Since opening a little over a year and a half ago, Brooklyn Bowl has cemented itself as one of the premier and most unique destinations to see live music, eat high quality comfort food and roll a few frames. Earlier this week, Eater Chicago revealed that the folks behind our favorite NYC venue have plans to expand to the Windy City and open the aptly named Chicago Bowl. The venue, which won’t open until 2012 and already has its own Twitter account, will be housed on the site of a 23,000 square-foot former auto warehouse located at 1850 W. Chicago Ave., and have a similar look and feel to the original with 16 lanes and food provided by Blue Ribbon.

Finally, earlier this year at SXSW the lead singers of Deer Tick, Dawes and Delta Spirit made their live debut as MG&V. The band, who Deer Tick front man John McCauley has jokingly said kept getting confused with MGMT, has announced that they not only have officially changed their name to Middle Brother, but that their long awaited self-titled debut will finally be released on March 1. Middle Brother, who will hit the road in support of the album next Spring, will headline a special benefit show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles on December 20, along with Cass McCombs, Mountain Man, Guards, Blake Mills and an acoustic set by McCauley. All proceeds will go to benefit Invisible Children, an organization seeking to end the conflict in Uganda and stop the abduction of children for use as child soldiers.
