$15 (ADV), $20 // 21+DEERHOOFNOT FOR YOUSOLID FREEX----------DEERHOOF is John Dieterich, Satomi Matsuzaki, Ed Rodriguez and Greg Saunier. For over 20 years, the group has been an unparalleled force in modern music. Their fearless inventiveness has made them one of the most inspiring and important groups making music today. They played the Bottle three times in three years (2003-2005) before moving on to bigger stages around Chicago and the rest of the world. The only thing they see eye-to-eye on is the freedom to not see eye-to-eye.Seriously dominating their last appearance here for our #EB25 series, DEERHOOF has rumored that they bottled the energy from that electrifying night into two human-sized jugs and are planning to pop the lids off those cats this night! Honestly though that last show was insane and we can’t wait to experience that kind of musical enlightenment again. NOT FOR YOU is a curiously dark yet irresistibly magnetic take on guitar rock. Tonally, the songs are set against a pervasive murk— made of equal parts doom, shoegaze, and no wave. The Chicago project is comprised of Lindsey Sherman (vocals / guitar), Michael Dunne (bass), and Pasha Petrosyan (drums). Sherman’s blooming vocals float above the song like a dream that quickly torrents into nightmarish maelstroms at peak turbulence. The rhythm section is dynamic, shifting, and accomplished; propelling catchy melodies to crash against the heavy waves of an overwhelming wall of sound. NOT FOR YOU deconstructs pop music to the point of annihilation and then jolts it back to life in a strobing drama.A fiery cannonball of punk glory, SOLID FREEX are an all-American family band composed of two brothers on guitar and bass (one of which is still in high school) and their dad (of Castle Face Records band TRIN-TRAN) behind the kit. They’re creating tons of noise in their hometown of Madison, WI taking opening slots for Deerhoof, Oh Sees and Ty Freaking Segall. This fam is bound to blow-up so don’t miss your shot to capture this raw energy in pure form before it’s too late.
