Kali Masi is a punk rock band from Chicago’s ever-ripening music scene. Kali Masi is clever and cathartic, offering melodies sculpted around angles and curves that will pull even the most jaded punks in from the back of the room. Their singles Jejune and Sputter showcase the bands aggressive and meditative roots while foreshadowing the sure-fire full-length Wind Instrument to be released in 2017.

Not a trio, but does have horns. They let Direct Hit's Devon Kay into the band but we're not going to fault them for it.
Dan K is the hip-hop pseudonym of Chicago musician Stephan Jurgovan. Equal parts autobiography and hyperbole, Dan K spits tall tales and bleak confessionals about getting fucked up, eating fast food, and being generally anti-authority. Dan K will rock the house, and then ruin the party by vomiting rum and chocolate cake all over the kitchen. He’s a talented MC packing death metal swag, 90s hip hop flow, and massive quantities of over the counter cough and cold pills. Jurgovan’s work as primary songwriter and vocalist in the punk band Nervous Passenger is obvious in the strongly melodic tracks served up by his alter ego. Produced by Dusty Patches, Dan K’s self-titled debut is an explosive combination of nihilistic party anthems and one of a kind beats.
Acceptor is four young men (Justin, Mike, Drew and Adam) on a perilous quest to make a single noise so loud and crunchy that it will kill the evil wizard who cursed them to walk around looking like this. They walk the thinnest line between pop and punk the whole time.
