V.V. Lightbody Tour Send-off

9pm, 21+, $10

V.V. Lightbody (Vivian McConnell from Chicago bands Santah / Grandkids) is playing music that is self-described as nap-rock. V.V. released her debut LP, 'Bathing Peach', in June of 2018. Her songs have cocktail lounge vibes; layered with flutes & lyrics about dried fruit. Think of glitching mermaids with dozing and comfortable songs. V.V. has been floating in the Chicago music world for ~5 years and has recently played with acts such as Michael Nau, Haley Heynderickx, Bedouine, Shannon Lay, Angelo De Augustine, Liz Cooper + the Stampede, Blank Range, Brokeback, and Ohmme.


June West's musical tastes are as wide and open as the Montana sky under which she was born, ranging from American soul, rock and roll, and country to Worldwide pop influences. West's debut full-length album explores these themes in relation to her second home, Tucson. The album expands upon her characteristic smooth and soulful soul, fusing Midwestern influences with desert imagery and the relaxed pace of the Southwest. With subtle guitar licks from desert-dwelling collaborators, strong but peaceful vocals and an eloquence often unheard from young musicians, West's album invites listeners to kick back, close their eyes and enjoy.
