Big Lazy
Big Lazy
NYC’s gritty instrumental trio Big Lazy has flourished for 20 years, creating film music and playing its singular brand of crime jazz and highway twang from dive bars to The Whitney Museum of American Art. Big Lazy founder Stephen Ulrich is the composer for the HBO series Bored to Death.
The Rectors
The Rectors
Psychobilly madness guaranteed to exorcise your demons. Born in the modern Sodom and Gomorrah that is Philadelphia, The Rectors seize congregations lost to sin and vice, baptize 'em in holy wine, wring 'em out, and hang 'em on a cross to dry. If you can't get clean to the thumping punk of The Rectors, you ain't never gettin' clean.
The Claudettes
The Claudettes
The Claudettes fuse Chicago piano blues with the full-throttle energy of rockabilly and punk and the sultriness of '60s soul to write a thrilling new chapter in American roots music. Johnny Iguana mashes the piano alongside singer Berit Ulseth, bassist/singer Zach Verdoorn and drummer Matt Torre. Johnny, who toured for years with his cult-favorite rock band oh my god, is also a member of the Grammy-nominated groups Chicago Blues--A Living History and the Muddy Waters 100 Band. He has toured/recorded with Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush and more. The Claudettes just recorded their forthcoming album with producer Mark Neill (Black Keys, Paladins, Old 97's).

GREG KOT, CHICAGO TRIBUNE A revelatory blend of jazz and blues, stirred with punk brio. There are also dashes of classical and world music, and enough stops, starts and hairpin turns to suggest the giddiness of Raymond Scott's cartoon music...How do they do it?

JEFF ELBEL, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES Chicago’s premiere punk-blues group are back in high gear. Their fusion of sounds (ranges) from Otis Spann to the Minutemen and from Ray Charles to Raymond Scott…(and they) do wicked things to standards.

NEW CITY (CHICAGO) Definitely one you should be spinning…there’s enough energy going on to power your average Third World airport…barreling, hyper-saloon piano banging…you have to hear it to believe it…Chicago’s own neo-vaudeville barnstormers!

TONY SARABIA, WBEZ (CHICAGO NPR) Call it “Brother Ray Meets the Ramones,” “Barrelhouse Thunder,” “Chopin Meets the Minutemen”…or maybe, just call it great music.

DOWNBEAT Hits listeners upside the head with a mash-up of Otis Spann blues, Albert Ammons boogie-woogie, Ray Charles soul and “Fess” Longhair New Orleans R&B. Catch them in a chaotic ballroom!

BLUES MUSIC MAGAZINE Like Keith Moon chasing a crazed, punked-up Little Richard… greasy rhythm and blues that makes the dance floor so slippery you need to sprinkle sawdust on the floor to keep from falling down…a great ride, one that'll leave you shaking and laughing and wanting more the next time this rowdy carnival comes to town.
