TNK: Snowmine, Freelance Whales & Hundred Waters at Lincoln Hall 1/19/13 #TNK

ChiIL Live Shows will be there for Snowmine...will YOU?!   We'll be shooting stills and we'll have a photo filled recap for you shortly thereafter.

Just because it's January in Chi, IL, that's no reason not to have a music fest!   The annual Tomorrow Never Knows fest is back to thaw your frozen soul.   ChiIL Live Shows will be covering the fest and shooting stills of some of our top picks.   Check out our recommendations and get outta the house and hear some great bands.

Snowmine will be playing Lincoln Hall next Saturday, January 19th with Freelance Whales and Hundred Waters for the Tomorrow Never Knows festival.

The Brooklyn-based band blends afrobeat with electro-acoustic pop that melds into catchy, upbeat songs that always keep the room dancing. They craft a unique show by incorporating a special interactive app, Colorbeast, which takes sound from the live show and filters it into vibrant visuals in real time. 

XPN comments on this experience declaring, "Brooklyn’s Snowmine envelope you in their intricate layers of texture and atmosphere."  

You can listen to tunes from their 2011 album, Laminate Pet Animal, as well as their great follow-up single, "Saucer Eyes" here. They have just finished their sophomore record, to be released this year and will be performing songs from the upcoming LP for the first time.  

Snowmine don't just want to create music that you hear. They want to make music that you feel, that is in every breath, every corner and settles deep within the heart.
The Brooklyn quintet formed out of a longtime friendship between bassist Jay Goodman, drummer Alex Beckmann, and lead singer/composer Grayson Sanders. They soon met guitarist Austin Mendenhall after his then recent move from the DC jazz scene, and finally invited their old friend, guitarist Calvin Pia, to complete the five-piece.
Sanders, the son of an opera singer and oil painter, discovered a voracious appetite for Classical and IDM music at an early age. A zealous disciple of Stravinsky, Ravel, Bartok, Ligeti and Autechre, he spent the better part of his adolescent life in a bedroom, hunched over manuscript paper or staring at a computer screen. By the time he was 22, he had written five full symphonic premiers, including a recent modern orchestral cover of Bjork’s “Cover Me.”
These classical influences can be found throughout their music, while also combining elements of classic afrobeat, electro-acoustic soundscapes and early 20th Century orchestrations.
Snowmine self-released and self-produced their debut LP, Laminate Pet Animal, in May 2011 to much critical acclaim and solidified their presence in the hearts of loyal fans across the country, playing grandiose performances with chamber orchestras, installation art gallery shows and just about anything in between.
The band has spent the summer hard at work recording their new LP to be released in early 2013. Recorded in Germano Studios in Manhattan and Doctor Wu's in Brooklyn, the new record promises to build on the band's distinguished, textual and rich sound.
Right now one thing is certain. Next year is going to be a very, very busy one for the band.

Quotes /
"New York trio Bear In Heaven turns its synthesizers into a full orchestra. Leader Jon Philpot uses his voice as an instrument, opting for patterns over melodies, and guitars recall the Cure while reaching for the stars." LA Times

"The band created an impromptu dance club setting, with an extraordinarily visceral onslaught of pounding kick drums and distorted bass lines that had much of the room, and frontman Jon Philpot in particular, dancing in earnest." Boston Globe

"Another outstanding entry from the electro-enclave, Brooklyn-based Bear in Heaven's I Love You, It's Cool is a slick ride—harder to brush off than the "aw, shucks" title suggests" Filter

"Its songs are sweet, reasonably simple and charmingly buzzy, with each whirring synth wrapped around a core of pure pop" NPR

"Melody, texture, and groove, yet I have not the slightest idea how to dance to it — making it a glorious electro-pop mystery" Esquire
