Troy Anderson
We had the immense pleasure of hosting TROY ANDERSON twice this past year as he opened for THE YAWPERS and freaking MIKE KROL to a packed house. We’re honored to welcome him back for the debut of his new album, Cool Pop, New Soda. A rock 'n' roll five-piece named after their primary songwriter and hailing from - you guessed it -- lovely Chicago, IL, that’ll have you drooling and fooling for more after every pop-soaked down stroke.

ROOKIE - Chicago
New band ROOKIE returns after opening a packed show for their homies in THE NUDE PARTY back in September. Debuted on our stage nearly a year ago, the self-described “classic rock” quintet is helmed by JOE BORDENARO on drums/vocals and MAX LOEBMAN of YOKO AND THE OH Nos on guitar.


Shooting for understated complexity topped off by instantly accessible melodies, GAL GUN stands out from the crowded Chicago garage-rock scene. Drawing heavy influences from 90's behemoths like Weezer and Blur while balancing a softer sound influenced by Belle & Sebastian and The Shins, their sound is equal parts familiar and refreshing.
