Outer Minds (6:00) - (Set time: 6:00 PM)
Outer Minds (6:00)
Chicago’s explosive and underrated Outer Minds have finally come to the surface after simmering in the underworld in several different incarnations over the past few years, and with unbelievably great results. Sharpening their sound into a legion of 60s pop/psych textures and nuances normally reserved for the baroque set with their impeccable glockenspiel-laden arrangements, Outer Minds weave a rich web of sound around impossibly perfect hooks and deliver an impressive EP worthy of your immediate attention. Lead by Zach Medearis (Black Beauties, Lover!) and A-Ron Orlowski’s (Baseball Furies, Lover!, Dirges) fine assemblage of rough-cut harmonies, the band has gone through more name and roster changes than most, but once the current lineup coalesced into the tight-knit unit performing today, everything fell into place to create this sumptuous wall of sound that will blow your little mind to bits.
.Chaperone. - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
.Chaperone.
Beginning as a moniker for Shaun Paul’s intimate bedroom melodies, Chaperone has swelled into a full-time quintet. A melding of several different eras of music, the Chicago band’s sound is a jangly 21st-century version of yesteryear’s radio rock. Sing-along harmonies and raucous percussion laced over driving bass lines give the group its expansive sound. Their unique songs and impassioned live act have generated a growing buzz in the Midwest with each performance. Chaperone spent much of 2009 recording, writing and fine-tuning their set, but 2010 brought their second visit to SXSW Music festival, infinite touring and an upcoming e.p....thus far.
Joan of Arc - (Set time: 8:15 PM)
Joan of Arc
Jumping between mathy ballads, acoustic meanderings, minimalist experimentation, and post-rock-indie-epics, Joan Of Arc have exhibited a fearless artistry in their 14 years of existence. A seemingly inseparable appendage of the group's only consistent member Tim Kinsella, JOA is, in our humble opinion, one of the most unapologetically prolific bands of our generation - both in output and artistic vision. Joyful Noise Recordings
Mickey (4:30) - (Set time: 4:30 PM)
Mickey (4:30)
Mac Blackout, aka Mark McKenzie, is one of the most genuinely weird weirdos making rock music in Chicago—and I should know, since I was in the Functional Blackouts with him till the band imploded in 2006. On top of playing in the Daily Void, he’s now fronting a new group, Mickey, with four like-minded knucklehead savants (meaning they’re just as likely to get kicked out of a club), and it’s giving him the chance to bring the feral bubblegum he’s been recording at home for a few years to full flower onstage. Mickey’s beautiful, ferocious scum-glam has all the rock-on catchiness of T. Rex and Milk ’n Cookies without the “let’s pretend we’re bisexual and our balls haven’t dropped yet” bullshit that often comes with the territory.
Radar Eyes - (Set time: 6:45 PM)
Radar Eyes
When is noisy garage rock much more than that? When it’s produced by Chicago’s Radar Eyes, which is why even though their Plustapes debut was covered in a lo-fi grime, it still caught many people’s attention with its dark melodies and nearly pop hooks. Loud Loop Press
Tiger Bones (5:15) - (Set time: 5:15 PM)
Tiger Bones (5:15)
Chicago indie quartet Tiger Bones already have something huge going for them: Their forthcoming full-length record, released on the band's own label Dedd Foxx, will be distributed by Matador Records, home to indie staples like Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Yo La Tengo and the New Pornographers. First though, the locals offer debut EP “Go Over Here,” which provides a clattering soundtrack to surfing back to the ‘80s, where songs like “Silence” and restless “Eyeliner” (which brings to mind Ra Ra Riot’s “Dying is Fine”) echo enough to send a stiff wind through puffy hair. Though the jittery groove of “Native” ensures people won’t be standing still as the music wafts over them.
Jon Langford & Skull Orchard - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
Jon Langford & Skull Orchard
"Lyrics that despair of politics, find true pain in true love, unhinge from terra firma, and gripe about the road are delivered with country plainness, glimmers of spirituality, plenty of rolled r's, and the sense that by singing reality you can make it mean something." —Robert Christgau, Village Voice
Paul Cary (3:45) - (Set time: 3:45 PM)
Paul Cary (3:45)
Paul Cary, formerly of the Horrors-In The Red Records, has ventured out on his own. A little wiser, a little more jaded, but always a rocker. Half recorded by Mike Lust at Fantom Manor and half by Johnathan Crawford in their practice space at Clown Town. Like Mr. Cary's previous work Ghost of a Man is a lo-fi garage rock gem. Not to be missed.
Rabble Rabble - (Set time: 3:00 PM)
Rabble Rabble
Rabble Rabble is a psych punk band that hails from Chicago, IL. Their sound, developed over the course of the past four years, has grown in to a contemporary take on psychedelic rock. The band creates a complex layering of sound rich with blues undertones and frenetic guitar play.
Waco Brothers - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Waco Brothers
Ladies and gentlemen, quite possibly the best live rock band on the planet. We've seen them a hundred and sixty seven times, and the Waco Brothers never fail to entertain with their train wreck approach to country. Subtlety is for the weak, so they've chosen the path of optimum mayhem and tomfoolery. In their rollicking career, they have been called everything from the flagship act of the alternative country "movement" to pure butchery. Both are likely to be correct.

The line-up, in case you haven't been paying attention: Jon Langford (Mekons, Pine Valley Cosmonauts), Steve Goulding (Mekons, Pine Valley Cosmonauts, Graham Parker & the Rumour), Alan Doughty (Jesus Jones), Deano (Dollar Store, Wreck), Tracy Dear (World's Greatest Living Englishman), and Marc Durante (KMFDM).

In a world of corporate-sponsored tours by lame-o alt-rockers complaining about their hotel suites and "country" stars who owe more to Boston than Bakersfield, the Wacos go out every night and play as if their lives depended on it. Their shows at SXSW and CMJ are legendary, and every year threaten to actually collapse under the weight of their runaway brilliance. If you're not drunk, sweaty and out of money at the end of one of their shows, then brother, we pity you.
Kids These Days - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Kids These Days
Kids These Days comes from Chicago but their music comes from everywhere. With three horns, a rapper, a blues-rock trio and a female singer, KTD blends a wide range of influences -- hip-hop, jazz, soul, blues, and classic rock -- into a unique, fresh sound that breaks boundaries while honoring America’s musical heritage.
