Our featured artist and guest for this episode of the Rock in Chicago Show is Pamela Maurer. Pamela is a musician, multimedia artist and designer who writes and performs with her group Baby Money and The Down Payments. Pamela spent the last year working on and releasing “HLDAY MAGIK” a visual album produced remotely with a team of people spread out across the country. Pamela is also the Guest List curator for this month.
Our Guest List curator for April is drummer and educator Chris Avgerin. Chris is well-known across multiple genres in Chicago’s music scene and has an impressive resume of projects and bands including Nequient, Varaha, Hedgehog and The Fox along with being respected as a session and live drummer. We asked Chris to curate a 90 minute playlist of music featuring bands from Chicago that he really dug and also interviewed him to get his background and perspective being a professional musician getting through a year of the pandemic.
Hardcore punk music in general is cathartic for me. I eat it and breathe it daily. All of the bands I’ve played in have been fast hardcore punk bands, it’s really a style that identifies with me. With my photography, I’m all about capturing the raw emotion. Especially with Artists that move around and come off more intense, abrasive, or scary. It feels like a chain reaction with the audience. The whole room is engaged. That’s my favorite. I love being in the front and actually being a part of the show.
