Future Generations @ Beat Kitchen 7/26

Future Generations has been busy these past few years. After the July 2016 release of their debut album, the Brooklyn quintet has been on the road and racking up over a million Spotify plays on multiple songs from their album.

The band has been compared to the likes of MGMT and Passion Pit, and is known for their catchy hooks and rich electronic production.

In support of their very recent release, Double Vanity, BRONCHO stopped by for not one, but two Chicago performances this past weekend.  The band played Wicker Park Green Festival Saturday evening, but I checked out their set the previous night at Beat Kitchen.

BRONCHO’s set that night featured ear-splitting, highly distorted guitars, fast paced riffs, and a whole lot of energy bubbling over.  They may have been hard to photograph due to low red/blue lighting, but their energy was infectious and had concert goers headbanging throughout the set.  Hopefully those at the festival the following night enjoyed them just as much as those at Beat Kitchen!


Fruit Bats @ Beat Kitchen 6/2

Chicago’s Eric D. Johnson is coming to Beat Kitchen as Fruit Bats to promote his 6th studio album, Absolute Loser. Having taken some time off, this is his first release as Fruit Bats since 2011.  Still grounded in pop, this album features layers upon layers of guitars as well as the occasional banjo, giving the album a very Americana feel.  Check out his first single from the album below and get your tickets to Thursday’s show here.

Bring your moms to Beat Kitchen for Alberta Cross!

After bassist Terry Wolfers left the band, singer-guitarist Petter Ericson Stakee decided to continue on with Alberta Cross as a solo project.  Alberta Cross will be coming to Beat Kitchen this Mother’s Day night in support of his recent,
self-titled album.

Alberta Cross takes listeners on a journey and is meant to be listened to as a whole piece of art.  Although originally from Sweden, Stakee currently resides in Brooklyn where he finds inspiration jamming with friends around the city.

Sky White Tiger and Grand Canyon will be opening for Stakee on Sunday night.  Get your tickets here.


I hate the thought of you missing out…

Seriously, I do hate the thought of you missing out on this show considering it was three solid hours of rock!

I had never been to Beat Kitchen before, but I had heard great things.  When I arrived on Saturday night, however, I quickly realized that my friends had undersold it.  Holy shit, this place is so awesome!  Nice beer selection, great ambience, food which I didn’t try but was probably delicious, and the perfect little venue in the back room.  So I grabbed a beer and went to wait for Burndoubt.
