GAS MASK HORSE

Fri. Aug. 25 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
GAS MASK HORSE - listen
Since 2010, Gas Mask Horse has been Chicago's foremost purveyor of staged horror escapism. As western society crumbles further, these flim-flamming charlatans offer more than the standard recorded and printed ephemera, what's offered is the opportunity to revel in a pure synth d-beat punk ghoulcore nightmare. Haunted Archer Avenue is brought to the stage and it's more than just smoke and mirrors; live actions have included audience members hypnotized, gorillas snatching people from right next to you- even bone crunching car accidents perpetrated by The Blood Splattered Demon Car of Archer Avenue! As a satisfied patron of the arts said after a recent performance - "A real atmos-FEAR-ic experience to every ticket holder!"
GHOST APE - listen
The post-doom duo Ghost Ape weds sludge and stoner doom guitar fuzz with chopped-and-screwed drum beats, all in a grimy, slow-and-low fog that will please fans of Earth, Sleep, Sunn 0))) and Schoolly D. Guitarist J Mlodzinski is a veteran of numerous Chicago bands (Imperial Battlesnake, American Musk Ox) and bassist Andy Freivogel is an afro-cuban priest and amateur birdwatcher.
SHED - listen
Shed is a five-piece experimental stoner metal band from Chicago. Featuring electric cello, trombone, saxophone, bass and drums, Shed barrels off the traditional paths of its genre towards darker, weirder realms, dragging the listener through thorny thicket of riffs after thorny thicket of riffs until finally arriving at its ultimate destination: the movie theater, to watch Star Wars.






STARLESS

Sat. Aug. 26 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
STARLESS - listen
Driven by heavy, down-tuned guitar riffs and melodic vocal harmonies, Jess Ambriz and Jon Slusher bring you a haunting variation of doom and slow core, conveying darkness and light with heavy guitars and voice. Drummer Quinn Curren and bass player Alan Strathmann fill out this dystopian beauty that will have your ears ringing and your head humming.
ROZAMOV - listen
Since 2011, ROZAMOV has left their mark on the US metal circuit with their infectious psyche-tinged grueling doom, having opened for countless national acts, touring regions of the country, and much more, in addition to releasing two independent EPs – 2012’s Rozamov and 2013’s Of Gods And Flesh. A busy 2015 included performances at Psycho California, Converse Rubber Tracks Live alongside Slayer and Doomriders, a tour with Destroy Judas, and the release of a split 7” with Deathkings. Amidst the bleak and historic winter of 2014-15, the recording lineup of ROZAMOV including Tom Corino (bass/vocals/noise guitar), Matt Iacovelli, (guitar/vocals/piano), and Will Hendrix (drums) entered New Alliance Audio in Cambridge to record This Mortal Road. Since its recording the band’s new live lineup is completed with Iacovelli on guitar and vocals, Corino on bass and vocals, and Jeff Landry on drums. Following the release of their lauded This Mortal Road LP in spring 2017 and a US tour in support, ROZAMOV has completed their first official live recording, titled Adaptations, which they are now preparing to release independently. Adaptations was recorded on tour earlier this year as the band was on your supporting This Mortal Road, captured at Live Wire in Chicago, mixed by Chris Johnson at The Electric Bunker, and mastered by Alec Rodriguez at New Alliance. The record features three previously-released songs – “Ghost Divine,” “Serpent Cult,” and “Inhumation” – and leads off with a new song called “Surrounded By Wolves.”
THE DITCH & THE DELTA - listen
Doom that incorporates many different influences such as noise music and progressive metal. One may hear early Melvins or Eyehategod one minute and the next hear Intronaut or even Pure era Godflesh sounds coming from their headphones.
SNOW BURIAL - listen
Snow Burial is a hard-hitting and dynamic post-metal trio from Chicago. They dedicate themselves to crafting aggressive, emotive and technical music. With their first full-length release, Victory In Ruin, Snow Burial manifests a punishing yet beautiful amalgam of sludge, thrash, shoegaze and math-rock; a lush palette of melody and grit, running through the imagined wastelands.

DEEP STATE

Mon. Sep. 18 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
DEEP STATE - listen
Nothing is a random act. Things come and go in a seemingly unpredictable order, but truth be told, it’s all meant to be. Take Deep State, toiling under the low lights of Athens, making some of the best, pure-bent, rock joy heard in a generation in their crook neck portion of the east coast. Power, volume, transition, and then suddenly, they’re here: one of your new favorite bands, wearing out the motor on your turntable.
