Jangly pop/bop folk something or other, THE BEARS OF BLUE RIVER are all of that at first glance, but upon a deeper look you start to see that they cover a lot of ground with their tunes. Different influences and different era's begin to shine through from track to track, some soft and innocent, others sharp and anxious. The song writing seems to balance or sometimes discern amusing insights on relationships, growing pains, and other things entirely relatable even in their most nonspecific sense. Let us introduce you to TOM SCHRAEDER & HIS EGO and let him spread its joy around our room. SCHAEDER's tireless musical approach is always held together on a cohesive level by the songs themselves. They could be strummed, electronic, ambient or maybe even hip hop - you'll have to show up to find out what we'll get tonight. Enigmatic Chicago five-piece DOCTOR PYRAMID open tonight's Free Monday with their unique, melodic take on alternative rock with a psychedelic twist.
