Hey guys - come "stop the world and melt" with the Empty Bottle tonight. Sorry...but you totally walked right into that one. UK post-punk vets MODERN ENGLISH will be returning to America to perform their incredible early 4AD material on their Mesh & Lace Tour. That includes the hit song "I Melt With You" and music off their first three albums, Mesh & Lace, After The Snow and Ricochet Days, released from 1981-1984. Unfortunately BURNT HAIR is no longer joining MODERN ENGLISH for the Midwest run of this tour, but they've been replaced by some stellar openers. SILENT AGE is a new post-punk band with members of Chicago's Population and Minneapolis' CLAPS. VEIL VITRIC are Chicago goths. Dark and brooding, their sound harkens back to early FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM and features members of CEMETERY. Kicking the night off is ORDER OF NIGHT, a band we've been seeing and hearing quite a lot of lately. Their gloaming death rock is spreading the night throughout this damn city. This show is presented in collaboration with ANALOG SIGNALS, a post punk, new wave, punk, 80's industrial and synth based music DJ Collective. Founded early 2013, dark and bleak pulses are their specialty. Returning to spin dark and synthy tunes thorughout the night is our friend DJ PHILLY PEROXIDE.
