LAZY BONES is an alternative-indie trio formed in Ithaca, NY. With members having deep roots in the indie scenes of Chicago, Brooklyn, and DC. They blend a variety of local inspirations with a shared love for the music of bands such as Tame Impala, UMO, Grizzly Bear, and the Strokes. Caleb Matheson (drums), Brendan Olivieri (bass/ keys/ vocals), and Sam Stein (guitar/ vocals), met while studying sound recording technology at Ithaca College. They began writing songs together in early 2017 and over the summer they hit IC's Borg Warner studio to begin recording their debut full length - due early 2018. Since September '17 the trio has been writing, recording, and gigging every hour they're not in class. They played alongside touring acts LUNG and STRING MACHINE at Top Button Records' Day of the Dead show in State College, PA. They also recently opened for Chicago punk-rockers PET SYMMETRY at the Haunt in Ithaca, NY, and opened for indie-rock sweethearts DIET CIG's sold out Ithaca Haunt show on December 8th.
Officially formed in 2015, Boston’s WHATEVER WHATEVER is made up of Elizabeth Duska (vocals), Dylan Brown (bass), Will Butera (drums), and Sam Matheson (guitar). The band was started after a series of jam sessions between Will and Sam, they later added Dylan Brown due to his tasteful musical whims, and finally Elizabeth completed the line up with her powerful, yet controlled vocals. In 2016 they recorded their debut EP "Who's This?" which was released in August and supported by an east coast tour. The band is currently recording a follow up EP with an exciting live performance that strays from the typical indie rock show so present in today’s concerts.
Chicago's own JAMES SWANBERG kicks it off. Always a pleasure to have him on our stage, so show up early and support this non-stop hit machine.
