In their very brief existence, FEVER THE GHOST have made quite an impression with their uncanny, spectacular live performances, quickly becoming the one band on the tip of everyone’s tongues within LA’s "hippest" parts of town (Silverlake/Echo Park). While the band's grandiose rush on the senses dependably transports audiences into their strange universe, what’s even more remarkable is how fully-formed their sophisticated sound arrives, cleverly weaving addictive hooks into their forward-thinking psych-pop pastiche. The band released their debut EP, Crab Honey, just last month and are getting praise for their warped, spacey pop tunes that have gleefully glammy tendencies. Chicago's CASIMER & CASIMIR are an uncle-nephew duo whose first single, "Oh Sweet Joe Pye," has caused quite a stir on the old internet machine. The song has made its rounds, racking up over 100,000 listens and grabbing the attention of many a music writer/blogger/tweeter. The uncle, CASIMIR PASCAL, fronted the Detroit-based pop band PAS/CAL until 2008nd tonight marks the Empty Bottle debut of this new family project. Psychedelic desert-rockers DEAD NATIVE make their triumphant return to the Bottle to open tonight's show and though they sound like a group that might hail from the American Southwest, this four-piece calls Chicago home. The heavy-psych band released their debut album, Keep It Strange, last April and it's a blissfully fuzzed-out effort of strange but familiar, experimental pop songs. Keep an eye out for a new DEAD NATIVE record, coming to your sunburnt ears later this year.
