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 Rape Victim Advocates.
GC's gone all out tonight with a headlining set by OOZING WOUND. The thrashing trio has celebrated the release of all three of their Thrill Jockey records right here with us and we've loved em every step of the way. The Wound makes the people go insane with their simultaneously hilarious and terrifying blend of heavy riffage, crushing rhythms and piercing screams. The two original OOZERs cut their teeth in some beloved local bands (CACAW, ZATH, UNMANNED SHIP) and their new drummer Casey has been known to tear his set to pieces in his hometown of Milwaukee. Word on the street is that this will be Casey's final show with the band, as he's going off to pursue a "real life" outside of oozin' 'round the globe. Wish him a fond farewell and let's all dive straight into intense, repetitive, disorienting, industrial-tinged thrash metal. Chicago three-piece RIBBONHEAD play loud and thrashy hardcore with reckless abandon and throat-shedding vocals. Their Solid Gold EP packs one helluva punch and if they bring the same intensity to their live show, it's sure to be a real bomb dropped on your silly ol' noggin. SALVATION is a local punk/garage rock band who make noise like their lives depended on it. Last time they were here it was to celebrate the release of their full-length LP Sore Loser via Forge Again Records, and we're stoked to witness their sonic assault once again.
