Mon May 22, 2017 9:00 pm Free Monday!
Our powerpop/rock 'n' roll/punk pals in BLOOM are releasing an EP, and we're celebrating Free Monday style! Hailing from Chicago, BLOOM was started by front woman Sam Larson after reading a poorly scribbled Pablo Naruda poem in a bathroom stall, Larson created BLOOM as an eulogy for a lost love. BLOOM is always expanding, changing, and celebrating the power of love.
NEST is 90s sweet grunge reincarnate. Guitarists Tommy Owley and Stephanie Maieritsch combine compositions that forge a sound reminiscent of GUIDED BY VOICES, giving the listener a familiar indie 90’s rock feel. Maieritsch, who writes most of NEST's songs, belts intimate lyrics with an authenticity that recalls Chrissie Hynde while the band maintains an infectious pop-grunge sound, not distant from that of VERUCA SALT and HOLE. After playing venues across Chicago for more than a year, the band released its first full-length album Mother's Knife in late 2016.
JUNKEE GIRL is a rock/indie/punk band from Chicago. Their album Sophomore was released in October of 2015.
