Record release show for Bev Rage & The Drinks brand new EP "Honk If Yer Hungry!"
Formed in early 2016, Bev Rage and the Drinks are unapologetically the queerest band in the land and they have six hands. Beverly (friends call her Bev) Rage is the driving force with songs covering a wide range of topics such as sex, snacks, and sex while snacking. Aaron Ehinger and Trevor Cole (the Drinks) bring the talent, the antics, and the legs. With a debut EP "Honk If Yer Hungry" dropping on August 18th, 2017 on Midwest Action, Bev Rage and the Drinks are ready to liven up any bar, basement, or ballroom with their homosexual agenda. We assure you this is a live show you won't soon forget, whether you want to or not!
Bash Bang is a power chord on a playground, an adrenaline rush fueled by a lollipop lick, a pop song through a blown-out speaker. Shannon Candy and Mike Martello sing about love, death, and other annoyances with guitars at full blast. Meanwhile, the drums of Ben Karas and bass of Gabe Michalski provide the rhythm to get your feet stomping like the floor is paved with the hearts of former lovers. In less flowery terms, they're a power-pop quartet from Chicago formed in 2017 and ready to say hello.
Absentee is the brand new album from ever-busy artist and musician Matty Ann. Her solo catalog continues to reflect her experiences and statements through clever lyrics, intricacies and subtle nods throughout. But while Absentee picks up where spring's Love Life EP leaves off, it also leaves behind much of the weight and replaces it with an urgency that Matty brings from playing in punk rock band A Blue Harbor. Her new approach to facing often times juxtaposing issues is met with the contrasting music to match. The sometimes quiet, sometimes loud recipe used heavily in 90s alternative is coupled with various indie, garage, and punk elements to complete a debut album that creates a statement about right now and leaves just enough curiosity about what's to come.
Doctor Death Crush are a 5-piece rock band from the sulfurous depths of HELL. They produce a highly unique and contemporary blend of glam, goth and grunge with a heavy and intricate sound. Most often, fans of Doctor Death Crush unmistakably unique vocal style, soaring, skull-melting guitar solos and powerfully cathartic live performances.
