Sarah and Justin's Ten Year Anniversary Show!
THE BROKEDOWNS - listen
Los Crudos meets Pavement
DRILLING FOR BLASTING - listen
Drilling for Blasting is a two piece band that sounds like a three and a half piece. "Making music un-relate-able to the common man, but beloved by musicians and sound engineers". 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.






PROTAGONIST

Sat. Apr. 21 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
FREE SHOW!
PROTAGONIST - listen
Hidden behind the plastic aesthetic and the masses of Boca Raton, Florida, a city known more for its riches and beaches than music, Protagonist play their own brand of anthemic melodic punk rock led by desperate vocals, racing guitars, and an unrelenting drum assault. Protagonist uses punk rock in its most bare-bones definition; an outlet for everything right and wrong in the world.
DIVIDED HEAVEN - listen
Youngblood, the second Divided Heaven full length, marks an arrival. What started as a solo project for Jeff Berman while studying in Europe ten years, tens of thousands of miles, and many sing-alongs ago has come to fruition, both for Berman and his loyal fans. This sophomore effort, produced by Charlie Stavish (Imagine Dragons, Ryan Adams) showcases a resounding progression in style and dynamic that introduces, for the first time, Divided Heaven as a full band.
TEEN AGERS - listen
Ever curious what would occur if you combined multiple quarter-life crises, a penchant for bottom-tier booze in plastic bottles and a Flanders-sized repertoire of puns in a punk rock powder keg? Erupting like a sonic Cthulhu from beneath the Florida swamps comes Teen Agers, the brainchild of four gentlemen with enough functioning neurons to constitute one able-bodied adult. With plenty of melody to satisfy the crowd at your rad wine mixers and hearty helpings of riffage guaranteed to satiate your unmitigated adolescent angst, Teen Agers are the result of an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object; just…a bit slower, so as to not pull something.






SADIE AND THE STARK

Sun. Apr. 22 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
SADIE AND THE STARK - listen
Sadie and the stark is Tom, John, Anthony, and Sadie. A femme-rock, fantasy band for your soul majoring in sci-fi.

Steve (guitar, vocals, keys) and Sarah (drums, vocals, keys) met in the spring of 2014, and started working on music together shortly after. A few months later Graham, newly arrived from DC, joined on bass. They had drinks together at a tiki bar, and thus, Cat Daiquiri came to be.
LOA HEX - listen
Loa Hex brings big riff rock n’ roll from Chicago’s northwest side. Hitting hard with Midwestern hooks, metal-tinged panache and heartfelt songwriting, Loa Hex conjures powerful music that connects with an audience. With a live show that blends an intimate communion with the mystic energy of a backwoods revival, Loa Hex walks the fine line between great band and theatrical experience.

From the Start has been playing punk and alternative music together in various iterations throughout Chicago and the surrounding suburbs for nearly 20 years. Their debut EP entitled 'Nautical Disasters' was released this year. Drawing on the tradition of the basement and small-club rock scene their members grew up in, From the Start has been generating a wide variety of energetic and colorful new rock sounds.
BOARDINGHOUSE REACH - listen
Formed in the sweat and indulgence of the summer of '17, Boardinghouse Reach dials the clock back to the tone and spirit of 90's punk that simultaneously elicits Americana and aggression. Warm tones, rattling rhythm and howling words are the life line for a sound heavily inspired by Avail, Kid Dynamite and Jawbreaker.






ACCEPTOR

Thu. May. 03 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
PLANETSEXPLODER - listen
PLANETSEXPLODER is the faculty band of The Hopewell Brewing Company, a two-year old Logan-square based brewery and taproom. That's it.

GNARBOYZ - listen
Gnarboyz is a collective of Dads and Buds that all work together and decide who is going to play the show the week before it based on that week's work schedule.

DELMAR

Thu. May. 10 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
DELMAR - listen
"Delmar & the Dedications reel with R&B grooves and catchy melodies, all of which is neatly (and without a gimmicky feel) trimmed with vocal fuzz and guitar static." - Chicago Sun Times (1/19/11)
DANY LAJ & THE LOOKS - listen
Dany Laj’s heartfelt songs seamlessly meld together elements of rock, folk, and punk, without straying too far from the power-pop roots that give the tunes a certain joie de vivre, with nods to tunesmiths like Nick Lowe and Paul Westerberg. The narrative weaved together by Laj’s powerful yet unpretentious lyrics tells the tale of the Northern Ontario kid trying to find his way south.
POISON BOYS - listen

Arson are committed to making work that promotes conversation around tolerance, equality, communication, and human rights.
DAYMAKER
Daymaker is a punk project, providing songs that are powerful, infectious, and emotionally moving. Singer Erin Delaney’s voice is an emotional whirlwind that never loses its innate sense of melody as it rises from sweet and charming at its base, to an uncompromising existential tornado at its summit. Egon Schiele’s guitar playing bubbles and evolves like an organism in flux, and often times, acts as a second voice to Delaney’s emotional turbulence. Drummer Dina Moore's swinging rhythms and bassist Eric Newmiller's musical command are the backbone of the group, providing the aesthetic space for emotional chaos to ensue in its most powerful forms.
SONNY FALLS - listen
Sonny Falls is the songwriting project of Chicagoan Ryan “Hoagie” Wesley Ensley, who has been playing in various projects in the city for a decade, and has just completed the first batch of many, many more collections of songs, entitled There’s No Magic Left in This World. The record combines pummeling drums and huge, fuzzy harmonizing guitars, all based around a raw lyricism that creates a unique, dark voice throughout the songs.
The band is rounded out by other veterans of the Chicago Diy scene; Matthew Rogowski of the Peekaboos, Jeff Pearlman of Rat Hammer, and Calvin Schaller of Supreme Nothing. The record was recorded and produced by Michael Macdonald of Oshwa in the Bridgeport neighborhood of Chicago.

Features current members of THE COPYRIGHTS, THE NEPHRONS and HORRIBLE THINGS. At times this album charges full force into your gut with relentless hooks and at others, it infects on a more cerebral level with unexpected turns & twists.
THE MIZZERABLES - listen
Mixing gritty vocals and a poppy, melodic sensibility with a bit of an aggressive streak, the Mizzerables are the kind of punk band that makes you want to put your arm around your buddy's shoulders, raise your beer and sing at the top of your lungs. It's good time rock-and-roll meets pop punk. Drawing on influences like The Methadones, Pegboy, The Lawrence Arms and Naked Raygun, The Mizzerables are every bit a Chicago power pop punk band with a splash of Hot Water Music and early Green Day thrown in for good measure.
