Brooklyn quartet DINOSAUR FEATHERS returns to Chicago with their newest effort, Whistle Tips, a giant leap forward from their 09 tropical debut LP, Fantasy Memorial. The revamped version of DINOSAUR FEATHERS now features a real live drummer - offering an unexplored forcefulness and flexibility - and a switch from laid-back acoustic folk vibes to the addition of an electric guitar’s crunchy, noisy outbursts. The sunny melodies, infectious grooves and boisterous harmonies remain, and the WINGS-appreciation continues, but with a decidedly punkier attitude. Fellow Brooklyn-ites and tourmates SHARK? make a stop at the Bottle tonight in support of their recently released Truly Wasted EP. Fuzzy, lo-fi, garage-punk with a singer doing that little ol’ IAN CURTIS thing, these brooding boys find a way to cut through darkness with what OhMyRockness calls “optimistic garage with a bit of new wave weirdness (courtesy of a synth).” CHARMING PEOPLE open, featuring members of THE DECCAS, K.K. RAMPAGE AND JON DRAKE AND THE SHAKES. The quintet have a swinging throwback sound – sugary sweet pop with a hint of darkness behind the veil, a sound they call “PETULA CLARK and PHIL SPECTOR interpret THE DOORS.”
