St. Bagu's Sound
St. Bagu recently released their debut EP entitled "Lines." The EP is six original songs, revealing a marriage of sound between hip hop, arena rock, honkeytonk, jazz, and much more you'd be better off hearing than reading about.
St. Bagu Live
Live, St. Bagu delivers an energetic set fueled by the true belief in what their songs mean and stand for. These songs are songs of the soul. They are songs of celebration; songs of agony; songs of diligence; and songs about wonder. They are delivered with conviction, knowing that a song in its truest form is not a noun to toy with, but a verb that acts as a catalyst for true movement.
Old Black and Blue Eyes is a Chicago-based trio that harnesses elements of its members’ diverse musical backgrounds to deliver a powerful and unpredictable listening experience. They claim allegiance to no scene. Instead, they describe their sound as rock and roll infused with a small something harmoniously out of place — an aspect of their music that strikes a balance between consonance and dissonance that is both eerie and uplifting. Their approach to composition and performance is simply this: get the audience on its feet and keep it moving.
OBBE was formed in late 2006 as a Rat Pack cover band whose energy was largely spent drinking 30 packs of cheap beer and plowing through rock and pop punk arranDSC_0868gements of Frank Sinatra tunes. It has maintained the same line-up of musicians since its inception: guitarist and lead vocalist Jeff Dauksch, bassist and vocalist Brad Bischoff, and drummer Michael Mace. The band was created in the spirit of conviviality and designed as entertainment for the pub and party crowds. As time moved forward, however, the guys grew restless with the limitations that working within the structure someone else’s songs imposes, so they started over and built a catalog of their own music. (It should be noted that they still work a cover or two into their sets with the same unique flavor as the early days, but no longer limit themselves to the crooners; most recently, they’ve performed songs by The Temptations, George Michael, and Billy Joel.)
halloween 2006 023The band has played some of the best venues in Chicago (Double Door, Subterranean, Empty Bottle) as well as a number of the city’s more intimate locales (Elbo Room, Ultra Lounge, The Mutiny). They have performed at parties and festivals (Ravenswood Remix in 2011 and 2012) and have taken to touring in Southeastern Wisconsin and Downstate Illinois.
The band released its debut studio album, Beat the Clock in October 2014. This 11 song collection, which effectively represents the band’s evolution from booze-fueled pop punk pranksters to a cohort of focused musicians and serious songwriters, will be available in fall 2014.
The pick of the litter is a planet that's already been in the spotlight: HD 85512 b, a world at least 3.6 times as massive as Earth that's located 36 light-years away in the constellation Vela. HD 85512 b is the only one of the 16 super-Earths on today's list that is located in its star system's habitable zone. That's the area around a star where scientists believe water could exist in liquid form, which would make a rocky planet potentially livable.
HD 85512 b's status came to light a couple of weeks ago in a paper submitted to the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics, but the team behind the discovery provided more details about that super-Earth and the dozens of other worlds in papers presented today at the Extreme Solar Systems II conference in Wyoming.
The findings came from the team behind the High Accuracy Radial Velocity Planet Searcher, or HARPS, which is installed at the European Southern Observatory's 11.8-foot (3.6-meter) La Silla Observatory in Chile.
"The detection of HD 85512 b is far from the limit of HARPS, and demonstrates the possibility of discovering other super-Earths in the habitable zones around stars similar to the sun," University of Geneva astronomer Michel Mayor said in today's news release from the ESO.
Super-Earths, which range from Earth's mass to worlds 10 times more massive, are of particular interest to planet-hunters because it's thought that they could be even more conducive to the development of life than our own planet. When the search for extrasolar planets began more than 15 years ago, the telescopes used for the task could only detect giant planets like our own solar system's Jupiter.
