((Constantines)) Band Profile and Upcoming Chicago Concerts - Oh My Rockness

THE CONSTANTINES PHOTOGRAPHED BY MELANIE FERRIS
Canada's boisterous band, Constantines, formed in 1999 and shortly thereafter moved to the big city of Toronto to hone their craft. After releasing two ambitious full-length albums, the buzz around them is huge. Call their music arty, call it dub, call it punk, but in the end it's just good old fashioned rock 'n' roll.

Their blend of rock happens to be ass-shakingly catchy and very reminiscent of Fugazi. But hey, if you're gonna sound like a band it might as well be Fugazi, right? These guys are unabashed in their enthusiasm, and their angular guitar chords make them one of the better live bands to see this year.
