Three psych-punk buckos from Chicago playing swamp rock for our yearning muddy hearts. ENGINE SUMMER originally came about with guitarist/vocalist Jeremy Marsan and ex-drummer Phil Courtright. A few transplants and a new head later, this groovegaze trio is now complete with Ben Kostecki on bass/vocals, Ryan Ohm on drums/vocals and Jeremy keepin’ it real. Their most recent release, Trophy Kids, came out on Halloween last year and they just spanked us into oblivion when they opened for Brooklyn's BODEGA in June. It's a always a got damn pleasure to fall down the rabbit hole with this boisterous trio.
GIRL K is the work of the ever-so-sweet DIY supreme Kathy Patino. Just this year, she self-released, Sunflower Court, her debut album with great acclaim and is currently in the works of releasing her second. Using a unique blend of somber yet inviting/warm undertones, KATHY creates an uplifting and delightful atmosphere that playfully balances the painfully honest heartbroken lyrics. Performing tonight with a full band, GIRL K is ready to send you off swooning and crooning.
Glo-fi power-slop band TINCHO makes a stop in Chicago this summer. Not ready to let us dig into the whole platter, we just get a taste with a solo performance.
