SLCene Suggests: The Smoking Popes at The Urban Lounge

by on November 5, 2012

THE SMOKING POPES, THE URBAN LOUNGE, Monday, Nov. 5, 9 p.m., $12

Hard to believe Chicago’s Smoking Popes took 10 years off in the middle of their career, because the band led by the three Caterer Brothers delivers the kind of timeless pop-rock that endures through the years. Need proof? You’ll get it on this tour as the band plays its entire 1995 major-label debut, Born to Quit, in its entirety every night, along with a selection of tunes from its older indie records and the couple of releases they’ve had since reforming in 2008. Listen to the songs from Born to Quit today, and the lyrical themes and energetic instrumentation still resound. Not a bad way to start a week; you’ll be glad The Smoking Popes quit quitting and got back on stage. Luther opens the show.
