21 years and over
The DOOMTREE collective, a prolific pack of Minnesota musicians, make their Bottle debut here tonight and we’re looking forward to experiencing their underground legendary explosive live shows with blatant disregard for the conventions of any genre, on display most recently on No Kings. All seven members of DOOMTREE have built solo careers as rappers, producers or DJs, but when they take the stage together they’re an unstoppable storm. Borrowing from punk, classical, obscure rock and experimental musical forms, DOOMTREE manipulate contagious synth lines, layers of percussion and infectious melodies into a sound truly unlike any other. Chicago’s own NALEDGE, one half of the alternative hip-hop duo KIDZ IN THE HALL makes his first appearance at the Bottle tonight. Praised for an “impressively smooth and lyrical flow and delivery” by XXL, we’re excited to hear his new solo work. Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, FESS GRANDIOSE began as an MC at 17 and has added DJ and producer to his resume. On his Life in Lo-Fi…Vol 1, his ability as a lyricist and producer explodes from crappy computer speakers.
