¡Estación Brutalisima Regresa!
The Comfort Station of Logan Square is proud to announce the 2018 edition of Estación Brutalisima, a three-night showcase of Chicago's raw and loud, heavy and fast Latinx rock scene. In contrast to the hush and intimate music series that Comfort Station is known for, Estación Brutalisima will use and distort the acoustic tranquility of our venue, and our lawn, to bring you face-melting, mosh-dancing, head-banging jams from three of the city's gems of the local music circuit.
ERZULIE, on Friday May the 11th, 2018
Erzulie (pronounced ah-zih-lee) is a Chicago jazz metal band inspired by Haitian Vodou, Panamanian folklore, and urban grit. A unique blend of thrash metal, indie rock, and Latin jazz, this band creates hypnotically abrasive music that captures audiences.
THE FERAL GHOSTS, on Saturday May the 12th, 2018
The Feral Ghosts formed in the winter of 2014 emerging from Chicago's late night scene. Originally a five-piece band The more recent quartet consists of Alex on the guitar, Tuko on the bass, Robert on the drums, and Annu behind the mic. If Motörhead and Joy Division hooked up after the Queens of the Stone Age show in ‘98, The Feral Ghosts would be their rebellious, sultry love child. The subtle influences of these bands inspire the sound that has become the unique characteristics of the TFG heavy tracks, blended with raw emotion.
AVANTIST, on Sunday May the 13th, 2018
AVANTIST BY DEFINITION...
is to be an Avant Gardist. Four Hispanic brothers from Chicago churn out post-rock music that aptly fits this term.
The brothers in Avantist produce art that is eclectic, hard-hitting, infectious, comical, and at times unpredictable. With little prior musical experience, the brothers have drawn inspiration from everything in their lives—films, brotherly fracas, and the sound of their father's classically trained Mariachi voice. The result is that Avantist uniquely transcends the singular sub-genre of post-rock, while remaining relevant and entertaining.
This event is part of Force and Motion, a month-long program during May, which jas the purpose of exploring performance, in all it's avenues and platmforms, as an art in and of itself. Force and Motion aims to re-imagine and contextualize how how bodies, sounds and vision occupy our space.
Estación Brutalisima is curated by David Musgrave and Nando Espinosa Herrera, Comfort Station programmers.
This event is free and all-ages. Donations are encouraged, which go to performers in their entirety.
No BYOB. Please and thank you.
