THE DUMPSTER BABIES will once again grace the Bottle stage with their uncompromising brand of "Dumb Dumb Rock and Roll"... This fun-lovin' four-piece has played loads of kick-ass shows on our stage and their sound can probably be best described in their own words: "We like to sing, we like to dance, sometimes we make pee-pee in our pants." These surfin’ power poppers love it when you chuck your empty beer cans at em, so come down and hurl away! Nashville’s PENICILLIN BABY hijacked their name from a David Cross sketch on Mr. Show. Rich psychedelic pop melodies, pounding bass, fuzzzzzz, and drum beats make it impossible not to dance - there’s no telling where this trip known as Penicillin Baby will go, but one thing’s for damn sure: it won’t be boring. Chicago's CITY STATES open the evening! Gradual, careful, and deliberate, they write and perform tightly-wound pop tunes that trade in the 80's dance-rock of their members' former band, MODERN TEMPER, for increasingly complex arrangements. Ghostly synth loops combine with IDM-inspired drum programming and silky baritone vocals to create lush synth-pop with leanings of post- and progressive-rock.
