THE PRZMATICS - listen
The Przmatics are a rock band from Chicago fusing power pop, alternative, prog, folk, r&b, and a myriad of other influences. The band was created as an outlet for composer Mike Przygoda who has worked as a producer and multi-instrumentalist for numerous bands in Chicago as well as music directed theatrical and dance shows all over the city. Joining him are the soaring harmonies of guitarist Stephanie Stahl (Willy Dynomite) and keyboardist Nick Gutierrez (Chicago Players) as well as the thundering bass of Ausberto Acevedo (Al Scorch's Country Soul Ensemble). Influences include Smashing Pumpkins, Prince, Paul Simon, and Jon Brion.

NICOLE BLOOMSMITH - listen
Nicole Bloomsmith is a singer/songwriter, string player, actor from Chicago. In 2017, she released her debut album FIND ME available everywhere.
AARON FOX & THE RELIABLES - listen
Aaron Fox & the Reliables started as a collaboration between Aaron Fox, guitarist and singer/songwriter, and guitarist Mike Burns. After graduating Berklee College of Music, Aaron spent many years as a solo act and listening to artists such as The Beatles, Wilco, Crowded House, Sting, and Tom Petty (and he still does) to gather inspiration for his songwriting craft. In early 2009, Fox was introduced to Burns (of The Blind Robins). Burns' influences of classic country and blues, along with a healthy dose of Led Zeppelin were evident in taking the songs in a new and exciting direction. A couple of months later, the rhythm section was made complete by bassist Bob Vodick (The Blind Robins, Pine Cone, Tools of Romance) and drummer Rick Zygowicz (X-Parrots, The DayBreakers, original [1985] member of Material Issue). Aaron Fox & the Reliables had been born.

APOCALYPSE HOBOKEN - listen
In over ten years of recording and touring the U.S. and Europe, Apocalypse Hoboken constantly pushed for new ideas of what punk rock should be. They established themselves as one of Chicago's most uncompromising bands, and a dynamic live act to boot.
THE MUSHUGANAS
Do you know? Or have you only heard? Are you so addicted to your current miserable situation that you can't remember? The group that made your Levis shrink between your thighs have reconciled and agreed to perform one last time. Bask in the glory of the primitive yet essential din of better days. Don't let another opportunity pass you by. Is this your last chance to see what life is like? Here it is. Live the Final Performance of one of the all time greats. An ensemble in a class of their own. Find out why their contemporaries dare not utter the name The Mushuganas.
RAD PAYOFF - listen
Rad Payoff continues to be one of the most cursed bands in the biz. Maybe it's because they use words like "BIZ."
SALVATION - listen
Salvation is a Noise-Rock trio out of Chicago, IL. Over a pounding rhythm section provided by Vic Riley and Santiago Guerrero, the harsh screeching guitars leave some room for Jason Sipe's palatable yet tortured vocals. Royal Fucks was released on Tape and CD in 2015 (now out of print) and in March 2017, "Sore Loser" was released by Forge Again Records.

PET SYMMETRY

Sat. Jul. 21 - 7:00 pm - All ages - BUY TICKETS HERE!
PET SYMMETRY - listen
Earnest power-pop from members of Dowsing & Into It. Over It.
BAGGAGE - listen
After over a decade in touring punk band, The Swellers, drummer Jonathan Diener moves from the back of the stage to the front. The songs being written at the time were for nothing more than self-medicating and moving on from the band's breakup, but eventually the project was all about leaving your comfort zone and doing what you've always wanted to do with no expectations. Doing it for fun again.
THE REAGANOMICS (members of Ryans Hope)
The 3 members of Ryans Hope put their heads together and wrote 20 stripped down pop punk songs in the summer of 2009. Everyone shares lead vocals, everyone writes about whatever they want, whether it's a song about Buckcherry, or making fun of indecisive scenesters, anything goes. Eddie was recruited to drum so Greg could get his hands on the singer/guitarist position. The emphasis is having a good time, and taking nothing seriously. Sloppy punk rock from 4 sloppy dudes.
THE CELL PHONES - listen
We are a three-piece that formed in Chicago in 2008 and have since been playing various venues in the city proper. Our live performance is honest and straightforward; where excess vocals and effects lack we make up for in technicality and intensity. Most of our influences draw from 60's and 80's rock, but our sound lies on a foundation of Metal, Punk and New Wave; all of which Ryan and Justin have been experimenting with since middle-school. Lindsey on the other hand provides a dramatic pop element that brings accessibility to the overall sound, striking an essential contrast that most noise and grind bands tend to neglect.






TURN N' FIRE

Sun. Jul. 29 - 6:00 pm - All ages - BUY TICKETS HERE!
TURN N' FIRE - listen
Turn N' Fire is a new Chicago band anxious to break out onto the scene. With an aggressive style of punk, power-pop, alternative rock, this duo pushes on to explore the Midwestern sound. Comprised of guitarist and lead singer Jon Kelly and drummer Sean McGill, these two musicians have had over a decade of experience playing shows and it shows. With powerful and melodic vocals and guitar lines, and chauvinistic yet tauntingly seductive drums, Turn N' Fire brings an intensity that will have you head over heels.
LA CERCA - listen
La Cerca have taken many stylistic detours in the decade since the Tucson-based rock ‘n’ roll band’s inception, but their new LP Sunrise for Everyone is where they bring all their disparate strands together. Daydream Nation (Sonic Youth) -esque maelstroms of expressionist guitar, expressive lyrics abstracted and refracted, pulled together with unforgettable pop hooks into a rock ‘n’ roll body.
CHINAROSE - listen
ChinaRose is a midwest musical collective interested with expressing our dirty suburban youth and sharing the music that oozes out of our scattered brains.
DEAD GREMMIES
We are a surf, psychedelic, punk band based out of the Belmont Gardens neighborhood of Chicago.
THESE GUYS THESE GUYS - listen
These Guys These Guys play a bit of instrumental post-rock and math-rock, drawing from a range of influences including prog, jazz, classical, and your mother.
