Starcrawler - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Starcrawler
Starcrawler are a Los Angeles rock & roll band formed one year ago when Arrow de Wilde first met Henri Cash on the high school yard in Echo Park. The rhythm section of Austin Smith and Tim Franco came soon after, found on the streets of Hollywood. They play rock & roll music heavy and loud and their incendiary performances resemble the children of the Cramps, the Yeah Yeahs Yeahs, and Alice Cooper.

"Ants," a song they recorded days after first playing together, was quickly discovered by London DJ Matt Wilkinson and debuted on Apple Beats One radio just as the band were playing their first few shows. The DJ loved it so much, he played it twice in a row. Soon after, it found its way to Sir Elton John, who spun it on his "Rocket Hour" radio program, as well as to Zane Lowe, who played it to further accolades. Much media interest both from the music and fashion worlds has quickly followed. "Ants" & the forthcoming "Used to Know" are from an early session recorded by Steven McDonald (Red Kross) and document the unhinged beginnings of the group taking their first steps into the public eye. They have only now found the time to take a breath and are recording their more fully realized debut LP at Pax Am studios in Hollywood with Ryan Adams producing, due out later this year.

As a group, Starcrawler embodies that strange archetypal mojo that one finds in certain gangs of young rockers, only once or twice a generation; all the while still kicking and screaming as they sprint toward finding something new and entirely of their own. The band consists of Arrow de Wilde on lead vocals, Henri Cash on guitar, Austin Smith on drums, and Tim Franco on bass.
Sundown Club - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Sundown Club
Sundown Club is making their debut in the Chicago music scene with a sultry blend of spaghetti western and contemporary rock'n'roll. The band's five members, led by Brandon Reed (guitar, vocals) formerly of the Holy Motors, Miles Malin (guitar, vocals), Nick Tuminello (drums) both from The Evening Attraction, Ryan Fields (guitar) and Colleen Fazio (bass) of Cavern Sounds. The music features an eclectic range of sounds, influenced by artists such as Lee Hazlewood and Scott Walker, with memorable riffs and deep, echoing vocals.

The band's debut single, “Sweet Rose,” was recorded analog straight to tape through the Trident TSM mixing board, previously used by Queen and the Rolling Stones at Treehouse Records. The single features a wide array of instrumentation including strings arranged by Macie Stewart (OHMME and Kids These Days), making for a cinematic sound.
