$12 Adv. / $15 Day of / 21 & over / Doors: 7pm / Show: 8pm
Chicago band All Weather Sports designs a classic indie rock structure that glows with the restless of dream-punk. Electric ukuleleist Sarai Warner, bassist Liz Jenson, guitarist Connor Mahern and drummer Reuben Gifford make music that revisits the gut-punch of adolescence and stumbles through the winding bike path of adulthood, performed in both singsong and scream. At the core of the sound is an eagerness to wiggle, evolve and bop throughout life despite the new and reflective tremors.
Unsolicited Feedback, Chicago-based 6-piece band, brings noise backed by mathy changeups to explore everything from love to late-stage-capitalism-inspired rage. Songs like “The Summer” and “Hold On” tell two sides of band members Sahar and Reuben’s relationship, navigating both the draw to one another and the challenges of long distance. “Reopening” kvetches about the struggles of adjusting to lockdown ending. Instead of taking themselves too seriously, Unsolicited Feedback makes fun of their grievances and lets you into their lives.
CDPROM is a math-jazz-rock band from Chicago, IL. With melodies etched from a disk from a distant planet, CDPROM delights in the unexpected and the hard-to-pin-down. For fans of horns, cheekiness, and transcendent mundanity.
