Glitter Creeps is tearing 2017 UP! 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, which will double as a benefit for One Tail At A Time.
In the center of Chicago’s Rock and Roll renaissance sits DAN RICO (EGO, MAMA) who pairs glammy punk rock with vintage pop crooning to arrive at a sound that splits the difference between David Cassidy and Marc Bolan. RICO’s self-produced debut LP, Endless Love, veers between snappy punk tunes and laid-back love ballads, spurred by Rolling Stones-y guitar licks, Prince-influenced vocal harmonies, and minimalist electronic elements. Drawing from the impressive garage, soul, and underground aesthetic catalogue of his hometown Endless Love juxtaposes a striking mix of styles beneath a unifying umbrella of RICO’s Television-esque croon and unfettered pop structures. Sure to make your eyes wet and your heart sing, your fist pump and hips shake, Endless Love condenses the last 50 years of pop and punk music into a delicious, low-calorie, nostalgia-laden package.
COASTER is four rock dudes from Chicago taking it to the limit and beyond. Their digital album, Slow Jams, is the kind of old-school rock & roll that, you know, you want to make babies to. Please save the baby making for anywhere else but here, though.
Opening is TROY ANDERSON, a rock 'n' roll five-piece named after their primary songwriter and hailing from - you guessed it -- lovely Chicago, IL.
