- Spitalfield says bye-bye at the Grog Shop.
Emo trio Spitalfield got a jump on the genre, forming nearly a decade ago in suburban Chicago. The group recently called it quits — perhaps a harbinger of things to come (After all, who wants to hear a 30-year-old guy complaining that girls just don't get him?). But before they put away their guitars (and, presumably, the thesaurus that helped them through many variations of "brokenhearted"), band members are giving fans one more chance to see them live. The group's farewell tour features songs from its three albums, including last year's Better Than Knowing Where You Are. The shows pretty much amount to greatest-hits sets — so don't go looking for eight-minute jams or a solo tune by the bass player.
