The Tyme Machines
The Tyme Machines
The Tyme Machines are a Chicago based, pop-rock band that prides itself on writing and performing infectious, quirky rock originals. Their debut EP, Super Club Serenades features 5 songs depicting the lighter side of life in Wisconsin. Tunes such as "Bingo Time" and "I Fix Your Bubbler" were inspired by front man, Bryan Adamick's (or stage persona "Rod Stiffski") years living in Wisconsin and observing local slang and tradition. Joined by Burt Burberson, Conrad Baine and Chet "Ego" Bratski, the band is also known for sharing its versions of awkward 1980's and 90's covers that you probably never wanted to hear again. Think... "She Drives Me Crazy" by the Fine Young Cannibals! Don't miss them the next time they play at your local establishment!
My God, The Heat
My God, The Heat
A little slice of Midwestern punk rawk rock n' roll for the peoples.

OH, you need more? You want us to describe us to you with data, keywords, HTML and otherwise? Well, you see (and read), if Tom Waits, Buddy Holly, and The Buzzcocks all had sex, they would call this ill-gotten' love child: MY GOD, THE HEAT. Say it to yourself, start quiet, repeat, and get louder each time you yell our name. Say it, "MY GOD, THE HEAT." Say it louder, undress your lovers and think of us.

We think you too will fall madly in love with this cute little bastard.

MY GOD, THE HEAT is: Jake DeTulio Dickson, Pancake Johnson and Antonio LaQuondathon, and Ronald Correa Rawhoof The IIIrd. -

Rock and roll isn’t dead, it’s just been sleeping with Verona Red. Or more appropriately Verona Red is fucking rock and roll.

It’s hard to define the Chicago foursomes’ sound in any more detail than that. Their influences jump from folk to R&B to swing with as much ferocious energy as the band itself, tearing apart stages in an endless quest to perforate eardrums and rupture hymens.

Don’t let their blatant disregard for all things wholesome fool you; Verona Red’s love affair with rock and roll is far from shallow. They’ve collectively scraped, saved and sacrificed everything for the opportunity to give you orgasms. From writing music in the seediest of coke dens to funding an album through the generosity of fans, Verona Red has proven themselves tireless, unwavering and completely insane, which is exactly what you need.

With a storied history of pleasing fans, disappointing parents and impregnating everything, it’s no surprise that Consequence of Sound raves, “When it comes to bands kicking ass, only the truth comes out, and Verona Red is the best Chicago band you must hear, hands down.”
Souljunky released their debut extended player “Here and Now” in 2011 which has been described as “delightfully ethereal” and “twenty minutes of sweet musical escapism”. The "Here and Now" E.P. is truly a clear indicator of what this musical collective is capable of. Souljunky seamlessly takes elements from wildly different genres and much like a digital sampler, splices them together to find a striking harmonic balance. "Here and Now" begins with the addictive pop gem "Francine" and slowly winds it's way to the shoe-gazing ambience of "Naked" and ends strongly with a Northern Soul floor filler "You Are The Landfill".

Over the past year and a half the group has been busy writing new songs which are just now finding there way onto the group's full length debut titled "I found your dream". The group's sound continues to expand and seeming at once evolve in a more refined manner. The new songs on this album seem more politically and socially aware but they never come off preachy or offensive. All of the songs on "I found your dream" share a common theme in which they question the status quo and the trappings which come with living up to others expectations. They are expecting to release this record by July of 2012.

Formed in 2011, this Chicago-based four piece consists of Chris Hess (vocals/ guitars/ keyboards), John Mott (vocals/ guitars), John Vanderweit (bass guitars) and Grant Niebergall (drums). These gents have known each other for over sixteen years nows and you can hear this in their music. The contributions of these musicians individually aren’t necessarily as important as what they are doing together as a whole right now. Souljunky's sole intention is to write and perform the most honest, heartfelt and creative music they possibly can.

People are quick to make judgements with association these days because they lack a certain descriptive vocabulary and we hear it all the time. So when the group is asked to describe their sound, you will most likely receive the same answer, Souljunky. The group certainly has developed their own distinct sound which remains a strong source of pride for the group. However, upon closer inspection one can easily hear many influences such as: electro, punk, soul, shoe-gazing, rock, afro-beat and many other genres melding seamlessly together.

Both separately and collectively, the members of this group have either played with or alongside numerous noteworthy artists such as: Jay Bennett of Wilco, Nash Kato of Urge Overkill, Sammy Llanas of The Bodeans, Via Verso, Faith No More, Scott Lucas of Local H, The Motherhips, DJ Greyboy, Petibone and many others.

Souljunky has recently played Double Door and Goose Island along with some other non-traditional venues for charitable fundraisers. They group's music has also been played on Chicago's 93.1 FM WXRT as well as Hammond's 1230 AM WJOB where they were a featured artist on Flying Around The Sun.
