Chicago garage rockers Smith Westerns visit The Rhythm Room tonight.

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, why not take that special someone to a show to express your love? Chicago-based Smith Westerns play tonight at The Rhythm Room with label mates Yuck.

Cullen and Cameron Omori, Max Kakacek and Colby Hewitt make full, sappy, love songs with some unlikely vocals. Think: If you were watching any Michael Cera movie, they’d likely fit on the soundtrack. In other words, it’s simple garage rock with that great melody that you crave.

Smith Westerns have been zigzagging the U.S. behind their 2009 self-titled album and Dye It Blonde, released less than a month ago. Seems like they just got their licenses and hit the road. Band members’ ages range 17 through 19. Before they had a car they toured with Nobunny, and their fame grew from there.

Music magazines from around the country, along with digital hipster bible Pitchfork, have picked up on the band, but it wasn’t until their latest release, featuring the single, “Weekend,” that they got some serious attention. With influences ranging from The Beatles to David Bowie to T. Rex, the varied sound lends to a diverse crowd.

So come on, take your date out for a nice surprise. Dedicate “Girl in Love” or “Be My Girl” to really impress him or her.

The Rhythm Room is located at 1019 E. Indian School Rd. in Midtown.
