Man or Astro-Man? / Jacuzzi Boys / The Bingers / DJ Ryan Weinstein

Empty Bottle, Chicago, IL
21 years and over
The sonic space cadets in MAN OR ASTROMAN? mashed surf, sci-fi, punk, samples and Tesla coils into a jagged rock juggernaut, touring nonstop in the 90s before burning out at the dawn of the 00s. But the Alabama-based band has rebooted for the 10s, and returns to interface live with us here tonight. After their compellingly fun and wacky active years on Touch and Go, the group took damn-near twelve years and now return to the “not-too-distant future” they once sang about with a new record, Defcon 5…4…3…2…1, out in late May on Vessels. Joining them tonight are Miami garage punk heathens JACUZZI BOYS, a trio of misfits that we're damn excited to welcome back to our stage. Marrying straight ahead rock with some serious fuzzed-out guitars, Chicago's THE BINGERS open tonight's show with their sweet summer sidewalk jams that contain an undercurrent of dangerous reverb. Our old pal RYAN WEINSTEIN will be DJing throughout the night, so show up early and stick around later for part 2 of the rock'n'roll bonanza of the weekend.
