Bloodiest + Follows at Cobra Lounge: Photo gallery
Faux-fey, jangly, vaguely amateurish indie-pop may get a lot of blog love these days, but Chicago's underground maintains a heritage of heavy that has Touch 'N' Go's heyday as constant in the back of its mind even as its body is set on guitar-abusing and drum destruction. Culling its line-up for much-loved acts 90 Day Men, Yakuza, Lustre King and Sterling's Eric Chaleff and Tony Lazzara, Bloodiest has a lot to live up to. Follows, featuring Chaleff, Lazzara and Time Out Chicago's own Mia Clarke—of Electrelane fame, was also on the bill for some sonic slaughter at Cobra Lounge last night.
