Check out ChiIL Live Shows video interview with the band and original pit photos from FIDLAR's Lincoln Hall Pre-Lollapalooza 2012 Show!
We caught up with FIDLAR for a sweet pre-show video interview and got the inside dirt on their tattoos, views, new material, and more. They've got a sound all their own, but if you dig 80's punk, Social D, and The Pixies, check out FIDLAR!
FIDLAR-Lincoln Hall, opening for Delta Spirit--ChiIL Live Shows 8/1/12 So-Cal punks, FIDLAR, rocked Lincoln Hall in a sold out pre-Lolla bash. These skaters are taking Chi-Town by storm with a 4 day string of sold out gigs culminating in a 1pm set at Lollapalooza Saturday.
Check back with ChiIL Live Shows like we vote in Chi, IL...early and often for more exclusive band interviews, live show shots, reviews and music news.

West Coast Tour With The Hives Starts Today, On Tour Soon With Jeff The Brotherhood And Delta Spirit
"FIDLAR channel elements of classic acts like the White Stripes and Pixies, while practically begging for a co-headlining tour with contemporaries like Bass Drum of Death and JEFF the Brotherhood" -SPIN
"The tune can be summed up in a handful of image descriptions; sandboarding, grim reaper, suicidal flip-up hat, skull mask, and shred." - Filter Magazine
"We all have a major music crush on FIDLAR here at VICE" - Vice.com
"They remind me of Pixies a lot (an obvious link, given the singer's Frank Black style screeeeeeam), but there's also some really, really nice'n'fuzzy guitars in there that sound like they've been nicked from the blueprint Death In Vegas followed on 'Aiesha'." - NME
"FIDLAR has an agressive, straightforward, but melodic conception of punk." - LA Times
"But one wouldn't mistake the band for one of its slacker subjects, not when they play this fast. The tracks sizzle with the aggression and bargain-price fidelity of the SoCal punk tradition, though FIDLAR's catchy hooks have more in common with Social Distortion and Wavves than Black Flag. " - MTV Buzz
