@ The Empty Bottle

Saturday, March 2 ~~ 8:30PM

$5 // 21+

Returning to our stage for the first time in almost a year are our old friends ABSOLUTELY NOT, who are always a god damn pleasure. Even more of a pleasure is when they release a new record and we celebrate it here, which is exactly what's happening here tonight! AbNot plays it fast and makes it fun, without ever taking themselves too seriously. Prepare to get wet & wild with em tonight.

PAPER MICE is a three-piece whirligig from Chicago. These DIY scene super stars blend a freakish range of influences into miniature, prog-punk puzzles that are extra fun to put together. They've played here countless times over the past decade-plus, including a full Halloween cover set of Television's '77 classic Marquee Moon a few years ago, and never miss a beat.

Sludge, noise and metal. NO MEN does not play around when it comes to re-adjusting your hearing loss. This doom power trio from Austin, TX has burrowed into the cold depths of Chicago’s rock scene to help stir up the pot. The trio has the most commanding force of dark vocals this side of the river and they'll surely get you riled up for this gloom packed night of rockdom.
