Additional Information

“One-man pop band” WILD NOTHING is the project of young Virginian songwriter JACK TATUM and his band rolls into Chicago for this year’s Lollapalooza festival in Grant Park to support the release of their widely-acclaimed EP Empty Estate, out via Captured Tracks. Much like this previous work, TATUM blends woozy synths, accoustic strummin' and a syrupy baritone that'll make your knees go weak and is an essential listen for any lovers of dream-pop and chilled-out indie-rock. Consequence of Sound praised the effort, and its album artwork, saying it’s “dressed exactly how it sounds: a little more vibrant and a little more stoned.” Chicago/Milwaukee outfit CIRCLES return to the Bottle tonight and they've already picked up some solid press clips: The Detroit Daily Press calls the quartet “pop music for educated, upper-middle class, pretentious white people” (ha!) while The Pittsburgh Three River Times calls a CIRCLES live performance “akin to the long awaited sequel, Goonies II, with the treasure chest full of pills instead of gold.” Hey now! Featuring members of RADAR EYES, FOOTBALL and FRANCE HAS THE BOMB, they create a decidedly melodic garagey racket that tingles our dingles in all the right places. PINK FROST, the now year-old moniker for Chicago faves APTEKA, return to open tonight’s show. Their debut LP (as APTEKA), Gargoyle Days, made Best of 2011 lists at outlets from Time Out Chicago to the Dumbing of America and this past February saw the release of their very first 7” single. Awash in captivating reverb, swirling melodies and soaring, anthemic refrains, PINK FROST lives up to the Chicago Tribune praise of the band, calling them “an increasingly commanding quartet that embraces the power of guitar drone, tribal drum and the deep, shoegaze-era swoon.”
