TV MIKE & THE SCARECROWES

Mon. Sep. 25 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
TV MIKE & THE SCARECROWES - listen
T.V. Mike and the Scarecrowes are a Cosmic Twang Stomp band hailing from the West Coast via Indiana. Their songs follow the aesthetic of the Great American Songbook. The core of the group moved to California in 2007 and have been rolling up and down mountains and deserts since.
TV Mike aka Mike Klinge began playing music in Bloomington, IN in 1999 under The Pious Companion. The group went on a tour and had the pleasure of opening up for The Constantines and My Morning Jacket. In 2005, TV Mike met Andrea DelaRosa and gathered a backing band called the Scarecrowes. The group then moved to California and has rotated through a lot of members with the core of TV Mike, Andrea DelaRosa, Matt Lundquist, and Aaron Deer staying consistent.
THE COUNTRY DOCTORS - listen
The Country Doctors founded their practice in 2001. They refer to themselves as an “alt-classic-neo-traditionalist-honkabilly band.” Their roots are in the heartfelt repertoire of country musicians who played and sang with a purity of emotion often lacking in the genre today, while at the same time embracing contemporary artists who share a similar approach to country music.
BECKY LEVI & MIKE VANIER
Becky and Mike share a love for country music and the transformative power of live shows. These two Chicago natives fused their love of Roots Music, Jazz and Americana to create an alt country sound featuring powerful vocal harmonies and unforgettable guitar riffs. A singer songwriter, Becky’s quest to discover the origin of Old-time country took her from the hills of Southwest Virginia to the deserts of West Africa. Upon her return to Chicago, she performed with Chicago folk band Glass Mountain and most recently, Jim Becker, sharing the stage with Frank Fairfield, Larry Keel Experience, Lindsay Lou and the Flatbellys, and Robbie Fulks. After studying jazz guitar at Berklee College of Music, Mike found himself drawn to the sounds of acoustic music. And after touring nationally with a Broadway production, he formed the Leadfoot Bluegrass band that has shared the stage with Yonder Mountain String Band, Sara Watkins, Sam Bush & Jerry Douglass, Railroad Earth and at the John Hartford Memorial folk festival. After their debut performance at ‘A Day in the Country’ at Chicago’s The Hideout in June, they are excited to release their new EP recorded by producer and engineer Jim Becker in the fall of 2017!!

BEAUTY SCHOOL - listen

SHE SPEAKS IN TONGUES - listen
Simultaneously frightening and awakening, SSIT is a vision that brings together brave voices of women in rock-and-roll to expose oppressive forces at present and throughout history. Inspired by ancient Blues veterans, iconic R&B, power-rock of the 1970s, and the experimental music of today. She speaks in tongues is the band that pulls audiences away from the bar and onto their feet. Featuring members of Panoramic & True and The Clams.
IMPULSIVE HEARTS - listen
Impulsive Hearts is Chicago in the summertime, beaches, swimming after dark, dance parties, bright colors, sweat, glitter, and love on an endless loop.
SUGARPULP - listen
A nostalgic basement groove with lots of femme and whiskey on it’s breath, Sugarpulp's self-titled EP is consistently contagious. It's an adventure from the sharp and punchy to the smoky and narcotic. United in their passion for the stage, Sugarpulp was founded in 2016 by some theater kids from across the country who found each other in Chicago. The fusion of their creative talents form a vibe that is uniquely Sugarpulp, rooted in hypnotic beats, dance-your-pants-off energy and teeth to tear-up your senses. Guitar and vocals by Sam Allyn, Patrick Foley on bass, and drums from Patrick Riley meld with front-woman Deb Chesterman's arrow like voice and poetically pulp lyrics to bring you their self-described 'Dirt Pop.'






VAMPYRE

Mon. Oct. 02 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
VAMPYRE - listen
Noisy punk trio from Austin, TX fueled by thrifting and satanism.
JT KELLEY
JT Kelley relocated to Austin, Texas after Sacramento decided he was the funniest comedian in the city. Since then, he has performed stand up on stages at festivals, comedy clubs, and colleges throughout Texas. Opening for acts like Kyle Kinane, the Lucas Bros, Neil Hamburger, and Chris Castles. JT immediately endears himself to any listener with silliness and honesty that will keep you listening and laughing.
THE ABLEIST - listen
Chicago’s the Ableist plays punk that resides on the dismal side of hardcore. In addition to discussing political and social issues, their willingness to tackle subjects such as depression, addiction, abuse, and disability, works to their advantage, creating an honest approach to a genre often confining. The Ableist is currently recording their debut LP.
WARP SPIDERS - listen
Warp Spiders is a two-piece rock group from Manhattan Illinois formed by Aaron Follmer (Todd, B. Wood. Jr., and Dunwich Rats) on guitar, bass, and vocals, and John Stanis (Bad Saddles, and formerly of Papaya and Murpurs) on drums and percussion.






MILKED

Fri. Oct. 06 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
MILKED - listen
Milked is the project of Kelly Johnson (ex-Geronimo!). You can place your dislike or indifference of its music squarely on his shoulders. The rest of Geronimo! comprises the live band for Milked. Geronimo! is still good friends. The songs from Death on Mars, Milked’s first “proper” full-length, were written by Kelly Johnson in the spring/summer of 2015, right after Geronimo! ended. They were recorded with Nicholas Papaleo through the summer of 2015 – fall of 2016. The album features Matt Schwerin (ex-Geronimo!), and Andrew and Nate Lanthrum (Troubled Hubble).
SAT. NITE DUETS - listen
Emanating from the heartland, Sat. Nite Duets make rock music that evokes the spirit and candor of the Midwest’s greatest outsiders. Imagine the heroism of GBV thrown against the self-reproach of the Violent Femmes and you're halfway there. Pepper on some of the depravity of Jimmy and Dennis Flemion and you’re basically in the homestretch. But there’s something else going on here too, something that has to do with how most of the members have played music together since middle school, how collectively they’ve probably listened to The Basement Tapes and Blue Album like 3 million times.
NATURE MACHINE - listen
A collage of politics and poetry, Nature Machine takes itself with a large grain of salt. Nature Machine is a dance party on the tightrope between creation and destruction. Art is pointless and everything is frequency. Death is real and grooving is imminent. Time is a social construct. Wink.
TELETHON - listen
Telethon are boy friends who make rocking tunes on the topic of modern living.






GLAZER

Sun. Oct. 08 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
GLAZER - listen
Long time participants of the famed New Brunswick basement scene, Glazer emerged in early 2014. After multiple line-up changes, Glazer locked into a tight configuration at the head of 2016. Adding Jeff Hersch on drums, the group began developing new material, and recorded a four song EP titled “Repeat Sequence”, which was self-released on cassette in September of 2016. Since then, the band has continued to develop their disjointed, frenzied composition style, paired with their pensive lyrical content.
MUNCH - listen
Rising up from the gutters still drunk from the night before, this heavy outfit packs one heavy, fuzzed out punch. Through the wild, booze-infused chaos, comes a sound true to their '80s Chicago punk roots. All the while munching out in a wild sexual swagger demonstrating that if these post punks know anything, it's how to put on quite a show.
BLAKE - listen
Fuzz in your face.






HOW IT GOT BURNED

Mon. Oct. 09 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
HOW IT GOT BURNED - listen

Since it's inception in 2015, Ann Arbor based Fallow Land has played shows in small towns and major cities including Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland, and Toronto. Fallow Land seeks to blend odd-meter, polyrhythm, texture, and conventional song structure to create innovative yet accessible compositions.
WILD AMPHORA - listen
Wild Amphora is a progressive rock band from Fargo, North Dakota. Comprised of four musicians with diverse and often intersecting backgrounds in underground music, the band excels at building complex songs that live in the margins between genres. Post-rock guitar textures swirl beneath tight vocal harmonies; bluesy solos may lead to psychedelic grooves, or give way to hardcore riff worship. Whether they are playing to sooth or bludgeon, Wild Amphora deliver their tunes with considerable chops and a sense of adventure.
TWO SETS OF EYES - listen
In the midst of a sonic landscape between the floods and fires of Earth, a trio of friends and musicians come together to express their most prominent thoughts and feelings in song.

A progressive blend of Post Punk, Hip Hop, Pop, and Jazz.

Fri. Nov. 03 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
HUNTSMEN - listen
They might sound like your average post-rock band at first but hints of heavy metal, prog rock, and even some blues find their way into the mix. This is of course before they crumble into noisy, stoner-metal breakdowns that leave you wondering what this sorcery was that you just witnessed." -Midwest Action, March 2014

Chainsaws fighting in a dump truck. Melodic punk rock outfit based out of Chicago, IL.
DEAD BARS - listen
Drinking is supposed to be fun. There is a reason why people crowd the night clubs and wait in long lines for bars: there is energy, there is excitement, and most important, there is possibility. But if you’ve ever drank at a dead bar, you won’t experience any of this. Time moves slow as you drink and think about the good and bad times, and everything you could have done better.
HAYMARKET RIOT - listen
Taking a good piece of the Jesus Lizard's groove 'n' grind and then texturing that with strident punk chords and almost prog guitar licks, Haymarket Riot defy categorization. They definitely fall a bit more on the punk end of the spectrum, but they mix things up with a lot of other influences and some very unique songwriting. The base of Haymarket Riot's sound is the heavy, emotional Midwestern punk sound that descends from bands like Husker Du and Naked Raygun but there's awhole lot more than just soul-bearing going on here. In particular, Haymarket Riot are particularly ambitious arrangers, dropping instruments in and out of the mix with a dub-inspired glee.
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.
