Music like the dead of night and dirt under your fingernails-Jessica Marks transports the listener to the romantic mysticism of her inner world. Haunting and transcendent, Marks' nuanced compositions and hypnotic vocals defy genre, existing only in the liminal space of dreams

"Ever since local singer-songwriter Jessica Marks dropped her debut EP, Forget Me...Gossip Wolf has been in thrall-her fragile, ghostly melodies and hypnotic vocals are pretty unforgettable..." - J.R. Nelson, Chicago Reader

Multi-Instrumentalist, psychedelic enthusiast and self proclaimed cult classic, Jude Shuma is a proud native of Chicago IL. Raised on the city's outskirts, Jude has been on a one-way street since birth. His voice and personality blend seamlessly with washed out melodies and songs that invite the audience to bask in a certain warmth, like a late Summer's day.

Glad Rags is a psychedelic orchestral ensemble from Chicago. They perform live with eight to twelve people playing a combination of synths, drums, bass, cello, viola, violin, tuba, saxophone, trombone, auxiliary percussion, tabla, vocal harmonies, and banjo.
