The Bad Lovers

Hotel Vegas is a venue that welcomes local bands with open arms. The Bad Lovers will help them kickoff their second anniversary weekend. The Bad Lovers’ surf-garage rock sound is the perfect soundtrack for a Halloween Friday.  Like their name suggests they have a simple yet occasionally sloppy rock and roll sound. Nothing earthshaking but who really likes that anyways. There is nothing bad about taking it nice and easy. Released last October, their LP, Wild Times, does just that. The 15-song album is laid-back rock and roll listen that would pair well with any party. Grab a drink and check them out at Hotel Hot Burrito’s two-year anniversary weekend kickoff show at Hotel Vegas this Friday, Oct. 31

GrandeMarshall Opening for Freddie Gibbs at Underground Arts Oct. 28

Yes - as the months flash by and the end of another year stands starkly in the distance, one can't help wonder: Will GrandeMarshall's official label album ever see the light of day? Hope continues to glimmer in my eyes and rattle in my ears with his latest video for "Burning Rubber Freestyle," another single off his long-awaited My Brother's Keeper, which still hasn't received a drop date from Fool's Gold. I guess that we'll just have to hear some of the tracks live tonight at Underground Arts, along with hopefully others from his brilliant 800 and Mugga Man mixtapes, when he opens for hard-livin', Gary, Indiana badass Freddie Gibbs. This one-two combination is a welcomed pummelling for hip-hop fans, and I'm guessing that the venue's backstage will surely be filled with a hazy cloud of blunt smoke so don't expect to get out of the basement at a reasonable hour for work the next day. I suggest that you already start coughing or mentioning that you're feelin' some sort of way if you haven't taken tomorrow off yet. That's my protip for ya; you can take it or leave it. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $18, 21+ - Alexis V.

Vortis

Vortis released their new album, Saftey First, this week. Vortis features a pretty famous drummer with the last name DeRogatis and blazing rock n' roll.

You can catch Vortis at Cairo Ale House in West Chicago on November 1st with 13 Monsters and several other bands.

Communion

Communion makes lo-fi gritty basement rock that will either leave you crying or cheering. They recently leased a collection of demos on their soundcloud that are raw and raucous.

You can catch Communion at The Mutiny Chicago on Nov. 8th with Blackout Manor and Flaccid Pickle.

Jake's CMJ 2014 Days 4: Sharpless, Attic Basement, Mitski, Small Wonder

My Friday night was spent primarily at The Silent Barn (pictured) for the Miscreant and Father/Daughter Records showcase. I'll add that I spent all of the next day there as well; having spent the most time there than any venue, Silent Barn had my favorite bills of CMJ by far, and none of them were official. Although I was particularly exhausted that day/night and ended up leaving earlier than I would've liked, I did catch some great acts that I had been meaning to see for a while. I will say that this was a stacked bill, I'm only going to talk about a few of the bands that really stand out to me. - Keep reading Jake Saunders report of Day 4 of the CMJ Music Marathon 2014.
