Additional Information

Join us for the final day of The Do Division Street Fest - stretching on Division St. from Ashland to Leavitt and celebrating the culture, art and businesses that make Chicago so unique. The Empty Bottle is pleased to present a final day of live music chalk full of local and national talent on Division at Damen.  In 2009 THE ANTLERS released a little LP called Hospice that catapulted them from near-total obscurity to vast critical acclaim, sold-out shows and a worldwide tour.  Last spring they released Burst Apart, a potent mix of moody, soaring rocks songs that continues to defy what listeners expect from an unassuming trio.  In the words of STAIND, it’s been awhile since we’ve had the pleasure of hosting PINEBENDER at anything Empty Bottle related and we’re pleased as punch to welcome back the Chicago trio who’s gigantic, loud and slow songs earned them “if you do nothing else at DO DIVISION, hear PINEBENDER,” from the Chicago Tribune.    Filled with woozy gospel organs and broadly strummed acoustic guitars, Midwest-bred singer-songwriter CORY CHISEL and his crew of country roots-rockers THE WANDERING SONS follow the Pitchfork-praised TEENGIRL FANTASY, a duo of Oberlin College Students making dream music with a beat.  Lansing, MI’s dirgey, sparkling, scuzzy, scrappy and rollicking THE PEOPLE’S TEMPLE, a group HoZac praises for their ability to “burst through the thickening fog with anthemic precision and unshakable pleasure,” hit the stage after EIREN CAFFALL opens the afternoon with her quiet rocking sad songs.  Once again, WHAM CITY COMEDY funny dude PETER O’CONNELL MC’s throughout the day to close out this weekend’s festivities.
