Duller Colors
Duller Colors
Duller Colors is a folk rock group from the Western suburbs whose strong lyrical composition and thoughtful, effective chordal expression resonate with energy and honesty. Rooted in acoustic music, the band has forayed into an electric arrangement which better suits larger venues and a wider variety of musical tastes.
The Fuckers
The Fuckers
It all started one fateful night at a party. The Marks were fucked up, as usual, and talking about their shared love of awful noise (aka punk music). It was inevitable; The Fuckers were born.
The Marks found two other Fuckers, Lewie and Phil. Over the summer of 2010, The Fuckers started cranking out songs, each one shittier than the last. Gallons of booze later, The Fuckers made some live recordings of their sloppy brand of punk.
It didn't stop there. Songs kept spewing out, until the first Fuckers full length album was born. 12 songs, less than 30 minutes, entitled FUCK YOU! Since then, The Fuckers have played with the likes of The Dwarves, The World/Inferno Friendship Society and Social Distortion.
These days, The Fuckers continue to crank out songs and seek out anywhere they can destroy people's hearing and peace of mind. Their live show is a mix of drunken ramblings and high energy songs from across the punk genre, all guaranteed to entertain.
They are The Fuckers, and they're gonna fuck shit up!
About Nothin'
About Nothin'
Formed in 2004 for all the wrong reasons and best intentions, About Nothin' is back and ready to rock after a tumultuous reformulation. Having lost its first drummer to spontaneous combustion and the second to a witness relocation program, Greg "The Caucasian" Bridges signed on as drummer for Chicago's premier quirky-alt-prog-hard-grunge-rock-power-trio only after a vigorous search of Craig's List local music stores and marijuana dens. After an arduous auditioning process, Greg was pushed to the brink of "crazy" when he agreed to follow in the footsteps of his predecessors and anchor Chicago's premier quirky-alt-prog-hard-grunge-rock-power-trio, About Nothin'.

About Nothin' is:
Jay Montana — Guitars
Greg "The Caucasian" Bridges — Drums
Nick Thiakos — Bass / Vocals
The Black Box Revelation
The Black Box Revelation
"Scuzzy guitars, crashing drums, unabashed energy and depth of soul."

That's how U.K.'s Rock Sound describes Black Box Revelation. Brussels, Belgium may not be known for producing great rock and roll bands, but don't tell that to 22-year-old Jan Paternoster nor his 20-year-old sidekick Dries Van Dijck,who have been playing together for a decade, already releasing two albums, 2007's Set Your Head on Fire and 2010's Silver Threats (recorded in London's legendary Konk Studios) that established the duo as a serious force to be reckoned with. A cross between R&B-inflected garage-band rock that takes its cues from mid-'60s Stones and The Kinks to the most gut-bucket, electric delta blues evocative of Led Zeppelin by way of The White Stripes, The Black Keys and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Black Box Revelation is just that... a musical revelation that can't be boxed into a single category.

Coming to America to record their stateside debut, My Perception, with producer Alain Johannes [Queens of the Stone Age, Chris Cornell, Them Crooked Vultures] in his L.A. home studio, Jan and Dries felt right at home in the country where so much of the music that inspired them had been made. The result is their most accomplished album to date, with sound and noise now coalescing into real songs like the title track and "Rattle My Heart," which might have come straight from Out of Our Heads; the spooky acoustic strains of the Beatles-meets-Kinks British Invasion vibe of "Bitter," the pounding blues of "High On a Wire," the thick ambience of "2 Young Boys," the percussive beat of "Shadowman" and the psychedelic blues of "White Unicorns."

While building up a fan base in Europe by touring with Eagles of Death Metal as well as their own headlining shows in France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Holland and Scandanavia, the band has played scattered shows in the States, including two years at SXSW, as well as shows in L.A., New York, Boston, San Diego and San Francisco. Seeing them live, before a packed, sweaty audience of their crowd-surfing, head-banging fans, is yet another revelation...this one how two guys can create a sound that fills the room—and more.

With My Perception their first official U.S. album, Black Box Revelation will be making their assault on America very soon playing every garage, arena, and stadium!
Black Taxi
Black Taxi
BLACK TAXI is one of NYC's most prominent live acts, smashing an anything-goes punk ethos together with pop sensibilities, unparalleled energy, and brilliant songwriting. The result is a raucous stage show, heavy on harmonies, spitfire guitar licks, body paint, and all manner of instrumentation. Their style has been described varyingly as "grit-pop" or "dance punk", and though their songs hint at the Talking Heads, Cake, and Daft Punk, they are driven by something entirely new and infectious. BLACK TAXI songs can be heard on radio stations from Maine to California, accompany hit TV shows, provide the soundtrack for film, and hit the airwaves on commercial airlines. Their most recent music video "Shoeshine" has found a success of it's own as an Official Nominee for the Webby Awards.
