THE JUST LUCKIES

THE JUST LUCKIES

This event is Upstairs at Bottom Lounge

The Just Luckies make rock and roll about their feelings. Baby Boomers would probs say they’re snowflakes and cupcakes, but that’s cool because they like both of those things. As a band they don’t necessarily fit into a set genre musically or as humans. Though they are a Chicago based band, their roots are scattered about the midwest down to the deep south diversifying their regional influences. As gang of bffles The Just Luckies like to smash the patriarchy, heteronormativity, transphobia, and white supremacy as best they know how; through face melting guitar solos and singing their lil hearts out. The Just Luckies want are all active protestors, donators, voters, don’t support immoral companies/will switch deodorant brands for the cause, and bring their own bags to the grocery store. The Just Luckies are the enemies to beauty standards, gender roles, capitalism, hate/fear based politics, and complacency. Using their abilities to rock they will play your ears the best genre-bending rock and roll like you’ve never known before. KC Weldon (lead vocals/guitar), Shea Briggs (drums/ukulele), Nat Greene (lead guitar/vocals), and Lucy Diavolo (bass/vocals).

Also Playing

HAWLEY

HAWLEY

Hawley is a three-piece, post-punk band making music in Chicago, IL.

LEVER

LEVER

Lever is a 4-piece alternative rock band hailing from Chicago, IL taking influences from artists such as Nirvana, Wavves, Silverchair and Speedy Ortiz. In May of 2015, the twenty-somethings released their debut album “Hover Bored” and ventured out on a West Coast tour starting off at The Vault in Madison, WI and ending at Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood, CA. They’ve played in offices, community colleges, at wrestling shows and even flea markets. Lever is making a name for themselves with their all out, energetic live performances, and their catchy grunge pop guitar riffs. “Just like our favorite 90’s rock groups, Lever possesses a knack for distortion-fuzzy tracks with a bad attitude. Each song harkens back sounds of Nirvana, Sex Pistols, and other bands that would fit perfectly in a grimy, small club venue.”

THE PEEKABOOS

THE PEEKABOOS

The Peekaboos are a four piece band from Chicago that play a unique brand of rock ‘n’ roll which incorporates musical stylings from punk, alternative, folk and metal. The Peekaboos have two full length releases, Stay Positive (2014; self-released) and Help Stop Decay (2016; Dark Circle Tapes and DZ Records). In the three months since its release, Help Stop Decay has sold over 300 tapes, USBs and digital downloads. The growing collection of videos developed in conjunction with Help Stop Decay includes music videos for two of the album’s singles–“Handibles/Mandibles” and “White Line Fever”–as well as six live concert recordings released by DZ Records. Help Stop Decay embodies the most significant refinement of the band’s skills, featuring erie, thought-provoking, socially-conscious lyrics set to massive swirling guitars and thrashing rhythms. The Peekaboos have created a unique revival of ‘vintage heavy metal’ music, designed for energizing intensity and jubilant hysteria in a live environment while still being accessible enough to play on the radio. Help Stop Decay has received regular rotation on Q101 WKQX local radio program Demo 312.

The Peekaboos have been a crucial part of the Chicago DIY scene since their conception in 2013. Members of the band operate local mainstay venue Auxiliary Art Center and are the masterminds behind two 30-band DIY festivals, Distractions/Distortions (April 2014/2015) and Sunshine Fest (April 2017). The Peekaboos have operated under the DIY ethos of producing their own records, manufacturing their own merch, building their own stage sets and booking their own tours. The Peekaboos are currently working on new material for follow-up albums and EP’s expected for release in 2017.
