21 years and over
Glitter Creeps just turned two and they're throwing a benefit for Planned Parenthood! This Rock/Punk/New Wave queer night has been throwing some of the best damn parties around since bringing their party to the Bottle. Hosted and co-curated by siblings Donnie & Madison Moore of ABSOLUTELY NOT, the monthly showcase was declared Best punk-rock LGBTQ night in Chicago Reader's 2015 Best Of issue and was included in Chicagoist's Best Queer Nightlife In Chicago. Each month brings new and exciting bands from Chicago and beyond to perform on our stage and we're stoked for the lineup that they've put together tonight.
HEAVY DREAMS, the latest loud-lyrical-pop project of Chicago musician EMILY KEMPF, has quickly become a favorite around these parts. This night marks her fourth Empty Bottle performance and her first time headlining. Returning to our stage for the first time since January '16 is five-headed punk rock monster known around town as RADIO SHAQ. They've got some catchy rock ditties for you to gobble up, so get ready to scrape the floor clean and find everything you need at RADIO SHAQ. Opening the vening is VACUUM, a Chicago garage rock trio making their Bottle debut.
Girls to the front! VACUUM, following in the footsteps of the Riot Grrrl bands that came before them, takes to the stage with a frustration that just can’t be pent up any longer. This all-girl punk outfit's angry, biting lyrics coupled with driving, fuzzy guitar licks will appeal to fans of Bikini Kill, Sleater-Kinney and Bratmobile.
