Music notes

Members of pop punk band Chico Escuela say it’s over. The band plays one of its last shows 8 p.m. Oct. 24 with Drowning Adam and A Moment’s Loss at Ark-a’ik. They will also play as part of Teen Read Week at local libraries Oct. 20-22 (see this issue’s “This week” calendar, page 21). The band wrote on their soon-to-disappear Web site, “So Chico Escuela has decided to part ways … for those of you who will be bummed out, we wanted to thank you and anyone else who ever supported us in any way.” … The metal band Lingus was rumored to have fired their guitar player Patrick “Trick” because he was too distracted being in love and all. Many, many disturbed Lingus aficionados wrote to the band’s Web site. After a few days of banter, Trick wrote to say, “There were some things that went down, but I don’t feel comfortable talking about them. … As far as the future of Lingus—we (meaning Gus Driver, Matt Kind, Dr. Jerry Lingus and Trick) will see you in the New Year with new songs and a fresh vibe.”
