and Neon Signs" (Ark 21/Deja Disc) helped kick off the Western swing craze appointing Hancock its king and propelling like-minded folks to indulge in hair gel, poodle skirts and Western wear.

Andrew Bird's Bowl of Fire, 7 and 10 p.m. Saturday at the Old Town School of Folk Music, 909 W. Armitage Ave., Chicago. (773) 525-3655. Also performing 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at the Ivanhoe Theatre, 750 W. Wellington, Chicago. $15. (773) 975-7171

Northwestern alum Andrew Bird made a backyard party in Austin this spring seem like a swanky, '20s gangster club. His affable croon combined with some zippy violin playing gives credence to the fact this guy's not just another jump-blues poseur. …
