21 years and over
It's the FUCK KNIGHTS and they're coming back to the Empty Bottle! It takes a brave band to have their first release be a live compilation of songs. Some might say it takes a crazy band to have their second release be a live compilation of tracks recorded throughout the Midwest, but that's exactly what Minneapolis's FUCK KNIGHTS have done on FuKn Live! Vol. 1 and FuKn Live! Vol. 2. It's a testament to their live power that both of these releases are thoroughly and enjoyably listenable through headphones and even more exciting live. The past two years these KNIGHTS have grown up and released their first studio-recorded full length, Let It Bleed on Italy's Boss Hoss Records, and an EP last year, Real Love on Chicago's Cold Slice Cassettes, that highlight these boys chops for dirtied up 60s-influenced rock'n'roll. For tonight's FREE Monday they're joined by two bands making their Bottle debuts, both of which are from Chicago. THE LUCKS, pronounced "Da'Lucks" here in Chicago (get it?), blend surf, punk and 60s garage with alternating vocals and invite audience participation to bring back rock'n'roll's most essential ingredient: FUN!!! Fuzzy, grimy Chicagoans FLESH PANTHERS kick things off with their staggering, schizophrenic garage punk that's sure to rip you a new one, whatever that one might be.
