ONE MORE MOON

Sat. Feb. 17 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
ONE MORE MOON - listen
One More Moon is a four-piece from Chicago that got it’s start in early 2015 when singer/songwriter Eric Quigley decided to take his solo work to the next level. Guitarist Roger Smit, bassist Chris Rawlins, and drummer Aaron Schapiro fill out One More Moon’s line up. Their mix of folk, blues, and rock – along with the many differing influences each member brings to the table – transform Quigley’s foundations into songs wholly unique to the band. Since their debut, One More Moon has played various venues in and around Chicago, including the Cubby Bear and the Metro. They released their debut EP on New Year's Day 2017. It's available on iTunes, Spotify and other major streaming services.

THE WESTERN CANON - listen
The Western Canon is a collection of contemporary, dark pop songs written by guitarist Jason Plahutnik and guitarist/vocalist Chris Oakes. After playing with various bands around the city, they've solicited drummer Mike Mazzola, bassist Trevor Pritchett, and keyboardist Jayson Homyak to bring the project to life. The lyrics are straightforward, straying from metaphors and leaving minimal room for interpretation. The songs follow a similar path, letting the melodies and rhythm carry the listener along without interruption. Like classic works of art, literature and poetry, The Western Canon sets out to capture modern day complexities in a simple, timeless tenor.






DAVEY DYNAMITE

Mon. Mar. 05 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
DAVEY DYNAMITE - listen
Davey Dynamite began playing solo in 2010 with the idea of taking a punk approach to writing folk songs. Since then he has played hundreds of shows, toured the U.S. and released four full-length albums. This past year, Davey released his fourth album and first completely full-band effort, "Holy Shit," with the help of Dying Scene Records, Don't Panic Records & Distro and No Time Records. In 2017, Davey came in as the runner up to Eryn Allen Kane for the Chicago Reader's best local singer/songwriter.
GREG REKUS - listen
Greg Rekus first hit the road as a solo artist in March 2011. Since then, he has played some of the greatest punk music festivals around, including The Fest, Pouzza Fest, and Groezrock Music Festival. He has toured Europe three years in a row from London to Ukraine. He has toured the United States and Canada over ten times. Finally, he has released two full length albums and a 7 inch in several different countries through a network of indie labels. Live, Greg’s act can be described as punk inspired riot folk that engages crowds of all styles and configurations around the world. The lyrical content stretches from drinking in your favorite bar, to relationships, political jousting, life in general, and more. His energy level is rivaled by few solo artists, and he is most known for strumming the hell out of an acoustic guitar and stomping the beat out on his custom built stomp box. Greg’s Passion for music is bursting at the seams. It is the driving force that keeps him on the road 6 – 7 months a year and cranking out album after album of punk rock goodness. Greg Rekus will stick to his rigorous tour schedule and loves to do every radio, newspaper, and website interview that passes by. His hard work has already gotten him to places he never thought attainable and the only way from here is up.
ST. MARLBORO - listen
St. Marlboro was formed by a couple of Chicago punks in 2014 in order to explore country and American folk music, with the energy and dynamics of 90s alternative and grunge music.
WAYSIDE STORY - listen
The story of Chicago’s Wayside Story began in 2013, when founding members Brian (vocals, bass) and Casey (lead guitar) each found themselves turning to Craigslist in a desperate attempt to find others who shared their passion for edgy pop-punk stylings. Call it fate or call it coincidence, in either case the two musicians managed to find each other and quickly clicked, inspiring them to set out on a mission to find others who might share in their musical vision. Eventually they would be joined by Kevin (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Alex (drums), rounding out Wayside Story with the right balance of creativity and talent. Through playing multiple venues around the Chicagoland area, Wayside Story quickly gained interest and notoriety within the local music scene. In the fall of 2015, the band teamed up with producer Roye Robley to record their first official EP, Young Adult Fiction (2016). The six-song EP, available on iTunes, Spotify, and Bandcamp, instantly drew high praise from fans and helped the band to secure an opening gig at the House of Blues on August 14th, 2016, which has been Wayside’s biggest show to date. With melodic, fast-paced songs featuring tight musical compositions and contagiously catchy vocal harmonies, Wayside Story continue to play with the passion for music that first set them on their fateful Craigslist adventure. With no signs of slowing down, they are sure to be one of the top pop-punk bands to watch in the new year.

EEPHUS (members of The Krunchies, The Mascots, Uh Oh, The Busy Signals, Love Dictators, Heated, M.O.T.O., Endless Column)

Sun. Mar. 11 - 9:00 pm - 21+ -
SILENT TEMPLE - listen
Mystical minstrels bringing you a fusion of Folk, Rock, Classical music and Jazz, Silent Temple sings to the world from the sacred places deep within the forest, high atop the mountain, far beyond the sunset, deep within your mind...

SUN GOD RA - listen
Sun God Ra is the sonic weight of the universe. It is the sound of the world made audible. Cosmic energy distilled into music. Hail Ra.
CASUAL HEX

OUT

Sat. Mar. 24 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
Out's 7" record release show!
OUT - listen
Kalamazoo's OUT has been knocking around the Midwest for the past three years or so, and released a full length on Comedy Minus One last year. Their music is pretty positive, and only one of them is currently in their 30's. They have a new split 7" with Stomatopod out now, and they're wondering where a fella can get a veggie burger around here?
ANDREW COHEN & LIGHT COMA - listen
Andrew Cohen & Light Coma is a Chicago veteran rock band driven by a dual guitar attack, but is not as heavy metal as that description sounds.
SIMULATORS - listen
Seemingly drawing from a well of 30+ years worth of independent and underground rock music, Denver’s Simulators funnels the metaphorical gasoline of hyperkinetic post-punk and driving 80’s college rock bands into a melodious modern glass bottle, lights it with a rag and blows it all to hell. But in the best possible way.
SEWINGNEEDLE - listen
Chicago's Sewingneedle is made up of three deeply troubled and unhealthy dudes. Turned loose on the world in 2011, its members (Cream Kickin' Drake, Reuben Eatin' Calvin, and Truly Upset For the Wrong Reasons Danny) were raised by a single father in the suburbs of the Greater Chicagoland area, communicating by only semaphore for years while their father toiled to pay for music lessons, brewery classes, and something called "Geophysics competitions". Dude never once got a thank you. Sewingneedle's first album came out in June of 2015, and pretty quickly they were compared to such great Chicago-based rock bands as Pinebender and .22. They transcend these comparisons, creating a pretty unholy noise that's equal parts melody, pummel, and sophistication. Or 1/3 part each, with a tiny bit more given to PUMMEL. They play as if they've known each other since little times. Which they have, if you remember the above-paragraph about their long-suffering, single father who worked endlessly for these ingrates. Sewingneedle has recently been in the studio, completing work on their next album, User Error. Recorded and mixed yet again by the hilarious and capable Greg Norman (GY!BE, Pinebender, Asunders, Bottomless Pit), this banger will be out sometime by the end of 2017. They plan on playing a few shows throughout the summer, and continue to ignore calls from their brilliant, broken father. Straight to voicemail, y'all. That's how they roll. – Ike Turner (Minutes, OUT), Sewingneedle band dad.

Los Crudos meets Pavement
DRILLING FOR BLASTING - listen
Drilling for Blasting is a new two piece band that sounds like a three and a half piece, with drummer Kammy Lee and guitarist Douglas Ward, both members of 97-shiki and Fourth Rotor. Its the sort of loud, weird, odd, but grooving tunes that you might or might not expect from these two old fucking dogs.
LITTLE DAVE MERRIMAN (of The Arrivals)
Little Dave plays in The Arrivals. He also really likes Guided By Voices. So much so, that he fronts a GBV tribute band called Textbook Committee. He also does an amazing Ice-T impression, raps, and knows a lot about house music.
