Location: Kansas State Fairgrounds, 2000 N. Poplar, Hutchinson, KS  67502

Winter can feel as ominous as it does endless. The seasonal equivalent of a horror flick, the blistering cold and unpredictable curtain of snow teeter between brutal and beautiful. Chevelle—brothers Pete Loeffler [Guitars, Vocals] and Sam Loeffler [drums] and Dean Bernardini [bass, vocals]—work well under these conditions. This atmosphere even inspired the title of the multiplatinum Chicago alternative rock band’s eighth full-length album, The North Corridor [Epic Records].  You can experience Chevelle live this weekend at the Kansas State Fair.  CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS!
