VORTIS took their name from pre-World War I Vorticist movement spearheaded which had a goal: “to perpetuate violent structures of adolescent clarity” throughout life; that is, to live with the lust for life and joie de vivre of a teenager, which the band members thought was an ideal definition of rock ’n’ roll. VORTIS continues to assault Chicago audiences with its unique brand of agitainment—more powerful than ever, and more necessary.
The Cathy Santonies are bringing back simple rock n roll and it’s about time! We’re cocky, loud, full of wild energy, and catchy as hell. Our music is a subversive mix of riot grrrl & cock rock—now don’t you wanna hear what that sounds like?
DAYS OFF (member of Fourth Rotor)
What more could you really ask for? As punkrock evolved from single cells in the seventies, the evolutionary tree branched out in many directions. Near the base of one of these phylogenic families were the Minutemen, the Replacements, and other less well known species. Long has science thought that this branch was very, very extinct. In the fall of 2005, Days Off was discovered in Chicago; stunning the world. Perhaps as ancient as the Loch Ness Monster, or perhaps a bizarre chimera formed in a lab, with Springsteen DNA substituted for where there were gaps...only one thing is certain: Days Off is jamming in the scene.
No Two Waynes carries on the great Chicago punk sound to a new generation. Fast drums, great melodies, and solid guitar riffs are just a few reasons to listen to No Two Waynes. This quartet burns through a set fast and as good as any band. They don't waste a minute with chatter.
