The Flesh Hungry Dog Show
On Friday, October 3rd, 2008 , The Flesh Hungry Dog Show present The Locals, Let's Get Out Of This Terrible Sandwich Shop and Kimi Hayes in a solo appearance. Hosted by Chicago rock impresario Gary Airedale, the show will also feature Bag of Fun prize giveaways from The Pleasure Chest, groovy movies, special guest performers from Girlie-Q Live Burlesque, and DJ Sky.
The Flesh Hungry Dog Show starts at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, October 3, 2008 at Jackhammer (773-743-5772), 6406 N. Clark St. in Chicago. Time Out Chicago magazine referred to The Flesh Hungry Dog Show as an uber-inclusive, alterna-queer, mini-rock extravaganza and possibly the most diverse scene in the city. Jackhammer is a 21+ venue. Tickets are $8 and are available at the door, or online at www.fleshhungrydog.com.
The Locals are a female fronted, melodic indie-rock three piece base in Chicago. Their latest CD, "Big Picture" (June 2008) delivers guitar heavy, sumptuous, alt-pop tunes. Produced, recorded and mixed by Steven Gillis (Filter), "Big Picture" is a collection of smart, engaging songs. And although most of the tracks are instantly accessible, Doll's lyrics give the erudite something to chew on.
Lets Get Out Of This Terrible Sandwich Shop
Local goof-pop combo Lets Get Out of This Terrible Sandwich Shop are finally garnering some attention for their music and not just their awesomely terrible/terribly awesome name. LGOOTTSS was the solo project of Los Shut Up drummer-songwriter Tony Mendoza until LSU bandmate Joanna Buese (bass, vocals, and kazoogle) and guitarist-vocalist Thea Lux joined up in 2005, followed by jack-of-all-trades Tom Vale the next year. (A forlorn-looking cat is credited as a fifth member.) The individual Sandwich Shops have long been involved with various comedy troupes, which definitely shows. Youre gonna meet / My fucken family / Here they come / Here they fucking come, Mendoza sings in My Fucken Family, off the bands full-length debut, Listening (Roydale). Other tunes, like the bouncy, Farfisa-driven Henry and the Horse (about Henry Fords equine travails), show off their singularly skewed hooks and shambling, unself-conscious eclecticism. J. Niimi
Kimi Hayes defines American music at its finest; full of pure rock and soul, blending the guts and passion of Joplin and Raitt, the pop sensibilities of Sheryl Crow and Matchbox Twenty, and the live unbridled energy of Etheridge and Springsteen. Chicago native Kimi Hayes, has four full length indie releases to date and performs over 150+ dates a year throughout the USA.
...Kimi Hayes reflects a lot of artistic maturity and depth. Theres an earnestness and confidence to her songs and vocals
