Where’s that boy’s
goddamn medicine?

Ike Reilly, indie rock raconteur whose new album, “Hard Luck Stories,” drops digitally
November 24, has planned a special weekly podcast series.  As a lead-up to
the release of the album, Reilly will be hosting “Where’s my Goddamn Medicine?,” which will be available for free download
beginning TODAY, October 26th on Reilly’s website: www.ikereilly.net. It will be broadcast weekly
from Libertyville, IL.

 

“Where’s My Goddamn Medicine?”
will preview many of the tracks from “Hard
Luck Stories
,” of course, but Reilly hastens to add it will give fans a
quirky introduction to the “friends, enemies, bankers, drug dealers, real
estate agents, cheerleaders, high school students, teachers and coaches, family
members, offspring, and all the other fucking freeloaders that live with me.”
 

 

Prior to the album release, Reilly
will be appearing on November 9th at the Improv Olympic “Armando
Diaz Experience” as the “monologist” for the evening.  The cast will then
improv off of Reilly’s stories/songs for the show.  “Armando Diaz
Experience” is iO’s longest-running show and a landmark of comedy in Chicago.  Reilly
will also be visiting the Improv Olympic
Theater every Wednesday through November 18th as part of the “TJ and Dave” show, where he
will be kicking off each show by performing several tunes and telling
stories.  Long-form improv masters TJ and Dave
have been using Reilly’s music to open their weekly shows for a long
time.

 

Tour dates for Hard Luck Stories are tba for 2010, but he and his band The Ike
Reilly Assassination will do a Thanksgiving Eve show Nov. 25 at First Avenue in Minneapolis and then a Chicago gig (Liberty Hall) on Dec. 11.
