Empty Bottle, Chicago, IL
21 years and over
The Empty Bottle welcomes back Detroit-based afrobeat group NOMO, an ensemble that features members of a widely disparate set of groups, coming together to create rousing 'post-afrobeat' jams that are noted for their hot horns and heavy percussion. On their Ubiquity Records release, Invisible Cities, NOMO experiment with different ideas and a bigger, more orchestral sound while bringing back the thunder and elaborating on the progress made on their last LP, Ghost Rock. We can’t wait to be bowled over by the sextet tonight. We’re also excited to welcome genre-bending trio THE ETERNALS. Playing new tracks off last year's Approaching the Energy Field, out via Addenda, the chameleonic band has shifted towards a more electronic-based sound that allows access to a seemingly infinite range of styles. LOW TIDE is a monthly dance featuring some of Chicago’s finest singers and players, including LeRoy Bach, Dave Hilliard and Matt Lux. All the music is up tempo, all on the fly, improvised and completely unique – this special Bottle performance tonight features the remarkable AVERY R YOUNG.
