Slutter as KISS

Slutter as KISS
SLUTTER is the finest all-female KISS revue in the country. Featuring four of Chicago's hottest and most talented creatures of the night, this quartet of hard luck women has the magic touch to resurrect the energy of the original KISS shows 100,000 years ago. Clad in traditional KISS make up, leather, vinyl, studs, and spacesuits, SLUTTER features the hissing, purring, shedding Peterless Criss, the sexually ambiguous, always inappropriate starchild GG Stanley, the gluttonous, self-aggrandizing goddess of thunder Vagene Simmons, and the firey, radioactive Lace SHEley.


AM Taxi as The Cars
AM Taxi as The Cars
With a blend of old-school punk, world beat and modern pop influences, Chicago-based AM Taxi combines experience with exuberance on their Virgin Records debut, We Don’t Stand A Chance. The band was formed almost two years ago—with the encouragement of Sublime producer Miguel Happoldt—by longtime Windy City bandmates and pals, singer/songwriter Adam Krier, drummer Chris Smith and bassist Jason Schultejann. The trio began writing and recording and produced their first EP, Runaway Songs. Shortly after, they were joined by brothers John and Luke Schmitt on guitar and keyboards. AM Taxi began establishing a rep as a dynamic live outfit with headlining performances at local clubs like the Metro and soon after recorded their second EP, The Good, The Bad and The Fed Up. .

There are also songs about things everyone can identify with, like a couple in which no matter how much he messes up, she takes him back (“Charissa”) or New Year’s resolutions gone bad (“Champagne Toast”).

“I try to write songs about things people can relate to,” nods Adam. “For me, the best music, at the end of the day, is therapeutic. That’s always in the back of my mind a little when I’m sitting down to write.”

Big Paraid and Brighton MA as Queens of The Stone Age
Big Paraid and Brighton MA as Queens of The Stone Age
BIG PARAID, the aggressive crush pop trio out of Chicago, released their debut record in March of 2013. Since then, they have marched on through the House Of Blues, Metro, the Taste Of Lincoln Ave, and Lincoln Hall. They have also made handsome appearances on the Mancow Morning TV Show, Chicago's own JBTV, and the trio has told the exciting truth to radio DJs on WXRT, WBEZ, and WLUL.

The BIG PARAID live experience, which encompasses bombastic original rock songs, choreographed dancers, and a confetti cannon, is not one to be missed.

Brighton MA is a five-piece rock band from Chicago. Named for lead singer/songwriter Matt Kerstein's hometown, Brighton MA has existed in various forms since 2006. In the past year, founding members Kerstein, Sam Koentopp, and Jim Tuerk have been joined by Joe Darnaby and Jon Ozaksut to develop their most cohesive sound to date. BMA has built a reputation throughout the Midwest on a series of blistering live performances and a catalog of undeniably tuneful and well-crafted songs, heard on such prime-time television shows such as Gossip Gir, One Tree Hill and Castle. The diversity of songs has led them to share the stage with a number of noteworthy and disparate sounding performers, from Old 97s, Elvis Perkins, and Mason Jennings, to Man Man, The Essex Green, and Appleseed Cast to name a few. With an ever-expanding catalog and a quickly building fanbase, Brighton MA are a band on the rise and poised to break through.

BMA is currently working on their as of yet untitled third LP, a followup to Amateur Lovers [2008] and the self-titled debut EP [2007].
