Boo Baby is a Chicago musical act looking, above all, to put on a show. That show is “a meditation on joy” according to a review by Picture This Post. Founders Kevin Tellie and Robert Salazar share a back-of-the-bus banter and easy musical interplay that comes from playing together for 15+ years. The addition of experimental artist Thomas Huston on drums has added further artistic dimension both heady for the college crowd and groovy for the stoned.

Discovering their live show feels like stumbling on a mom and pop gas station; friendly faces happy to get your motor runnin’. In its nearly 6 year history, Boo Baby has opened for acts such as Whitney, Karl Blau, TJ & Dave, Friendship, and David Liebe Hart (Tim & Eric). They have held a residency at the IO theater and released their debut album Orange You Glad via Hickory Lane Records.

Their follow-up album, The Opening Band, comes out in 2022 from Summersteps Records.

The Foons are a synth-heavy indie-rock band based out of Chicago, IL, with roots in the Bay Area and Evanston. The group is comprised of songwriter/multi-Instrumentalist Erik Rothlind, Brendan Doshi on keys, drummer/producer Taed Cejtin, and his older twin brothers Sam and Will Cejtin on bass and guitar. The Foons blend tender-punk-indie-pop, with experimental and electronic music.

Waltzer is a Chicago Indie-rock band. Keep an eye out for a tour announcement for 2022! Woohoo!
