whether/weather / Muggsy / Doublespeak / Slow Thrills

@ Burlington Bar

Friday, January 11 ~~ 8PM


whether/weather is an electro-pop band from Chicago, IL. We write tunes with lush layered vocals, alluring harmonies, and head bobbing beats.


Muggsy is a conglomerate of blues-rock with 90’s alternative influence. The trio consists of Tom Wierzbinski (guitar, vocals) and Jeremy Bear (drums) who have been playing together since their high school days in Bear’s parent’s basement. After years of playing together Wierzbinski and Bear put on the search for some low-end and found the individual with the best bass player name in the Chicagoland area, Manny Jones (bass). The three have been recording and bringing their raw rock sound to West Chicago since 2013.


We are DoubleSpeak. Our paths brought us to Chicago and it is here that we make amazing music.


Slow Thrills are most comfortable playing reverb-filled rock and roll with transistor organs. They can be found wandering somewhere between dark surf rock and psychedelic gypsy music.
