Genre-hopping local prog-rock minded BOBBY CONN returns to the Bottle with a brand new LP, Macaroni, released last month on Fire Records. Incorporating experimental performance art, noise music and rock & roll, Stereogum calls track “Underground Vktm,” a “viciously catchy nyah-nyah jam…a very characteristic bit of scene-mockery from the man.” In the words of Tiny Mix Tapes, “much like macaroni, Chicago music fixture BOBBY CONN is always there for you,” and we couldn’t be more pleased to welcome BOBBY and his backing band THE BURGLARS back to our stage tonight. Local mind-blowers CAVE return with their expansive, Krautrock-worshipping spaced-out trance-rock fraught with hypnotic synths, aggressive percussion and hard rocking guitar. On their mostly instrumental new LP for Drag City, Neverendless, the fella’s give new meaning to the phrase “extended jam,” on tracks driven by heavy riffs and drenched psychedelics. Playful stalwarts of the Brooklyn DIY scene STARRING open with tracks from their upcoming avant-rock experimental full-length on Northern Spy Records.
