Panic Priest – 6:30p
Death, sex and doomed romance. Panic Priest is the project showcasing the songs of singer / songwriter / multi instrumentalist Jack Armondo (My Gold Mask). A combination of self produced home recording and in-studio polish, aided and abetted on record by friends and guest musicians. Weaving together dream-like guitars and synths, Panic Priest creates midnight melodies that won’t soon leave your memory once dawn breaks.
Gal Gun – 7:30p
Shooting for understated complexity topped off by instantly accessible melodies, Gal Gun stands out from the crowded Chicago garage-rock scene. Drawing heavy influences from 90’s behemoths like Weezer and Blur while balancing a softer sound influenced by Belle & Sebastian and The Shins, their sound is equal parts familiar and refreshing. The band’s music and lyrics hope to strike a chord between triumph and heartbreak. Songs like “Heartbleed” obscure their more depressing nature with a slick power pop sheen. Gal Gun hopes to emulate Mancunian bands of the 80’s in their ability to hide a world-weary pessimism amidst a full pop stride and have fun doing it.
