We’re kicking off 2013’s string of FREE Mondays at the Bottle with three in-your-face Chicago bands who, if you don’t already know, you will soon as they’re making their way up through the city’s underground. PIG CHAMPION is a thrash/hardcore band at its finest who plays by their own rules and want to remind you that “this ain’t showbiz,” even when it is. The four-piece band plays heavy, loud, screamy tunes that you won’t find in grandma’s drawers or your mom’s cassette deck. TERMINAL MAN bring a grassroots hardcore background to their noisier, more experimental approach, with an end result that’s something like the sonic equivalent of being executed by a firing squad while on heavy psychedelics. WAR BRIDES exhibit a post-hardcore sound to their grown up sludge. Hell bent on a series of rabid, angry experiences littered over youthful, anthemic beauty, their peaceful melodies are scattered about in a coherent, and tasteful way. The night of thrash, hardcore, noisy experimental psych, grindcore and math-rocky metal is upon us – what a way to kick off this year’s Free Mondays!
