It's finally time for the world to take in the glorious sounds of local garage-punk rockers THE DUMPSTER BABIES, a band whose been kicking around for years and finally released their debut album this past March, courtesty of newly christened Tall Pat Records. This fun-lovin' four-piece has played loads of kick-ass shows on our stage and their sound can probably be best described in their own words: "We like to sing, we like to dance, sometimes we make pee-pee in our pants." These surfin’ power poppers love it when you chuck your empty beer cans at em, so come down and hurl away! Local fuzz-rockers THE RUNNIES return to our stage with their emphatic, anthemic brand of garage rock n’ roll that's steeped in psychedelia and fronted by a smoky-voiced siren. Their quick-hitting songs are filled to the brim with hooks and catchy choruses and they'll surely have the kids pogoing to the organ-driven howlers. Enthusiastic, fuzzy, indie-leaning garage rockers ABSOLUTELY NOT kick off all of the fun tonight. Time Out Chicago has praised them for generating “infectious one-two beat punk chords. It's an Iggy Pop meets Kevin Barnes approach to jagged garage-rock." Playing fast and loose with garage rock snottiness on their EP Meet the Sueves, out last summer via Dowager Records, THE SUEVES open tonight’s free with RSVP (shit)show.
