    The Saps

    Power Pop

    The Saps are a hard-hitting, legendary Rock n Roll band that have played and toured for fans all around the country.  During their first three releases 1..2..3.. Drink, Finally A band you can Trust and Undesirable (known to old school Saps fans from back in the ‘days of debauchery’) The Saps music and scene have been spreading one town at a time for almost 20 years.

    2006 saw the release of the Saps multi-single record C’mon Already Start a Fire.   They were instantly recognized as more than a drunk party band that drew crowds of like-minded college kids.   Hits from C’mon Already have been used for movies, TV shows and games as well as climbing on the college radio charts!

    The Saps are The Saps, four musicians writing and performing top notch Pop songs while totally boozed up and inebriated in studio and on stage.   With their “play from the floor drunk” mentality, The Saps have always played their shows the way they wanted to. Whether starting a shot glass breaking frenzy in Bloomington, IL or pulling down the clubs ceiling in Knoxville, TN, The Saps have lived on to create another album:

    Easier On The Heart, Tough On The Lip (2017)

    Please join us in the celebration of another alcohol fueled, Saps extravaganza.

    This record is for you guys as much as its for us. Enjoy!!

  • Warm Ones

    Warm Ones

    Power Pop

    Warm Ones is the brevity that speaks in perfect harmony. Equal parts after-school special and soft porn, the Chicago four-piece specializes in aggressively catchy indie rock songs that range from bubble gum pop, found on such tracks as “Small Spies" and “Love For A Week" - to noisy garage riffs like “Bacteriostatic". The band is as experimental as it is grounded in simplicity and the result has been strong songs, dynamic recordings and memorable melodies.

    Tony Sackett (vocals/guitar) teaches high school history and art and could eat miso soup every day. He loves the soundtrack to the movie Xanadu and plays video games in a way his parents might have wished he would one day perform surgery - with precision, elegance and a personal touch. He started Warm Ones with Brett Whitacre as a recording project when they were both members of The Saps (Spin Magazine).

    Mike Metz (bass) is the audio director for a video game company, although he refuses to level up. He joined the line up last fall when he won the band's Blintz on a Bass contest where he successfully balanced 7 cheese blintzes on the neck of his guitar for a half hour. This worked a lot better than posting an ad on craigslist. Mike has resided in Chicago for the last 10 years and still has not met a tamale guy he didn't like. He will occasionally rock a neckbeard that would make Kyle Orton proud.

    Mike Wszolek (guitar) Guitar? Check. Beard? Check. Blaze? We think he's got it. In addition, Mike enjoys wasting time on facebook at work and cooking food spicy enough to make you choke on your own snot. Mike has an identical twin that we have not met, although once Mike's Facebook status had him "checking in" at an Old Town bar in the middle of our set at the Empty Bottle. His brother filled in admirably, and the matter was never discussed.

    Jon Adler (drums) is a design and animation guru who loves all things vintage and nostalgic. He also enjoys 5 pocket corduroy pants and hopes to one day be the proud owner of an actual Eero Aarnio pod chair. He once played a drum fill that lasted 32 bars and it was totally appropriate for the song. Since becoming a father, the band has taken to calling him "Dadler".  

  • The Bama Lamas

    The Bama Lamas

    Boogie Rock

    Down & dirty hip-shakin old school Rock & Roll / R&B. Good and greasy the way it was meant to be played. Like, if Little Richard played guitar and someone rubbed Tabasco on his genitals. Awooo!
