March 05, 2017 at Appellation Wine Bar & Restaurant in Chicago.
We are a band from Chicago.
Cascader are an instrumental trio from Chicago exploring prog rock in three minute increments.
THE GOAT WIZARD
The Goat Wizard is a five-piece progressive rock band from Appleton, Wisconsin blending a raw math rock and post hardcore sound with more traditional prog. After sketching out an EP of demos as a two-piece in 2015, the band filled out their roster and worked on the material that would become their debut album, The Anthromancer, which was released in October 2016.
A well formed diverse group of 3 individuals who have been playing for over a decade each have now clashed together to bring fresh new sound to the music industry.
Dogs At Large
“Sat somewhere between the 90’s, Punk, Garage and Rock n’ Roll, Chicago exports Dogs At Large have recently returned from an audio-fashion shoot with the above and defiantly proclaimed, ‘It’s Nothing I’d Wear’…a release that doesn’t really sit anywhere in the genre-base specifically, rather on the fringe on a self-made eclectic seat … It is indeed “radio friendly” but beneath that facade there’s a beating heart of grit that’s barely suppressed and it beckons you.”
Electric Sheep are dual singer-songwriter fronted Psychedelic Pop from Chicago. Rooted in 60s pop songcraft, E-sheep often scale back to hooky groovy psych.
Grown out of the sludgy agar petri dish that is Chicago music, Bandy compiled in Summer 2016 to bring about revolutionary good times and sing about the vicissitudes of our many lives. Having performed previously with the late, great Bricklayers Foundation, Adam Cohen-Leadholm and Ross Howard have teamed up once again with some dear old friends to bring about an exciting new sound inspired by glam rock, psych-pop, post-punk, and R&B. Come share in the love!

In addition to her work as a natural psychic and Tarotologist, Laura also enjoys consulting the Spanish cards and various other oracles. Born in Mexico City, she is very familiar with Mexican folk magic and Pagan practices of her native land. A “Bruja” in tune with the cycles of nature and the magic within, she is always willing to help those in need. She’s also a co-editor of the e-zine “El Caldero” (Spanish) and the founder of “Boletin Pagano en Español” (Spanish) a meeting place on Facebook for the Spanish Pagan community; she also participated as a broadcaster for the Pagans Tonight Radio Network show on their Spanish version and currently hosts her own popular Spanish-English weekly podcast, Lunatic Mondays – Lunes Lunáticos. She’s presented various workshops for Chicago Pagan Pride (alongside Selena Fox) and for the “Ringing Anvil” community group. She has participated with Circle Sanctuary as a Speaker Presenter at Pagan Spirit Gathering 2015 (alongside Janet Farrar & Gavin Bone) and also at their Circle Sanctuary’s Samhain Festival 2015.

Wabakinoset is a Dance-Rock Quartet based in Denver, Colorado. Charles Elmer (Drums), George Demopoulos (Bass), Lucas Cozby (Keys), and Danny Chapa (Guitar) blend “four on the floor” and “drum and bass” rhythms in an improvisational style drawing influences from rock, jazz, and electronic music.
New York-based Israeli guitarist and vocalist Dida Pelled has a particular talent for storytelling. Whether it be a jazz standard, a scorching blues number, an old country ballad, or a heartfelt original “Dida sings in a voice sometimes playful, warm, resonant, no frills. She sings the words, giving them their meaning, their weight, with perfect diction and charm.” (Jazz Hot, France)
Joel Paterson is one of the most respected guitarists on the Windy City music scene. The blues/country/rockabilly/jazz guitar wizard has spent the last 10 years touring and recording with acts like Dave ‘Honey Boy’ Edwards, Wanda Jackson, Carl ‘Sonny’ Leyland, Jimmy Sutton’s Four Charms and Deke Dickerson. While Paterson can recreate the sound and feel of guitar greats, he can also nail the Chicago and delta blues and tear it up on a pedal steel. Plain and simple: this cat can play.
Dida and Joel will both be joined by Mikel Avery on drums and John Sutton on bass.
Digital technology has redefined what community means. We have access to new and distant localities. Our actions and our work can have immediate impact in the world. Conventional forms of identity and space such as the nation and city are becoming obsolete. This talk is about how writers and artists can leverage this expanded, globalized community to find audiences that are diverse and dynamic.
