Three Friends Memorial Show
Celebrating the lives of our friends Doug Meis, John Glick and Michael Dahlquist
The Returnables
The Returnables
Mixing the power pop thrust of the Real Kids and the Undertones with the buzzsaw aggression of the Saints and Teengenerate, The Returnables lived in a world where teenage kicks were just around the corner and everbody went to Vince Lombardi High.
Pamphleteers
Pamphleteers
Pamphleteers derive from a deep and abiding commitment to the hook and the occasional trip to the whitewashed stratosphere.

Drawing on myriad influences from the early British Invasion, nascent psychedelia, proto-metal, to 1980’s new wave, Rebecca Crawford, Geoff Atkinson, and Jonathan Ben-Isvy yield tuneful nuggets and aggressively moody dirges that result in a sort of psychedelic new wave delivered with punk urgency.
Light Coma and Andy Cohen
Light Coma and Andy Cohen
Light Coma is a rock band from Chicago, IL. They're not charting new territory. The songs come together despite the lack of musicianship shown by the members of the band. The songs will sneak up on you. Don't write them off. They're better than you think. They will make you have feelings.

Halfway through this set, Light Coma will shift gears to Crazy Horse-mode behind Andy Cohen (Silkworm, Bottomless Pit, Mint Mile).
The Good Points
The Good Points are Emily, Ian, and Paul, whose combined first initials create the acronyms EIP (Easy Investment Plan) and PEI (Prince Edward Island), or just the word, pie. They play drums, organ and guitar (dog). Song themes include word games, emergency vehicles, the night time, and time travel.

They are a small rock band formed from former members of various sized rock bands such as The Dials, Submarine Races, Maximum Wage, and Happy Supply.
