TUE:May.11 (9:30pm; $3)
The Blamers // Dogs of Fortune // Cpt. Captain (Yards & Gods)
WED:May.12 (9:30pm; $5 advance, $8)
GIVERS (Valcour) // Paperbear // Abbott Smile

Lafayette, Louisiana’s GIVERS’ music has been described as everything from afrobeat to folk to “what the DIRTY PROJECTORS should sound like,” but we prefer Daytrotter’s description: “a young band that combines a Capri-Sun, good-time summer feeling, some sneaky reggae grooves, the youthful exuberance of RA RA RIOT and a sing-along sentiment that gets into you immediately.” Featuring a smorgasbord of instruments and passionately dueling vocals, these guys are definitely a ‘band to watch.’ Local quintet PAPERBEAR will be debuting new tunes tonight from a forthcoming long player due in June and ABBOTT SMILE share their version of chaotic, indie pop music to open the show.

THU:May.13 (9:30pm; $3 advance, $5)
Maximum Wage (Rococo single release) (Rococo) (related:The Lanterns, The Ponys, Red Eyed Legends, The Returnables, Submarine Races, White Savage) // Blasted Diplomats // Tyler Jon Tyler (Rococo single release) (Rococo)

Local trio MAXIMUM WAGE know their way around the Chicago rock scene all too well; featuring former members of THE PONYS, SUBMARINE RACES, LANTERNS, and RED EYED LEGENDS the group builds on influences from their past projects to create swaggering 60s-inspired reverb reeling rock. Expect some brand spankin new tunes tonight as they celebrate the release of their newest LP with us here. Local garage rock quartet BLASTED DIPLOMATS are also no stranger to the stages across our fair city and they hit the stage after TYLER JON TYLER play their undeniably catchy, ramshackle tunes from their recently released a 7″ via Chicago-based Trouble in Mind, which they’ll have for your bemused listening pleasure at tonight’s show. Throughout the night members of all three bands will be jumping behind the turntable to keep the party going all night long.

FRI:May.14 (5:30pm; Free!)
Hard Country Honky-Tonk with The Hoyle Brothers
The HOYLES consider themselves the ‘real thing’ and use traditional instrumentation to play Texas shuffle, rave-up and honky-tonk music from country’s ‘true’ musical legends, for those of you who long for and recall the days when ‘country was country’.

FRI:May.14 (10:00pm; $8)
The Lonesome Organist (Thrill Jockey) // Sonoi (record release) (Low Transit Industries) // David Daniell (AntiopicFamily VineyardTable of the Elements) (related:David Daniell & Douglas McCombs, Rhys Chatham, San Agustin)

Come on down to the Empty Bottle tonight to welcome back THE LONESOME ORGANIST to the stage for the first time in almost four years, since the release of his fantastic Forms and Follies, issued by the local Thrill Jockey imprint. Tonight we will also be celebrating the release of the debut LP from experimental pop trio SONOI – expect to hear brand new tunes from the self titled release out on Meno Mosso. Combining tasteful, ambient atmospherics with textured, thumping melodic lines, SONOI defy generalizations with their lovely pop songs. DAVID DANIELL takes a solo turn on our stage to open. Frequently joined by other master collaborators, the uniting thread between all of Mr. DANIELL’S performances is his guitar playing, which builds on itself, becoming an orchestra, an organ or anything his mind and fingers can imagine.

SAT:May.15 (9:30pm; $15)
Greg Laswell (Vanguard) // Jimmy Gnecco (Bright Antenna) (related:Ours) // Brian Wright
Producer/songwriter GREG LASWELL comes to the Bottle tonight debuting tracks off his third full-length release via Vanguard, Take A Bow, a collection of songs recorded over a solitary span of time in Arizona last year. Chances are you’ve heard GREG LASWELL before, even if you don’t know it as his songs are frequently utilized for particularly dreamy/dramatic moments on Grey’s Anatomy, One Tree Hill, The Hills and a slew of other shows you’re embarrassed to admit that you watch. The shows might be cheesy, but the music is lovely so check out the new tunes live tonight. Another voice you might recognize, JIMMY GNECCO steps out from fronting alt rock band OURS, with his debut solo effort, The Heart, an album full of quiet melancholy. Joining LASWELL for much of this spring tour is singer/songwriter BRIAN WRIGHT with songs off his most recent House on Fire, an album CNN praised for sounding like a collection that comes from a time “before music was a business, when music served a purpose.”

SUN:May.16 (7:00pm; Free!)
Rock & Roll Cinema featuring

SUN:May.16 (9:30pm; $3)
The Deep Dark Woods (Black HenSaved By Vinyl) // I Ching Quartet // Matt Crews
Hailing from our neighbor to the north, DEEP DARK WOODS come through Chicago tonight with new songs from their latest effort, Winter House out via Black Hen. The LP overruns with raw emotion, sadness, new sounds, well thought out arrangements and soaring vocals and harmonies. Joining them tonight is I CHING QUARTET, surprisingly boasting six members, and local soulful singer songwriter MATT CREWS.

MON:May.17 (9:30pm; Free!)
When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth (CardboardChalk CircleEmperor JonesStunnedUs Two) // KK Rampage (record release) (Big NeckRococo) // Psychic Steel // Alex Barnett (Catholic Tapes)
Another fantastic ‘free Monday’ line-up, this outing features a headlining performance by avant-garde garage rockers WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH. Referencing a unique group of influences, the band has been described by the Austin Chronicle as manifesting the “eventual evolution” of noise. The double vision seven piece (two drummers, two guitarists, two vocalists, but only one lone bassist) tears and screams through staccato ragers. Angsty deconstructionists KK RAMPAGE return tonight to celebrate the release of their newest LP, a group of tracks that fit well with their catalogue of experimental and abrasive journeys into dementia made by a group that approaches music with an earnestness and enthusiasm that we have long championed. Local one man noise machines PSYCHIC STEEL and ALEX BARNETT join the cacophony. With a free Monday this loud, how can you stay home?

MON:May.17 (6:30pm; $78 tickets)

WED:May.19 (9:00pm; $5 (limited), $8)
Shuttle (Ninja Tune) (related:Passion Pit) // Clique Talk (Psychic Violence) // Bear The Bell // ANR (Ten Thousand Islands)
You may know SHUTTLE from his highly touted remixes of PHOENIX, MICACHU and THE DEATH SET, or from sets with SPANK ROCK, DIPLO and CRYSTAL CASTLES. Or you may know SHUTTLE from his Ninja Tune released collection of bedroom remixes, Tunnel, which nabbed the #1 spot on New Yorker’s SASHA FRERE JONES’ top songs of 09. But more than likely you have heard music from his day job as a drummer and producer for a little band that sold out 2 shows at the Congress Theater last month, PASSION PIT. Joining SHUTTLE tonight are dark wave and electro funky trio CLIQUE TALK and local experimental indie group BEAR THE BELL, so put on your dancing shoes and get yourself down to the Empty Bottle dance party tonight.

THU:May.20 (9:30pm; $10)
The Spits (Thrift Store) // Nobunny (1-2-3-4 Go!Almost ReadyBubbledumbBurger) // Mickey (HoZac)
If you hate trouble, tonight might be a good night to steer clear of the Empty Bottle. Spunky sarcastic punks the SPITS return with their quick-blurt songs that generally last no longer than one or three minutes, songbursts disaffectedly and haphazardly thrown together, and most often overtaken by drenching, fuzzed-out reverb. You’d be wrong if you think this isn’t good, because the overall effect is actually pretty great, and while their three releases to date – The Spits, The Spits and The Spits – are decidedly short, they are all endlessly entertaining listens. Masked madman NOBUNNY is part man, part bunny and all trouble when he hops off the stage – well, in the words of Tucson Weekly, “if you’ve never been hugged by a horny, drunken Muppet, you should seek him out.” Opening tonight’s beer-soaked festivities and featuring members of rabble rousers BUNDLE OF FAGS, CHEAP THRILLS, DAILY VOID, FUNCTIONAL BLACKOUTS, ILL TONGUE and TRASH & HEAT, in the loving words of BRIAN COSTELLO, “MICKEY’s beautiful, ferocious scum-glam has all the rock-on catchiness of T. REX and MILK ‘N COOKIES without the ‘let’s pretend we’re bisexual and our balls haven’t dropped yet’ bullshit that often comes with the territory.”

FRI:May.21 (10:00pm; $15)
Dengue Fever (M80) // I Kong Kult (related:The Eternals, Reds and Blue) // Aleks and the Drummer
Discerning LA-based ensemble DENGUE FEVER embrace a cross-cultural ethos in fusing Asian pop with hazy psychedelic rock. Fronted by Cambodian singer CHHOLM NIMOL, the group are without peer and wholly unique. Brothers in wackiness, local quintet I KONG KULT play reggae and new wave spiked loungey jazz with the kind of swagger you may not expect from a band featuring members of THE ETERNALS and REDS AND BLUE. Local duo, and DAVE SITEK protégés, ALEKS AND THE DRUMMER open featuring their icy eastern European flavored organ and drum songs that the Chicago Reader calls “enchantingly gorgeous”.

SAT:May.22 (10:00pm; $8)
Screaming Females (Don Giovanni) // The Brokedowns (1-2-3-4 Go!Big ActionCassette Deck Media ConglomerateNo IdeaThick) // Heart Shaped Hate (Cassette Deck Media Conglomerate)
The New Jersey-based trio SCREAMING FEMALES swing by the Empty Bottle on their first-ever nation-wide tour and we are pleased to host these guitar-centric post-punk DIY loyalists. Playing tunes off their recently released compilation of tracks from their self-released 7″s, Singles out on Don Giovanni Records, these guys are a guaranteed good time. Joining SCREAMING FEMALES, all the way from Elgin, come fast, gravely, pop-inclined fist-pumpers THE BROKEDOWNS. Last years’ Half-Assed Chicago Compilation CD on Johann’s Face Records featured one heck of a turn from this quartet, the ridiculously great “Side B Song 5 on the 1st Doors Album” – expect a slew of songs full of abandon tonight. Joining them on their trek from the Northwest suburbs, HEART SHAPED HATE open with a thrashy, double bass drum twist of punk.

SUN:May.23 (9:00pm; $3)
Heavy Times (record release) (related:Cacaw) // Bitchin’ Bajas (related:Cave) // John Bellows (Hardscrabble AmateursMoniker) // Campfires (Leftist Nautical AntiquesMexican Summer)
HEAVY TIMES, featuring members of local favorite purveyors of face-melting minimalist punk played with terrifying and bone-shivering intensity CACAW, make their debut at the Bottle tonight. BITCHIN BAJAS, featuring members of Kraut-worshiping, mind-blowing trancerockers CAVE, also make their Bottle debut tonight and based on both of these bands members pedigrees, we’re expecting some frenetic experimentation from these new acts. One of our favorite acoustic noodlers JOHN BELLOWS, returns tonight and the always lovely bittersweet songsmiths CAMPFIRES open this eclectic set.

MON:May.24 (7:00pm; Free!)
Nick Jaina (HUSH) // Ami Saraiya

MON:May.24 (9:30pm; Free!)
G L E A M I N G (related:DRMWPN) // El Is The Sound Of Joy (Acid MarshmallowMoss Tapes) // Verma
Local nebulous collective G L E A M I N G, featuring members of the similarly capital-letter leaning DRMWPN, debut a shimmering, hypnotizing combination of jazz, minimalist, drone and rock and like-minded EL IS A SOUND OF JOY opens.

TUE:May.25 (9:30pm; $3 advance, $5)
Athens // The Names That Spell // The Gentlemen’s Guild
Named one of the “Best Local Bands” of last year by the Illinois Entertainer, ATHENS make their Empty Bottle debut with tracks off their newest say-that-five-times-fast release What Would We Wear Were We Werewolves, an album full of twangy, weird, funny alt-rock songs that are genuinely playful and theatrical without being over the top. It’s been said that eclectic and unpredictable local popsters THE NAMES THAT SPELL play “like Technicolor 45s in a rusty jukebox” and with the help of spaced out, jangly Chicago duo GENTLEMEN’S GUIDE, get things started here.

WED:May.26 (9:30pm; Free!)
HEAVEmedia presents
Tim Lowly Ensemble // Husband & Wife (Crossroads of America) // Kaspar Hauser (BackwardsmaskingRoostercowSpacesuitYour Cash)
HEAVEmedia, an “innovative site written by and for people who are interested in music that is original, vibrant, and challenging,” combines music coverage with intelligent, often humorous commentary on movies, television, books, popular culture and politics. Tonight they whack their stamp of approval on some local bands and celebrate the culture of the site. TIM LOWLY has been writing and performing music since the late 70s, both as a solo artist and backed by a varying group of remarkable musicians. Tonight he will be joined by some of that talent as the TIM LOWLY ENSEMBLE brings to life tracks from his most recent LP, Chasing Brother Angel. Bloomington, IN’s HUSBAND & WIFE head into the studio in June to record the follow up to last years’ Dark Dark Woods and we’re hoping for some new tunes from these fellas tonight. It’s been quite some time since we’ve heard new music from KASPAR HAUSER, their last record, The Sons, was praised for its “guitar-based pop music, with no grand pretensions or sonic gimmicks,” by Little Village, and we’re excited to hear what they’ve been up to since their last pass through the Empty Bottle doors. Who can say no to a midweek FREE show?

Birthday Suits (CrustaceanLearning CurveNice & Neat) // The Blind Shake (Learning Curve) // Bird Talk
Utterly bombastic and entirely unhinged, Minneapolis duo BIRTHDAY SUITS return to the Empty Bottle to play rough and rambunctious rock that is sure to leave you drenched in sweat. RCRD LBL has called their music “more high-kick inducing than VAN HALEN’s only #1 single, and in 90 seconds manages to create a more crushing riff than most bands can muster in twice the time.” Joining BIRTHDAY SUITS in the trek from Minneapolis are THE BLIND SHAKE. They’ve spent the spring working on a new LP to be released this summer on Learning Curve and we’re ready to hear what they mean when they offer to throw the listener “into a frenzied motorized caustic party fuck fest.” Local faves BIRD TALK open here performing songs from their most recent long player No Bird Left Behind, and they guarantee one heck of a good time to start the night off right.

FRI:May.28 (5:30pm; Free!)

FRI:May.28 (10:00pm; $5 (tickets available at the door)) Windy City Soul Club
The WINDY CITY SOUL CLUB boasts that the “best rare soul DJs in Chicago come together to create the best party this city has ever seen,” and if you’re inclined to think real DJs need a box full of vinyl, you’ll likely agree. Playing all original vinyl of the Northern Soul variety, Motown-style gems from labels that sometimes only had regional hits with ace dancing tunes as well as your favorite recognizable sing-along classics, if you’ve ever wanted to “shake a tail feather” tonight’s your night to get dapper and get down. We are no longer selling advance tickets to the WCSC night, so get here early if you want to get down.

SAT:May.29 (10:00pm; $8)
Yourself and The Air (Hands Organics) // Jookabox (Altin Village & MineAsthmatic KittyJoyful Noise) // YAWN
Curious locals YOURSELF AND THE AIR float and drift through indie rock gems that ooze charm and breezy hooks, and in the words of Daytrotter, they “produce this shimmery kind of guitar-driven rock and roll that feels personal, that feels as if it was written by the buddies you never knew you had, writing about some of these shared experiences and conversations that never become too dated.” JOOKABOX, the name of Indianapolis native DAVID ADAMSONS’ music project, has earned a reputation for a startlingly singular and eclectic songwriting strategy that samples a kind of primordial blues sound, children’s sidewalk-chalk rhymes and Appalachian folk. His latest effort, Ropechain, out now via Asthmatic Kitty Records, pinwheels kaleidoscopically through old-time spirituals, punk, chain-gang hymnals, deep house and club music hip-hop into a sound and style that is truly his own. Local quartet YAWN open with their enchanting breed of lush and inventive dream-pop.

Stephen Paul Smoker (Kilo) // Perfect Kiss // Loyal Divide
Close out your May with us tonight for a quirky and electro-leaning free Monday. Supporting his debut album on Kilo Records, Violent Sun / Violent Fun, STEPHEN PAUL SMOKER is the current project from Pilsen-based STEPHEN and tonight he is joined by a live band including members of HOLLOWS and ALL THINGS LUCID. PERFECT KISS describe their sound as “robot love songs,” and that’s actually sort of perfect – electro beats wearing their hearts on their sleeves. Local electro poppers LOYAL DIVIDE have been hard at work on their latest LP, their follow up to last year’s Labrador EP. RCRD LBL took quite a liking to the local psych quintet, praising the groups “layers of quirky electronic bits paired nicely with soft and admissible vocals.”
