WHAT WE’VE BEEN JAMMING TO
ISSUE #53 / march 28, 2019
BJ The Chicago Kid
Chicago R&B native BJ The Chicago Kid brings a smooth and provocative beat and sensual lyrics about being close with a significant other regardless of who is watching. In a part of the chorus, “as we dance close, come up and kiss upon me slow, as we dance close,” BJ sings in a higher pitch, releasing passion and sensual tensions a couple may have as they dance close together. Hopefully this song is part of an album or ep, but we would love to hear more from BJ.
No shows announced, but hopefully we will see him in a local festival.
Chicano Batman / Caloncho
Háblame / Corazón de Roca
A combination made in Latinx heaven, the celebrated Mexican singer Caloncho has joined forces with Los Angeles’ resident genre benders Chicano Batman for two glorious tunes that celebrate their roots while bridging into the new territory in which both groups reside.
Caloncho is not making an appearance in Chicago soon but Chicano Batman is opening for Vampire Weekend at Northerly Island on June 16th. Tix are $26.50 and up.
A burst of piano chords, drum beats, and what sounds like an 80s pop beat, Tame Impala releases new song, Patience, four years after their last album Currents. Hopefully we will hear more progressive/80s pop music while fans wait for a new album release.
Tame Impala will be at Lolla this year. No word on what date they’re playing. GA 4-day passes are selling fast!
She’s hitting The Riv on May 3rd and girl SOLD THAT SHIT OUT!
Cobra Lounge is hosting them on June 8th, opening for Aaron West. Tix are $19.50.
It doesn’t appear they are touring anytime soon.
She is bringing her show to Lincoln Hall on May 22nd. Tix are $16 ($18 doors).
They are only hitting New York and L.A. before bouncing back to the U.K.
About to go on a West Coast run it doesn’t look like they are hitting Chicago soon.
The Range is currently not on tour.
No tour dates are scheduled at the moment.
I’m tired of your repeating story
Fast, in your face, and all in screaming Japanese, Otoboke Beaver is a punk rock revelation. Their new record ITEKOMA HITS is coming April 26th and it’s gonna rock your pants off.
Sadly, they have no Chicago stops on their current tour.
