8pm - $10 - 21+
Miss Remember is a rock band that rocks from Chicago. Formed by Jim Tashjian (gtr, vox), Peter Tashjian (drms), Leslie Beukelman (vox) and Martin Stonikas (bass) when the four were students at the Chicago College of Performing Arts, the members all continue to be active in various bands in various circles of the Chicago music scene (District 97, Hood Smoke, Hey Champ, Goran Ivanovic Trio, Brite Lite, Davy Knowles, Luna, BD and the jackrabbits, Timetables etc…) As a band, they combine sounds from their rock roots with their love of diverse musics from around the city, the country and the world. Dissonant harmony and a unique rhythmic concept are layered with delicate, simplistic melodies. They are children of the 90's, who grew up in the midwest, just striving to write good songs. Miss Remember released their first full length record on the Ears&Eyes label January 13, 2017.
Elle Casazza is many things, but she isn’t “retro.” Sure her music evokes a bygone era, when jazz and soul reigned supreme; granted, her voice commands attention in a way few contemporary singers can claim. But “retro” implies she’s cashing in on a trend, and one listen to her new album “Proof” proves that Elle Casazza is nothing if not authentic. Since 2011 Elle has performed all over Chicago, either solo or with her five piece band. In 2013 she released her first EP “For Your Pleasure.” which has played on numerous radio stations. In 2015 she released three singles: Witness,Rainy Days and Soft & Low. With her latest full album release “Proof,” Elle hopes to “bring authenticity by bringing the live band back to pop music.”
