Daisychain, Footlight District, Reilly Downes

Ages 21 and up
Tuesday, April 25
DOORS: 8:30pm | SHOW: 9pm

Similar to the dichotomous nature of their name, blues/psych rock foursome Daisychain produces a sound that is a beautiful series of contradictions: ambiguous, yet easily comprehensible; brutally honest while also soothing; rooted in classic rock and still trippy enough to please the ears of 21st century listeners. The female-fronted band from Chicago, who are also the best of friends, use music as a tool to connect and most importantly, channel feelings around the craziness of modern life. Moody, soulful, and sultry, Daisychain’s classic rock ‘n’ roll sound is one that a wide variety will relate to because it is based around universal emotions.

Hailing from Chicago, The Footlight District is a 5 piece blues influenced garage rock band consisting of 5 siblings. Anchored by raw soulful bluesy instrumentals, strong vocals and peppered with tight sibling harmonies; their music is soulful, gritty, and passionate. Not to mention their live shows are truly unforgettable! 

Fresh off their UK tour, promoting their latest single “Lightning”, a collab with Russell Marsden (Band Of Skulls). The Footlight District is currently in production for their next album. Which will tear apart everything you know and rebuild it with the building blocks of rock & roll!

Reilly Downes is the Sad Cowgirl of Chicago. An Americana artist hailing from the Texas Hill Country, she cut her teeth as a session musician in Nashville, singing behind some of Americana’s favorite singer/songwriters.

Reilly’s music has been described as “easy on the ears, but hard on the heart” by Music Mecca in Nashville. Her songs divert from typical contemporary country and draw on her Texas roots with a sound that “cuts across each track like a rattlesnake, adding some extra honesty and grit.” 

Reilly’s first solo album, Spent, earned her the #1 spot for Americana releases in 2022 as well as features on The Boot among other Americana and Country covering media. Since then, her haunting rendition of “Wicked Game” has landed her radio play, a feature on Spotify’s “Vibes” playlist, and more.
