Chicago Psych Fest X
Chicago Psych Fest X
The longest-running festival of psychedelia in Chicago turns 10 years old and is celebrating with a 3-DAY BLOWOUT featuring some of the highlights from the years, special collaborative sets, re-unity, and fresh faces.
Dos Santos
Dos Santos
Dos Santos is a quintet based in Chicago. Their elasticity & consistency in live performance and their recorded output have garnered them wide attention as one of the city’s most potent, impactful performers. Collectively raised through the pedagogy of American popular and traditional Latin music, their future-minded sound gestures forward into an idealized new progressive American music, as rooted in Chicago as it is communicable with the world.

After making their debut in May of 2013, Dos Santos has been steadily making the rounds at Chicago’s premiere live music venues and festivals—from the prestigious Millennium Park Summer Music Series to the exclusive Chicago World Music Festival. In March of 2015, they released their critically-acclaimed self-titled debut cd Dos Santos and subsequently toured the United States, making appearances at SXSW, the Pachanga Latino Music Festival, and the Ruido Fest Latin Alternative Music Festival along the way. In 2016, the band released their follow-up EP entitled “Fonografic” on Electric Cowbell Records produced by Beto Martínez of Grammy Award-winning Grupo Fantasma. Recently, they teamed up with Money Chicha to release a 7" vinyl split entitled "Summit Sessions" on Sonorama Discos. Their highly-anticipated debut LP on International Anthem is now available worldwide. Read more about it here.

The group’s five members (Peter Vale, Alex Chavez, Daniel Villarreal-Carrillo, Jaime Garza, Nathan Karagianis) have their own storied careers in a range of styles—including jazz, R&B/soul, traditional Mexican folk, punk, cumbia, salsa, and electronica—in addition to a history of critical involvement in arts education and social justice organizing.
Vee Dee
Vee Dee
Chicago acid-punk trio Vee Dee started out a decade ago as a straightforward garage band influenced by the likes of DMZ, Crime, and the New York Dolls, but on their new double album, Public Mental Health System, they’ve resuscitated that pre-orthodox punk aesthetic. The tunes average five or six minutes—only the shortest comes in at three—and combine the aggressive rhythmic simplicity of punk with the far-out freedom of 21st-century psychedelia. Singer and guitarist Nick Myers calls it “a non-concept double album about depression,” but the music seems more like a cure for ADHD—a dose of Ritalin for concentration-impaired echo boomers with surgically implanted iPods.
