Ball Drop: 2 piece electronic doom gaze from Logan Square. Cult following.
Starting in Humboldt Park in late 2008, King Tuts Tomb has played at many bars, basements and DIY spaces. Their music is a surging genre blend with elements of Post-Punk, Shoe-gaze, Hardcore, and Electronica. With recordings in the Low-fi "home recording" spirit of R. Stevie Moore, their material defy's all conventions of professional musical output. After two self released albums and one tape put out by Teen River, King Tuts Tomb has only just begun it's rock'n roll crusade.
Marcel Marcel are very serious artists. They met on the internet after throwing off the yoke of their domineering father - a wizened oil man. He taught them winners never shiver. Their music sounds like My Bloody Valentine covering the Soft Boys, or that episode of Small Wonder when Vicki gets hooked on smack. Their music sounds like being paranoid on the bus.They live in Chicago. Their lives are in shambles.
