The Empty Bottle
$8 // 21+LEE BAINS III & THE GLORY FIRESNAVY GANGSFAKE LIMBS----------Alabama-based swamp rock band LEE BAINS III & THE GLORY FIRES return with a back pocket full of Southern swagger and gut-punching riffs sleazy enough to clog Rod Stewart’s stomach pump, as an incantation that only a Yellowhammer can truly understand is bellowed and then screamed. Hot off their latest record, Youth Detention, courtesy of Don Giovanni Records, this snarling gaggle of American scoundrels keep the riffage heavy but level up on the rhetoric, touching on political issues such as race, class and good ole’ justice. Feel the wrath.NAVY GANGS fearlessly left on a one-way bus trip from Omaha to base themselves in Brooklyn, New York to achieve ultimate rock glory. Their self-titled debut EP roars as a true testament of dedication, having been recorded in a makeshift studio of their own creation. NAVY GANGS fast-paced yet sometimes dreamy rock draws you in and holds you tight, especially with their expert vocal harmonies. This is band that is here to stay.Chicago’s FAKE LIMBS are now legitamized Empty Bottle veterans, having celebrated their record release here back in November, this will be their 12th appearance with us and we can’t get nearly enough of them. The dudely four-piece have released two of the best, noisiest punk records this city spewed out in the early-10s, 2013's The Power of Patrician Upbringing and 2012's Man Feelings, both on BLVD Records. Their newest LP, Matronly, comes to us via the unstoppable Don Giovanni Records. FAKE LIMBS throws listeners around the room with their in-your-face aural assault and The AV Club praises, "the band follows in the grand tradition of groups like The Jesus Lizard and Stnnng, with angular and jagged riffs fused to pounding rhythms and holler-’till-you’re-hoarse vocals."
