Shelley Miller and the BCC make music to rip the curtains between darkness and light. Hard, delicate, sinewy, soulful music, music driven as much by Miller's skin-of-your-teeth storytelling as by the band's carefully-crafted guitar lines and shake-your-teeth noise. Think Radiohead by way of Neko Case by way of Thurston Moore by way of Wilco by way of rusty bicycles and midnight thunderstorms and beer and sobriety and too much coffee and not enough sleep. Since forming mid-2012, they've played Double Door, Hideout, City Winery and an abandoned mental hospital. They like cats. Their debut EP comes out early 2014.
»radiant devices« have a unique sound combining elements of post-punk, pop, and experimental rock. They are known for unique instrumentation including metal percussion (gas tanks, metal springs and sheets, a satellite dish, etc.), which lends to an engaging and energetic stage show. The band has been together for little over two years, playing (in the past) under a different name - The Mojdeh Project. They've had a chance to open for artists like Saul Williams, Chevelle, Shirley King and Malik Yusef, and played at venues like Museum of Contemporary Art, The Green Mill, Kinetic Playground, Beat Kitchen, UIC and others.
North of South is a trio with a common goal- to spread their voice through music. The three have been sharing music with each other as long as they have known each other, and all find fascination in the subtleties of communication that can be found in their sound. Through rich vocal harmonies, intoxicating melodies, all to a solid beat, North of South’s goal is simply to get what’s inside, out.
