    This is Walking Bicycle's LP Release show. Highwheel Records will be giving away 100 free download cards of Walking Bicycles new release to first 100 people in! 

    It's Monday, so you know what that means around these parts - a FREE SHOW for you fine people of Chicago (and beyond). Propulsive post-punk band WALKING BICYCLES will be returning to our stage and we're stoked to welcome them back. Founded in the Pacific Northwest in 2004, their first record, a six-song self-titled EP of dark and peculiar music was released in 2005. They then moved to Chicago and now have four releases under their belt(s) plus what SPIN describes as a “Dynamic, genre defying act.” TOUPEE are a treat live – a treat wrapped in barbed wire ready to explode the instant it touches your lips. Playing their battered and bruised punk rock to a steadily growing number of rabid fans, TOUPEE have become something of a staff favorite and are heroes in the local underground. UNMANNED SHIP use thick, repetitive bass lines and screaming guitars to bob heads and shake floors. Expect them to bring their wall of amps and stoner heavy sounds to shatter your ears and leave you gasping for air. Raw, noisy and, at times, dangerous. LIL TITS, a dynamic trio of riot grrrl-influenced punk that they have dubbed “feminalism”, will start things off for this all-Chicago, all-awesome, all-searing night of music. Plus, have you seen the event photo for this? Come on.
