The Rooks: [www.therooksband.com/]

If you ask The Rooks about the origin of their sound, chances are they’ll concoct a tale of Frank Ocean, J Dilla, and the Talking Heads getting drunk at a dive bar in the year 2023, while Justin Vernon waits in the car to drive everyone home. Push them to be a little more specific (and a little less confusing), and they’ll tell you that The Rooks are equal parts kick-back, head-knock, and get-down; the music you rock to at the party, and the perfect soundtrack for the ride home.

A transplant from the Wesleyan University music scene, The Rooks have spent the last four years making noise across New York City and the greater Northeast, gaining substantial recognition for their debut EP, Something You Can Take (May 2013), follow-up single “Twister” (Jan 2014) and most recent releases “Secrets” and “Intermission (Wires)” (both premiered on Okayplayer).

Hard-hitting performances at Irving Plaza, Mercury Lounge and Brooklyn Bowl, as well as highly successful residencies at Arlene’s Grocery and Pianos NYC (second highest grossing residency in venue history) have earned them further acclaim, including Deli Magazine’s Artist of the Month award (Feb 2014) and recent win of the 14th Annual Independent Music Awards in the R&B/Soul category, finally providing their parents with a tangible means of bragging about their children.

The Rooks happily released their second EP, Wires, on Afropunk in June 2015, and are currently booking shows in 2016. They would love for you to join the party, because they’re having an incredible time!

The Stephanie Trussell Show

May 01, 2016 at WLS-AM 890 in Chicago.

Ted Cruz chose Carly Fiorina as his running mate. She’s a master at communicating conservative principles. Good choice? Some pundits say this was a desperate Hail Mary move. I say he’s fighting for The White House and thank God he’s not giving up.

Dennis Hastert is sentenced for violating bank regulations. He admitted to sexually abusing boys but he wasn’t charged. He should be prohibited from contact with all children until his treatment is proven successful and thrown under the jail. Tom Delay and others Republicans wrote character references for this monster. Shame on them!

I will be fresh from Arizona’s GOP State Convention. I am thrilled to be participating in the process.

Don’t miss the weekly Man on the Street Report from Mark Weyermuller at 10:30pm CST. I need my audience to be my cohost, call in and share your thoughts. Tune in via http://player.listenlive.co/22231.

Dating App Double Dip

Online dating from every angle

#GrindMe is a sketch and improv show that’s about more than exploring connections. Using inspiration from non-heteronormative social media, the show pushes past stereotypes and shows us the light and dark sides of each social network. It gets balls deep in the conversation and examines how websites like Grindr have given ALL people a greater sense of individuality.

Tinderella is a modern day love story in which an audience member’s fairytale is acted out live on stage in front of your very eyes by Under the Gun’s very own hilarious improvisers.
