GIRL GROUP CHICAGO returns to the Bottle for their first show on our stage since hosting The (Best) Prom You Never Had last May with BOBBY CONN. Featuring damn near twenty members from the local music and arts community, from riot grrrl lovers to girl group record collectors to members of punk rock and metal bands, GIRL GROUP CHICAGO has had a buzz surrounding them since they first came into the city’s consciousness last spring. The first true “girl group” of its kind, the band features an all-star lineup with serious chops that magically recreates the aesthetic of the 1960s with their charming harmonies, their “wall of sound” aesthetic, feminine mystique and, of course, their custom-made, A-lined, mod-cloth dresses. Speaking of unique groups with a whole lot of performers, EB-faves BLUE RIBBON GLEE CLUB are coming back to the Bottle to get this party started. The thirty-member group is a punk rock choir that transforms songs by the likes of FUGAZI, THE CLASH, THE BLACK LIPS, SLEATER KINNEY and THE PIXIES into a capella anthems, “with a reckless enthusiasm for which glee is really the only proper synonym,” according to The Chicago Tribune. Special guest DJs THE LADIES OF SOUL will be spinning the best soul and R&B records throughout the night, so show up early and get your drink on before you dance the night away.
