In 1997, Jeremy Wrenn formed a two-man shoegaze project called Airiel. Fast forward to 2022 the now 4 piece live band has toured nationally and internationally, released two full length albums, several singles and five EP’s (including a box set). It’s loud. It’s pretty. You can dance to it.

On “No Dreams for Fayres”, singer Sarah Cogan’s sweet, flowy vocals coast effortlessly atop Dylan Frankland’s crystalline guitars, every note conjuring up the jangled melodies of classic groups like The Smiths, The Sundays, and Cocteau Twins. Under it all, drummer Cian O’Neill’s driving percussion propels the song into the stratosphere. But “No Dreams for Fayres” isn’t merely an exercise in nostalgia — TALLIES’ modern twist adds a tightness, an urgency, an awareness that breathes new life into a beloved genre.

COOL HEAT is a lo-fi artist hailing from Chicago. Started in 2019 it is the solo project of musician and photographer Eden Sierotnik, formerly a member of the now defunct dream pop outfit Color Card. The music is a blend of post-punk and dream pop with an emphasis on hazy soundscapes and shimmering guitars.

DJ Scary Lady Sarah and DJ Philly Peroxide of SHIMMER – Chicago’s only evening devoted entirely to shoegaze & dreampop music – will be DJing between sets.
