Mungion
Chicago-based jam outfit Mungion has been turning heads since bursting onto the scene in the spring of last year. With excitement building from their exploratory live outings, Mungion’s steadily growing fan base received the band’s first full-length studio offering, Scary Blankets. The inspiration of their jam scene peers is evident throughout. “Schvingo” and “Hindsight,” built from catchy, strolling bass lines and prog-guitar wailing both deliver handily, displaying the influences of well-loved acts on the band, from Pat Metheny to Frank Zappa to Jimmy Herring and beyond.

When you see their live show it’s very evident that there’s a clear intention to create a set of music that is rich, varied and immersive — not just a collection of tunes, but a cohesive, complex sonic story that keeps people on their toes dancing. Mungion has just began to scratch the surface. They have a new album set for release in early 2017 and will be arriving in a city near you very soon.
Lunar Ticks
Lunar Ticks aim to barrel through stylistic boundaries,by recreating, and expanding on roots music (rock, folk, country, jazz, bluegrass, soul, funk, punk, etc.), with a DIY ethic and a jovial attitude. Featuring members of Chicago bands, The Casual Ties, Rusty Gates, Spread, Ooraloo, and Higgs Theory, this group labors to build an eclectic and vast catalog of originals and covers.

This is a collective that strives for experimentation in writing, recording, production, and performance. We like to get weird, have fun, and let the moment steer us any way it chooses. We are dedicated to crafting intricate compositions, exploring inventive techniques for improvisation, and creating live experiences that will incorporate unique collaborations, themed events, and crowd interaction.

We promise you this,

If you take a chance on us, we’ll take a chance for you.
