Empty Bottle, Chicago, IL
21 years and over
After nearly 12 months in existence, Tall Pat Records has proven to be one of the most important record labels to emerge from the brain of Pat Sullivan in the last 20 years. In celebration of its meteoric rise to power in and around Chicago, the label is bringing its epic stable of bands to the Bottle for a night of endless Rock and Roll that will go until we legally have to close our doors at 2am.
THE DUMPSTER BABIES, hot of the release of their self-titled masterpiece, will once again grace the Bottle stage with their uncompromising brand of "Dumb Dumb Rock and Roll". Paul, Tom, John, and Kevin are bringing some new tunes to the stage and these surfin' power poppers love it when you chuck your EMPTY beer cans at them, so stay late and hurl away... Provided the band doesn't break up over the contentious feature in the Tribune before hand.
After gracing the stage along side such luminaries as MAN OR ASTRO-MAN? and TAV FALCO'S PANTHER BURNS, THE BINGERS and their well dressed brand of garage rock back to the place where it all started. From the moment they tune up you'll swear Marty McFly really did go back in time to the 1950s, only he brought back some BLACK FLAG LPs rather then that HUEY LEWIS AND THE SNOOZE single.
Not much is known about THE MAN, but rumor has it they're an off shoot of the political arm of the NATION OF ULYSSES, and that Sen Teddy Cruz (R-TX) has put a hit out the members of the band. These are dangerous times, and we need THE MAN more then ever before. Thanks to the effects of corporate synergy, THE MAN has agreed to once more grace the stage of the Empty Bottle with their focused grouped 'heavy and angular' punk rawk.
Rounding out the night are local ne'er do wells, FLESH PANTHERS. They've spent the better part of the fall on the run from MERLE ALLIN and the rest of the MURDER JUNKIES following a dispute back stage at Chic-A-Go-Go. Thankfully a few well timed bribes to Dr. Dino Sex has allowed the band to return to Chicago for a night of real old fashioned rock'n'roll that would make the folks down over at PUNK Magazine cheese their balls off.
Due to some legal troubles with the Burmese Government, The Wet and Half Rats will not be preforming. Thankfully Half Rat's impresario Tyler Brock and The Wet's drummer Jenn Robbins were not caught in the round up of alleged CIA agents and will be spinning of the finest tunes to ever not be on Tall Pat Records. It'll be a night to GO OFF, so get stoked. No Weak Pits.
