DIM is a steadily-rising Chicago band that crafts aggressive, heavy shoegaze. The songs have a deep, arresting quality that lock into a groove and distort the senses, leaving the listener broken and begging for more. Though it may feel like DIM is attempting to tear apart your perception of reality, they'll hook you back with lush-yet-noisy instrumentation that's reminiscent of early-MY BLOODY VALENTINE and RIDE. We welcome TORTURE LOVE back to Bottle stage for the first time since opening for THEE OH SEES back in Nov '16. They Came Crawling, released as a joint effort of Protagonist Music and Pressure Group, represents the tacit culmination of their varied influence and sonic exploration. Every time we see these guys they have proven to be a wild but cohesive four-piece. The COCKTAIL TWINS DJs spin throughout the night and we've got another special guest TBA. Very good Free Monday.
