SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 29 AT THE BEAT KITCHEN
IN CELEBRATION OF THE RELEASE OF”BECOME THE NOT FOUND”THEIR NEW LIMITED-EDITION VINYL LPALSO AVAILABLE DIGITALLY THIS WINTER
For a third straight year, Chicago’s STATE AND MADISON will bring their annual “Fall Formal” to the Beat Kitchen for what has come be to be known as a rock’n’roll prom: The city’s best indie bands and their fans all dressed in their finest for a full-blown rock show.
STATE AND MADISON will headline the event on Saturday, November 29 at the Beat Kitchen in Chicago, joined by Urbanites, The Noise FM and special guest The Frantic. The event will be hosted by DJ Risky Bizness who will also spin DJ sets before the performances and in-between sets.
Best known for delivering pop-infused indie-rock with a signature punch, an always infectious live show and consistently giving back to their loyal fans, STATE AND MADISON started their “Fall Formal” tradition in 2006. The event turns live performances into a formal-themed event, delivering a concert atmosphere that captures the essence of a proper affair. Fans are asked to attend in gowns and tuxes to be a part of the experience.
This year, STATE AND MADISON’s performance at the Fall Formal will highlight the recent release of their new LP BECOME THE NOT FOUND, just made available in August. The limited-edition vinyl pressing of the release showcases the band’s eclectic combination of indie-pop and soul-tinged rock. The album is also set for digital release just in time for the holidays and will feature a special acoustic version of “London Bridges Burning Down.” This version of the song was recorded live during an online webcast held in October that allowed fans to watch the entire recording process as it happened.
Joining STATE AND MADISON for the Fall Formal event will be Chicago electro-rock outfit URBANITES and Lawrence, KS indie trio THE NOISE FM who will celebrate the release of their new album Dream Of The Attack, also due out digitally in December. Hometown pop-punk heroes THE FRANTIC will appear as a special guest. Southside native DJ Risky Bizness–who adds to his ever-growing resume that includes numerous mixtapes, club residencies and featured appearances–will host the event and spin between acts.
