THE MUSIC

BREMER & THE NO GOODS

Matt Bremer, Vinny Keel, Jake Bone, Kurt Klein, and James Capone: Five Chicago gents who got together to produce straight up Rock 'N' Roll without any bullshit, but with plenty of booze. The music speaks for itself and is assured to leave pants down, hearts a pound and minds loud!

DAMN CHAMPION

Three homies that came together out of a love for dogs and rock n' roll, DAMN CHAMPION does playfully authentic midwestern post-hardcore that will shine innocence and retribution back into your soul. 

MINOR WITS

Forever friends and now band-mates, Minor Wits (out of Chicago, IL) is a three-piece pop/rock band that started writing tunes together in the fall of 2011. Eric, Nolan and Brad spent their first year as a group playing around Chicago and the mid-west, but recently spent time at Uptown Recording Chicago to lay-down what has become their debut, "Bedroom Blues."

PANTHATONE

Panthatone is Khutso Paynter and Steve Denning. A rock and roll two piece.
