Chi, IL Live Shows on Our Radar #ChiILPicksList

Check back with ChiIL Live Shows like we vote in Chi, IL... early and often. We'll be featuring a few acts that caught our eye... and ears. And some must see band we'll drop everything for.

Adele Stein, Ciscandra Nostalghia, Roy Gnan

Here at ChiIL Live Shows, we haven't seen Nostalghia live, but I must say we're intrigued enough to check 'em out. Other options in the 6pm Sat time slot are Wu Tang Clan, Dashboard Confessional, The Crombies & The Get Up Kids

One of the most exciting new bands to come along in some time.  If you're a fan of artists like Kate Bush, Bjork, NIN, the Knife, Mirah or post-apocalyptic gypsy punk, this is a don't-miss band.  Early supporters include Skrillex, Marilyn Manson and Amy Lee of Evanscence.  If you like discovering something exciting, daring, off-the-wall and maybe a little ahead of the curve, then this is the band to check out. 

And yes. Yes we do dig post-apocalyptic gypsy punk, Siouxsie Sioux, NIN, Bjork and Kate Bush.

Nostalghia is comprised of vocalist/songwriter Ciscandra Nostalghia, keyboardist/ producer/drummer Roy Gnan, who met each other on Craig's List, and touring cellist Adele Stein.  With Gnan's BA in jazz performance and cache of instruments, computers and other electronic gear, combined with Ciscandra's artistic bravery that is the product of the collision of two entirely different worlds - Los Angeles and Tehran, Iran, they make provocative, uncompromising and cinematic music.  The band has been embraced by a wide variety of audiences, having shared the stage with artists including Jared Leto's 30 Seconds to Mars, Gogol Bordello, Green Day, The Orb, Serj Tankian, and Avenged Sevenfold. With Chrysalis, the band's debut album that was mixed by multi-Platinum producer/mixer Dave Fortman and released April 8 (110 Recordings/INgrooves), Nostalghia proves they are not your average alt/rock band.

**"...theatrical, poignant, unflinching and desperately meaningful.  Her name is Ciscandra Nostalghia and she's out of this f**king world." - 

" of the most original new artists on the music scene today,  A journey between light and dark, 'Chrysalis' has enough pop-like elements to push it forward, though with a noir and avant-garde artist with a vision and a unique style." - RockSubculture

"Euphoria meets rage on this chaotic, dramatic debut by Nostalghia.  FIVE STARS"  - Examiner

"Vocal splashes of Diamonda Galas, Kate Bush and Siouxsie Sioux, combined with the artistic freedom and sight of a Perry Farrell, Nostalghia are relevant, current and have their finger on the pulse of the future."  - PlaybackStL

Win Free Tickets to Primus This Friday-ChiIL Live Shows Has 4 Pairs!

Spend your Friday with the inimitable Les Claypool and Primus!   You've gotta love a band full of consummate musicians with a sense of humor.    Case in point...They have released some of their records on Claypool's Prawn Song Records label, the title of which is a parody of Led Zeppelin's Swan Song label.

With their witty irreverence, these are serious musicians who make for a seriously fun and funny show.   We've seen Primus (and Les Claypool in many other configurations) for years, and they do not disappoint.

This show is all ages, so bring your punk kin and further their rock education, or make it a night out.  

We'll be giving away 4 pairs of tickets this Friday at noon.   Winners names will be on the guest list at the door.   Valid ID required.   Enter at the bottom of this post for your chance to win.   We never share, sell, spam or post contact info on bathroom walls.   Only the winners' first name and last initial will be published.

An Evening with Primus 2011 Tour

Primus is an American rock band formed in 1984, currently composed of guitarist Larry "Ler" LaLonde, vocalist and bassist Les Claypool, and drummer Jay Lane.Primus originally formed with Claypool, Todd Huth and Lane, with the latter two departing the band before Primus's debut release Suck on This, being replaced by drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander and Larry LaLonde. 

During this lineup, the band released four studio albums: Frizzle Fry, featuring "John the Fisherman", Sailing the Seas of Cheese, featuring "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver" and "Tommy the Cat", Pork Soda featuring "My Name Is Mud" and Tales from the Punchbowl, featuring their most commercially successful single, "Wynona's Big Brown Beaver". In 1996, Alexander left Primus and was replaced by Bryan "Brain" Mantia, with whom they would later release Brown Album and Antipop before placing Primus on hiatus in 2000. They were also known for creating the original theme for "South Park" in 1997.

In 2003, Claypool and LaLonde reunited with Tim Alexander and released a DVD/EP, Animals Should Not Try to Act Like People, before touring from 2003 through 2004. In 2010, it was announced that one of the band's earliest drummers Jay Lane had rejoined the band for a cross-country tour, and they later digitally released the free June 2010 Rehearsal EP. An eighth album, titled Green Naugahyde was just released.
