“Weirdly hypnotic and catchy... Absolutely bewitching.”
—Chicago Reader
80 Foots — the world’s only End Times vocal trio — formed in 2013 after collaborating on Theater Oobleck’s Baudelaire In A Box project, and have steadily grown a repertoire of songs that harvests from old-time, early American, and international music forms to meditate on death, sadness, and falling down stairs. Their 11-song debut release is an acerbic benediction to our present era of woe, meandering through a fitful journey of irritation, confusion, unaccountable equanimity, surprise, more irritation, remorse, and, finally, resigned elegy. All with pretty harmonies. 80 Foots is made up of singer-songwriters Emmy Bean, T-Roy Martin, and Chris Schoen. 80 Foots has shared the stage with Chicago mainstays The Crooked Mouth, as well as Sad Brad Smith, Angela James, Sara Leginsky, Alisa Rosenthal, $11 Dollar Supper, Jeremy and Bekah Miller, Bobby Conn, Ronnie Kuller, and many more.
Cpt. Captain
Cpt. Captain
Cpt. Captain is a Chicago-based indie-country band, influenced as much by our roots in old-school country music --harmonies harkening back to Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris-- as by the sprawling branches on our family tree of Chicago contemporaries. A well-seasoned group, with backgrounds in classical, jazz, and theatrical performance, as well as rock-and-roll, members currently share our talents with the likes of Moon Men, Ami Saraiya & the Outcome, Le Tour, Davenport Ed, Gussied, Cameron McGill, and the Morningsides. Following the release of their debut EP Everything Is Easy Without you in 2011, we were pleased to share the stage with great bands like the Lumineers, Judson Claibourn, Ode, Lawrence Peters, Golden Horse Ranch Band, Ed and the Red Reds, Balto, and Tractor Kings, playing locally, regionally, and beyond. Call us old fashioned, but Cpt. Captain still believes in the basics that built country music: three chords and the truth. Now, we might get fanciful with either (or both) of those building blocks in the course of any given tune, but they still hold up strong as ever.
