In a scene where bands seem chained to their specific genre, Stardusk Encounter is a consistently shape-shifting entity, yet the unique mixture of styles isn't there as a hollow grab for every possible audience. This is a band of well-schooled multi-instrumentalists, writing and performing on their own terms with a canyon-wide palette of slinky, ominous sounds. Get into it! [Information provided by Bandcamp]

The Soft Candy legend begins in the fall 2010. alex(piano) met alex(guitar) through kritzer(guitar) and alex(guitar) knew roy(drums) and kritzer knew kyle(bass) and they all started playing together choosing a band name was hard and the earlier names were unspeakably profane so we spare you those early titles shoegaze jazz chords in 5/4 were cool and everything but something had to change and kritzer lost it so he bounced then adam showed up and made it art and that was cool then alex got tired of it and tried to break us up but then alex showed up and alex left but alex still played keys thus birthed chelsea boots and violet eyelids in a bloodbath of egos gone plural to at least hundreds of songwriters...[More of Soft Candy, please visit www.softcandytheband.com]

Microcosms makes music to question your beliefs to. The Chicago-based alternative rock band began as the brainbaby of Andrew Tschiltsch, who spent a few years recording solo demos and experimenting with his sound before enlisting Bryan Emer (bass) and Jered Pipenbrink (drums) to fill out the band. The band blends introspective lyrics with lush guitar riffs and pulsating rhythms. Microcosms is most influenced by modern rock artists like Arctic Monkeys, Cage the Elephant, Courtney Barnett, Bully, Wolf Alice, The Strokes, and Portugal. the Man. Their second EP, "Fairytale" will be released October 2018.

Cosmically inclined to give you what you've been looking for, perhaps a bit of yourself in this realm. Rockin' on with passion in every depth!
Stillness walking & running with the wind across all lands and skies, adapting to the chaotic, optimistic, eccentrically familiar and unfamiliar tones of music, Pure Remedy is a four-piece Chicago alternative rock band born in the summer of 2008. Four musically inclined self taught musicians & aura brothers from all parts of the city, acquiring strengths of the transformation of sound collages and all of their energy like acrobatic magicians. From their 2009 scrapped demo “Watered in the Cellar” singles such as “Of a Child”, “The Others”, to their officially much embraced first album “Remedio” in 2015 with chimes & profound transport songs such as “Teleport” & “Blackbutterfly”, Pure Remedy is currently finishing up their much anticipated sophomore 9 track album entitled “Whispers” out this fall of 2018. With the privilege to open up & perform along side an array of amazing local & national- international artists, this fall of 2018 will feature a cosmos of profound vibrations to the release along with new invited guest in the album & rhythmically- blissful live surprises. Always searching and interconnecting, Pure Remedy lives to be your tonic & mending potion.
