We close out our 2015 season with an eclectic 3 band bill!!

NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES PERMITTED

Names Divine (est. 2009) are obsessed with problem solving, making connections, unlikely balances and resonances that feel strong. They do not know why the music sounds this way. It is the only way it can sound. Perhaps it is because of the members' varied life-experiences and interests. Names Divine is a mess of empathy attempting untangle itself. You could also think of it as Americana or ominously hovering around it.

They will perform songs from their forthcoming album THAT, plus more. Lots of words and some vocal harmonies can be expected. Instrumentation may include but is not limited to guitar, bass, drums, electric violin, clarinet, banjo, and effects.

Female Basic is 3 females (Anna Phalen, Bekah Miller, and Rachel Landrum) who sing harmonies and accompanied by the ukelele, banjo, and guitar.

Drummer/ Bandleader Jimmy Bennington recently celebrated 25 years in the music field, including long residences in Texas and the West Coast, with a decade of that time spent in Chicago. Mentored by late Coltrane drummer Elvin Jones, Bennington carries on the tradition of ever evolving Jazz and Improvisation. His latest recording, 'Exotic Coda' on New York's CIMP label was included in Down Beat Magazine's 'Best Albums of 2015'.
