Billboard has teamed up with Chevy to kick off Dreamseekers , a concert series showcasing the best and most promising bands in music today. The first event falls on Sept. 14 at Reggies in Chicago.
The Windy City bill includes experimental noise-rockers A Place to Bury Strangers , a Brooklyn-based trio known for engulfing live audiences with their massive sound. The band's 2009 album, "Exploding Head," spent time on the Heatseekers Albums chart.
The exclusive event also features Billboard Music Awards Battle of the Bands winner, Boston's own Gentlemen Hall , who recently lit up the stage at Billboard.com's Summer Blowout  concert in NYC. Also on the bill at Reggies, Chicago's own DFM (Deuce Funk Monsters).
Hosted by J Niice & Julian of the B96 Morning Show, the Dreamseekers show on Sept. 14 is free and gets rolling at 7:00 p.m. CDT. Click here to reserve tickets  and find more details on the event. Must be 18 years of age or older.
