Chicago’s resident “lake-punk” power trio Damager have a bone to pick with standing still. Evoking the soaring melodies of 70s pub rock through the fuzzy adrenaline of Green Day and Husker Du, they bring a fiery, triumphant performance to every stage. Get on your kilt and crack a beer, it’ll be a good time.
Anything is Everything — self-proclaimed “Chicago’s Wurst Punk Band” — is a four piece outfit formed in 2018 with one plan: rule the world. The group has evolved past its original pop-punk influences of blink-182 and Taking Back Sunday into the harsher tones that underlie their newer album, “a tragic optimism”, which was released in February 2023.
Heavy shit from Chicago.
