WHAT: Jens Lekman, Peter Oren

WHERE: Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center ($17 advance/$20 door)

WHEN: Tuesday, February 6th at 8 p.m.

Jens Lekman is one of the more quietly decorated indie rock musicians of the last few decades — he's performing tomorrow night in Urbana at the IMC for this all-ages show. His most recent work came out last year, Life Will See You Now, but if you're looking for a few others to listen to — go for Night Falls Over Kortedala, and perhaps Oh You're So Silent Jens.

WHAT: Henhouse Prowlers

WHERE: The Iron Post (cover)

WHEN: Saturday, February 10th at 9 p.m.

The Iron Post is running full steam ahead with the amount of shows that they've been booking as of late. This weekend, they have Henhouse Prowlers lined up on Saturday, a group which isn't unfamiliar to Champaign-Urbana whatsoever. This would be a fun one to catch in Urbana this weekend. I can't seem to find any information about the cover charge, but I'd imagine it will fall somewhere in the $5-10 range — but don't take my word on it.
