Netherfriends Announces Schubas Residency

This is not a live album. This is an experiment in residency.  Our friend Netherfriends returns to Chicago for the month of November to perform every Monday at Schubas. Each week, Shawn Rosenblatt, sole writer and performer of Netherfriends, will prepare 4 new songs to track and record (along with re-arranged classics) with plans to release the collection as a new album.  During each performance, Shawn will have the audience contribute sounds he can then sample to help compose the songs (how cool is that? Show up to Schubas one of these nights and you’ll be included in an album).

Pre-Order Tickets here:

New Cassettes Return to Chicago – October 12th @ Empty Bottle

Empty Bottle
10:00 PM
1035 N. Western Ave.
Chicago, IL.

Our favorite band from Northampton is back in Chicago, opening for White Arrows and Family of the Year this Friday, October 12th, at the Empty Bottle. We had a chance to cover the band back in March and they were great. Frontman Tom Stubbs never stops dancing, moving all over the stage getting down to the bands infectious melodies. If you make it out to the Empty Bottle to catch these guys, you won’t be disappointed. Especially since tickets are only $8!

You can purchase tickets for the show here.

Video of the Week: Sleeper Agent “That’s My Baby”

Sleeper Agent premiered their new video for “That’s My Baby” yesterday and it’s awesome. The video features the band’s Alex Kandel and Tony Smith performing the song at a karaoke bar with almost too real backdrops. Directed by singer/guitarist Tony Smith, the video’s inspiration “came from a lack of sleep and too much time away from home” said Smith. “I wanted it to be dreamlike; something that’s relatively normal but seems ‘off’.”

Check it out below.
