Hot Bagels Headline the Show Tonight!

You may have heard ’em on CHIRP, or seen ’em in the Reader or Deli Magazine, but if you haven’t caught their show yet, tonight’s the night! Just be sure to get there early for Mike Donner.

Mike Donner Show Tomorrow!

Mike Donner makes music that’s a little bit country, a little bit stoned, and doesn’t that sound fantastic. Really like their sound, with influences ranging from Merle Haggard to the Stones to Dead Meadow – only louder. They’re currently recording a new album with Grabbing Clouds Records & Tapes, and hopefully that’ll be out sooner than later. Until then, check out a track from their demo to see what they’re all about, then come out to the show!

Prairie Porn at the Green Room this Thursday!

Prairie Porn is known to embrace all aspects of porn and prairie, so we have that in common. They’re currently working on a new album, which they hope is out this summer, but until then you can hear their breed of garage rock by clicking play below. They took a moment to chat about their influences and current favorites, so keep on readin’ on to learn more – then come out to the show!

 

 

Who are some of your biggest musical influences?

Starting off we were really into the SanFran garage punk scene– bands like Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall. This was all wrapped up in more classic favorites like the Pixies and the Stones. There’s obviously a big female inspiration too– Joan Jett… Kim Deal and the Breeders.

 

What is some music worth sharing? Something new? Local favorites?

We originated in the suburbs of Elgin actually where we’ve got our own little music scene. Some friends of ours include Red Deer Cave People, Tea, & Cave Tree.

 

In the city I’m a big fan of the Sueves, Today’s Hits, Thee Yolks, Uh Bones, the Rubs, Strange Faces.
