Tue. Sep. 17 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
FREE SHOW!
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.

STARING PROBLEM

Tue. Sep. 24 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
FREE SHOW!
STARING PROBLEM - listen
Out of the near-impenetrable darkness of Carbondale, IL, emerges Staring Problem, a pretty good band. While their ideal aesthetic is one of unrelenting goth-as-fuck punishment, their "pop sensibility," shaky grasp of the fundamentals of their instruments, general good humor, and love of beer prevent them from ever being fully subsumed by the darkness.

ULTIMATELY FRUITLESS

Sun. Oct. 06 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
FREE SHOW!
ULTIMATELY FRUITLESS - listen
Ultimately Fruitless is drunk-existentialist-waking-up-on-the-beach music made by three guys who want to play your party and then burn your house down while discussing how pointless it is, but not in a dick way. Their music is surfy and punky and sometimes poppy when they're not trying to scrape your face off. Like if Best Coast and Fidlar grew up and got into a fight with Pixies at Interpol's house which was refereed by Julian Casablancas who was too distracted drinking 40s with Modest Mouse to pay attention.
BURLY GATES - listen
Burly Gates is a Surf Psych Garage band based in Chicago, IL They draw inspiration from bands a wide variety of different genres to make up their unique sound.

JEFF SCHALLER & THE LONG WAY HOME

Sun. Nov. 10 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
FREE SHOW!
JEFF SCHALLER & THE LONG WAY HOME - listen
Jeff Schaller is a Chicago based singer, songwriter, composer, teacher, and classical musician. His band, Jeff Schaller and the Long Way Home (formerly Movies About Animals) takes musical inspiration from a wide range of sources both literary and musical. Like most Midwestern kids, Schaller grew up listening to all the emo and punk bands coming out of the area and beyond as well as all of the alternative rock on the airwaves in the early 90's, but one of his earliest and most prevalent influences that shines through in his songwriting is Bruce Springsteen. The band released their debut album "Two Decades and Change" in 2017 under the former name and quickly moved further away from the early Wonder Years-esque, pop-punk inspired songs of their early catalogue. The name change came as a natural result of this shift in sound, which is often compared to the likes of The Menzingers, Springsteen, Gin Blossoms, Gaslight Anthem, The Killers, The Get Up Kids and any other punk-adjacent rock and roll band around. The music still holds the raw energy of their early days, but with a more honest and heartfelt approach to craft. It has been described as "effective, genuine, and catchy simplicity." Schaller's love for classical music can be heard in the large arrangements of instruments on any given track and in the smallest amount of compostionally informed detail. The newest single "Younger Years" was released in early 2019. Jeff Schaller and the Long Way Home are currently writing and recording for their next release due sometime in the Summer of 2019.
JAKE SIMMONS & THE LITTLE GHOSTS - listen
Jake Simmons, one of two songwriting talents behind the excellent (but now defunct) Dead Scene Radio, is back. With a hand picked supporting cast and unapologetic swagger, Jake is taking his blend of punk, rock, country, pop and folk out of a southwest Michigan garage and onto your turntable. With the Little Ghosts (essentially a complete motown-era rhythm machine) in lockstep, Jake's live show swings wildly from soulful acoustic ballads, to catchy doo-wop, to cascading sheets of caterwauling feedback. Always brash, always honest, usually with a middle fucking finger to convention, Jake is a true archetypical midwestern singer-songwriter who laces up his steel-toed work boots each day without a hint of irony.
ALL THE WINE - listen
Hailing from the musty basements of Chicago's peripherals, All the Wine pours out electrifying rock 'n' roll and melodic punk. Reminiscent of punk and emo favorites such as Against Me!, The Hotelier and The Menzingers, All the Wine is both tenderly evocative and unforgivably hard-hitting. The trio has over four regional tours under their belt, as well as two EPs that introduce listeners to the band’s aggressive yet reflective nature.
