Empty Bottle, Chicago, IL
21 years and over
Since forming in Brighton in 2008, ESBEN AND THE WITCH have forged a sound that springs forth from minds soaked in influences far and beyond any standard set of musical touchstones. Nature and literature, art and science, history and the unknown – the trio eschews the everyday for inspiration drawn from sources weird and wonderful. Experimental psych-doom rockers HELIOTROPES are traveling with ESBEN AND THE WITCH for this tour from their native Brooklyn and they'll be making their Empty Bottle debut tonight. Pretty loud and pretty, Chicago's AIRIEL have been together since 1997 and tonight the duo bring their expansive drum and synth approach to the Bottle with all the familiar accoutrements: catchy melodies, lush guitars, danceable rhythms and lasting dreaminess. One of our favorites, DJ PHILLY PEROXIDE will be spinning the dark and synthy and apocalyptic sounding tunes throughout the night.
