    The Eternals w/ special guest Nick Mazzarella + Snake Union + Peter Redgrave

    $10
    Chicago's own superheroes, The Eternals bring forth an unknown magic in a quartet form as they headline a night with friends. Snake Union will present their unique dueling psychedelic electronics from Brooklyn and Peter Redgrave will unfold solo mysterious moves culled from Baltimore and beyond. A night of wonderment and exploration not to be missed!

The Eternals:

Damon Locks: vocals
Wayne Montana: guitar
TBA: drums
Nick Mazzarella: alto saxophone

 

The Eternals are a three piece hailing from the city of Chicago. Their music pulls from a variety of sources, foremost amongst them Reggae, Jazz and Soul. These influences all play a large role in the rhythms utilized by the group, creating music which is sometimes rolling, sometimes sparse, with staccato melodies provided courtesy of bass, organ, synthesizer and drums. The band also makes use of melodica, a tape machine, and a sound effects generator. Vocals and dance moves (for concert goers) bring the point home. The roots of The Eternals can be found in the percussive and melodic sounds of great artists like Augustus Pablo and The Headhunters. At times, it seems to transform from something familiar into something otherworldly.

 

Snake Union:

Dave Grant – modular synthesizer
Chuck Bettis – electronics

 

SNAKE UNION is a Brooklyn based experimental electronic group consisting of Chuck Bettis (Die Trommel Fatale, Mossenek) and David Grant (Action Patrol, On A Clear Day). A duo that works in improvisational rhythmic explorations that match analog synths and digital sound processing, modular wires and max patches. By turns psychedelic, delicate, and fuzzed out, the sequenced collides with the freeform as these two soundmakers push into new realms.
