Kevin O'Donnell's March Spectacular @ Martyrs'

Not only has Kevin O'Donnell composed the soundtrack for over 30 works of theater in Chicago, including The House Theatre's The Sparrow, he's your unofficial best bet for catching an unannounced Andrew Bird show. (O'Donnell has performed on all of Bird's records and Bird played at O'Donnell's last Martyrs' performance in February.) O'Donnell plays tonight (no word about Bird yet) at 8pm at Martyrs' (3855 N Lincoln Ave).The $8 cover goes to benefit The House Theatre of Chicago. Tickets are available online or by calling 800-594-TIXX.

This week's albums are the Strange Boys' Strange Boys & Girls Club, Bishop Allen's GRR, and Neko Case's Middle Cyclone.
