WATER HOUSE is a self-described “Miasma Rock” quartet from Chicago, IL that has declared themselves insane and not to be trusted. We couldn't agree more. Using bits and pieces of the endless influences they share, or not, they create songs motivated by moods, emotions and ideas, rather than a specific style, and their caveman-like manic behavior makes them all the more compelling. YEESH is a trio of Chicagoans who refer to themselves as "loud dudes trying to craft intellectually and emotionally compelling music." It's a tall order, sure, but this band is no stranger to the scene, having played venues across the city and beyond. Now they're bringing their brand of abrasive indie rock to Bottle for their very first time, and we're damn stoked to hear these self-described music nerds rock the eff out. Dynamic and experimental lo-fi pop is hard to come by, so we're pleased to have New York's LVL UP filling that void. Fans of GUIDED BY VOICES and SUPERCHUNK will be in for a treat with these guys. Opening the night is SMALL WONDER, the project of New Yorker HENRY CRAWFORD, who's most recent record is a break-up/"everything is fucked" gem. In his own words, " This album was born out of worry and depression and sadness and all that good stuff, but it was also born to try to remind myself that things are good too, that there are lights in the sky, and that you have to get up in the morning if you want to see the sun." All three acts are sure to wet your Wednesday night whistle, and did we mention it's only seven bucks to get in? We didn't, so now you know. See you here.
