RLYR - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
RLYR
Chicago-based experimental rock trio RLYR (pronounced “Relayer”) are proud to present their sophomore album Actual Existence, a four song full-length that distills and expands on the explosive energy and anthemic catharses of the band’s 2016 debut Delayer. Comprising Steven Hess (Locrian, Cleared), Colin DeKuiper (Bloodiest, ex-Russian Circles), and Trevor Shelley de Brauw (Pelican, Chord), RLYR’s indelible earworm melodies belie the intricacy and labryinthian structures of their songs. Actual Existence represents a step forward in complexity for the instrumental band, while preserving the exhilarating climaxes and frenetic intensity that are hallmarks of their live performances.
Fotocrime - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Fotocrime


FOTOCRIME is the new musical endeavor by R.Pattern (aka Ryan Patterson, formerly of Coliseum) and including Nick Thieneman (Young Widows). After over a decade as the singer-guitarist of post-hardcore trio Coliseum, Pattern forged ahead on his own with a new vision, sound, and moniker: Fotocrime. Backed by danceable, battle hymn drum machines and layered synths, Fotocrime brings a monochrome clarity to its electronic-meets-organic post-punk with driving bass, single-note guitar work, and Pattern’s unmistakable drawl. Forging a connection between the shadows of the underbelly of the mid-century American Dream, the ghostly corners of post-war Europe, and the present moment, Fotocrime breathes new life into Cold War paranoia, modern-day malaise and smoky noir.
The Holy Circle - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
The Holy Circle
The Holy Circle is Terence Hannum (Synths), Erica Burgner-Hannum (vocals) and Nathan Jurgenson (drums). Terence, who is known for playing in the black metal-influenced/drone group, Locrian, takes a completely different route with The Holy Circle pulling elements of R&B, synth-pop, and shoegaze to create something completely new.
