Hemmingbirds and Souljunky
Hemmingbirds is an indie pop rock band based out of Chicago, IL. The band began as a solo project of singer/guitarist/violist Yoo Soo Kim in the fall of 2009. The name is loosely inspired by Ernest Hemingway and a Fleet Foxes track that sings about hummingbirds and meadowlarks.
The recordings from Yoo Soo's solo project expanded into what would ultimately become the band's debut Death Wave released May 2010. Joined by members Zach Benkowski, Timothy Cap, and Matt McGuire, Hemmingbirds released its second LP "The Vines of Age" that draws more soul and dance into their folk-tinged sound.
    From the "The Vines of Age" release in 2012, the band has been featured in Alternative Press as an AP&R Band of the Day, charted #47 on CMJ's Top 200, and picked by Indie Rock Cafe as a band to watch. They've also received radio play on Chicago's NPR station, 93XRT, and opened for the emerging band Buke & Gase.

Also on the bill is Souljunky -- an alternative rock group of musicians who have wandered far and wide to find the place they are right now. Right now that place happens to be located in the heart of the Midwest and most folks know it as the fine City of Chicago. The group consists of locals John Mott, Chris Hess, John Vander Weit, Grant Niebergall and Eric Chase.

And opening the show is DeKalb's own Hijee. Hijee brings upbeat rock rhythm and keys to the crowd at Otto's and those who have seen them play say it's "like sitting on a hot nickel (with piano)".
