Detroit's BILL BONDSMEN headline tonight's punk explosion, bringing their dirty, angry hardcore to our stage for their first time and you can bet we're damn excited to welcome the anarchy that will ensue. Blending a molotov cocktail of buzzsaw guitars, punishing rhythms and larynx-shredding vocals, they thrash and wail with such ferocity that could only come from the most desperate of times. A vicious, old-school attack on hard economic times and the effects they have on a hell of a lot of people, BILL BONDSMEN's rage is an all-too-fitting rallying cry that may not make you feel a whole lot better, but will certainly provide some damn good therapy, at the very least. We’ve seen TERRIBLE TWOS tear apart an overflowing room of rabid dancers, and in the words of Victim of Time, the fellas consistently “create a frenetic agitated ball of organ-fried ferocity that always seems to be spinning out of control, yet brings it all back home with ballsy audacity.” The Detroit five-piece bring their synth-punk shenanigans back to our stage for the first time since opening last year's NYE Show with THE MARKED MEN and, as many can attest, they're perfect for any all that want to party at Satan's Circus. All the way from Pilsen, DAYLIGHT ROBBERY returns playing dark, intense and insanely catchy indie-leaning punk rock with shouty male-female vocals and serious muscle. The members of the trio have played with some of the best local and touring punk bands aroundand just this year released a new EP, Distant Shores, via Dirt Cult Records. POPULATION, an outfit comprised of members of some of Chicago’s most inventive punk rock, garage and new wave psych bands, come together with their combination the robotic rhythms and deathly vocal delivery of NEW ORDER with the overpowering sonic structures of early shoegaze and noise.
