STONDAR

Sat. Jan. 20 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
STONDAR - listen
From the darkest reaches of space, the last survivors of a dying world, Stondar have come to earth with an unquenchable thirst for vengeance. A thirst that can only be satiated with high decibel crushing doom.
Stondar is Gabe Bott on guitars and John Marino on drums.
Building on the Chicago tradition of instrumental metal from the likes of Pelican, Russian Circles, and Bongripper, Stondar takes that intensity and strips it to its core. Drums and riffs, no filler and no pretense, just crushing beats and sludgy jams.
ATONEMENT THEORY - listen
Atonement Theory delivers crushing riffs, painting darkness with melodic ethereal brushstokes. These four songs are unquestionably an emotional journey from beginning to end. Jay transports you with the dark, driving, and forceful core of Isis, the melodic emotional melancholy of Failure and the omnipresent atmospheric heaviness of Neurosis.
THE FERAL GHOSTS - listen
The Feral Ghosts formed in the winter of 2014 emerging from Chicago's late night scene. Originally a five-piece band The more recent quartet consists of Alex on the guitar Tuko on the bass, Robert on the drums, and Annu behind the mic.

Violet Mice is the long-time project of Chicago’s bedroom-glam maven Ian McDuffie. No longer content to keep the glitter indoors, they're now backed by a full group of beautiful boys ready to bring the anarcho-glam-glow.
THE IMAGINATRON - listen
The Imaginatron is an all-expansive node of energies thrusting forth from the infinite realities. The band The Imaginatron is a tribute to the entity The Imaginatron. The band attempts to engage and invoke as many of these cosmic energies as possible via the use of dirty synth beats, jazzy guitar, angular erratic vocal spasms and spontaneous rituals that bridge the gap between ancient pagan calls and childhood glee.
BIG MERMAID

LE TOUR

Wed. Jan. 31 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
BATH ASSAULTS - listen
Risen from the Heart of the American Beast, cobbled together from bands prior and contemporary as the Mac Blackout Band, HEAVY MEDZ, Plasma Drive and MANACONDA, Bath Assaults come to revel in Summer's Glory with sacraments of Future Drugs and Steel Riddles, wrought in Iron and Salt. Anything Less would be Uncivilized.

THE VELCRO LEWIS GROUP

Thu. Feb. 15 - 8:00 pm - 21+ -
THE VELCRO LEWIS GROUP - listen
The Velcro Lewis Group is Earth's premier acid-rock, space-funk septet. The band twists the aesthetics of Funkadelic, Hawkwind, Temptations, and Black Sabbath into their own living -breathing planet of sound. Lead by Hawk Colman, the brother with the 5 octave range, honky tonk veteran, Lawrence Peters singing bass and scrubbing the washboard, and blind growler/Moog-eater, Andy Slater, people can't deny the commands and demands shouted from the stage. Travers Gauntt's Skylab crashing guitars shake and quake, Alison Hunger's psychic Theremin shreds the tapestry of time, drummer Izzy Price is actually Ian Paice, and Halden Spoonwood's bass playing has more pocket than a pair of overalls, revealing the band to be a source of both confusion and totality. Once it becomes possible to drive an Impala through space and time the Velcro Lewis Group Will be hot glued into the tape deck. All aboard the Starship Impala!
DARK FOG - listen
This local quartet features guitarists Kevin Walsh and Ray Donato, cofounders of Chicago's Original Sound Recordings label--home to Buried at Sea, Behold! the Living Corpse, and Bible of the Devil, among others. Dark Fog's three-song seven-inch single on OSR is lanky, languid, and lushly murky--three thick strands of psychedelic drool that writhe like a pit of serpents.
PROTOVULCAN - listen
Protovulcan… finally, the synth punks are playing acid rock!






ONE MORE MOON

Sat. Feb. 17 - 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.
