We play eclectic post-rock brought on by the extensive time travels of The Colonel himself. Our music uses the correct frequencies for him to regain control of his entry points. It’s a very hard life warping around the universe at random…

John Condron and the Old Gang Orchestra
The Old Gang Orchestra is a musical collective brought together initially to re-imagine the songs off John Condron’s 5th release “…If Any or at. All “. The band made it’s well received debut shortly thereafter & continued to perform & add new original music to the existing catalog, releasing the album Dead Tree in early 2018 & following that up with a special vinyl pressing later that year. The O.G.O. consists of several Chicago area music “staples”, banging various styles & influences into one unique & effective musical family. Anchored by John’s working-class songwriting sensibilities, the group consists of celebrated veteran players Tom Maslowski (upright bass/bass guitar) Doneco Nudi (drums & percussion) & Ellis Wright (saxophone). The “Old Gang” will head back into the studio in the coming months to capture the newest songs for a follow up release in 2022 & will continue to bring their energetic performances to festivals & venues both locally & wherever the road takes them!
Alex Hoffer Band
Alex has been a full-time musician in the Chicagoland area for seven years now and in that time he has been building a loyal following as well as a catalog of original music. Alex has played in the greater MidWest area and just about everywhere else you can imagine in this country. A fusion of Blues, Funk, Rock and Americana bordering on Prog Rock, the sound is unmistakable.
Progressive Folk meets Blue Collar Rock
The ever-eclectic music of X-Ray Mary will lead you down the rabbit hole of sonic bliss. Foot-tapping punk rock grooves inspired by science fiction themes and B-Movies are their forte. Zombies, Hollywood celebrities and diseases are not immune to the infectious beat of X-Ray Mary.
Foresight is six guys making music for the love of it! Their latest release DMLA is a concept album based off of being stuck in the car, and all the mental gymnastics that comes with it.
Foresight will be performing at Cobra Lounge on September 10.
Avantist are descendants of Mariachi.
Avantist is performing at Subterranean on September 5.
