Superchunk Get Ready to do Some Majestic Shredding in a City Near You

WMSE recalls and realizes Superchunk as one of the most definitive indie rock bands to carve a strong identity into the genre in the 90′s, helping make a name for both their label-homes of Matador and Merge, so imagine our excitement in seeing this announced. Happy summer, indeed! Chicago, here we come.
