9:00am-12:00pm: General chaos
12:00-2:00 BLVD POWER HOUR(s) W/FAKE LIMBS + SAVAGE SISTER!!!!
We are kicking off the day with Melissa's BLVD RECORDS mini-showcase, featuring Chicago's powerhouse heavyweights FAKE LIMBS and Chicago's most excellent shoegazing, ambient dreampoppers SAVAGE SISTER. Both ends of the spectrum to open up the live band portion of our day, which lives up to the BLVD Records release ethic: "putting out everything that is great."
3:00 THE LEMONS
One of Chicago's finest young bands, we're stoked to have the LEMONS rock the RSD stage with their super-60s jangly starry garage/pop sound. Named one of "15 Chicago Artists to Watch in 2014" in the Redeye!
4:00 PHIL ANGOTTI & FRIENDS' "Sounds of Silence"
The incredible Phil Angotti (The Fleas, The Scuttle, Beatle Brothers, The Idea), longtime fixture in the power-pop world and all-around excellent local musician, will be executing Simon & Garfunkel's "Sounds of Silence" album (plus one bonus track!), with several friends TBA. You may remember Phil from being part of our RSD past performances, such as Edward Burch's "Elvis, Angotti, Dawson & Burch Ltd."
5:00 THE HANDCUFFS
Our very good friends THE HANDCUFFS finally bring their amazing garagey/glam/r'n'r stylings to Laurie's! Led by the lovely Chloe Orwell and local drummer-extraordinaire Brad Elvis-- you might know Brad Elvis as the drummer for The Romantics, and formerly for the Elvis Brothers & Screams, among others! He's ALSO been a past Laurie's RSD performer and we're so very excited to have his band here!
6:00 SILVER ABUSE
CHICAGO'S ORIGINAL NO-WAVER/PUNX SILVER ABUSE will bring their awesomely damaged, experimental skronk to Record Store Day! Potentially Chicago's very first "punk" band, featured in the legendary "You Weren't There" documentary, and featured on the legendary "Busted At Oz" live compilation (a hard-to-find gem of Chicago's early punk era)! We're honored to have 'em here!
Another one of our favorite newer local bands, MAZES
play dreamy, psychedelic pop music that's perfect for appreciators of Flying Nun and the like. Two members from the 1900s!
10:00pm- We close and all of us Laurie’s staff pass out.
...MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED!...
AND NO WE DON'T KNOW WHAT WE'RE GETTING AND WE CANNOT HOLD IT FOR YOU.
As always, we will be posting our full list of everything we will have on stock the day before RSD, which is Friday, April 18!
