The Band CAMINO
February 12 | 7:30 pm @ Lincoln Hall
A rock-pop crossover group from the heartbreak town of Memphis, The Band CAMINO is making huge waves in the industry this year as they travel the United States with opener Hardcastle for their Love of the Game tour. Having only been on the music scene for a little over three years, the band has skyrocketed into stardom, earning coveted spots on celebrity Spotify playlists and catching the attention of Paste, Billboard, and PopCrush editors. Their totally sold-out show at Lincoln Hall next month is bound to showcase lead singer Jeffery Jordan’s incredible vocal range, as well as establish their synth-infused rock n’ roll platform for future albums to come.

February 15 | 9:00 pm @ Schubas Tavern
The rock revivalist sound that emanates from any stage Warbly Jets plays is about to fill up Schubas Tavern next month for a banger of a show with Porcupine and Moonwalks. Their nostalgic vibe originated in Los Angeles and gives listeners the feeling of being in a ’90s punk music video shot in fisheye. Every song on their latest EP Propaganda inspires revolution by delivering messages of activism that slip through the notes. The Warbly Jets is taking their instruments on the road for a tour through the United States this year, determined to rock the city during their pitstop in Chicago. Buy tickets here.
Listen to: Alive
February 19 | 7:00 pm @ Lincoln Hall
Current Joys hasn’t been on the music scene for more than five years, and yet, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Nicholas Rattigan has released six unique albums each littered with introspective lyrics. Pair that with his happy-go-lucky, synth-indie sound and you’ve got a one-man band that can heal hearts and cure loneliness. Listening to Current Joys is like snuggling up with your puppy and a hot cup of tea on a rainy Sunday morning, or driving with the windows down along a dirt road in the summertime with your best friends. You can’t help but feel content, happy, and at peace when Rattigan starts to play, and we’re sure you’ll have similar feelings when he graces the stage at Lincoln Hall with Gap Girls next month. Buy tickets here.

February 25 | 8:00 pm @ Schubas Tavern
A Rolling Stone-featured blues artist is headed to Schubas Tavern next month and bringing her dark, grassroots melodies (and her French) with her. The name on everyone’s lips is Adia Victoria, and she’s out to reclaim the blues on The Dope Queen tour around the United States. This Nashville-based rising star has a haunting sound like you’ve never heard before, reminiscent of Kurt Cobain and equally enthralling. As she takes the Schubas stage with a TBD opener artist next month, remember to bring with you a solemn attitude, respectful silence, and a heart full of appreciation for the good ol’ American blues. Buy tickets here.
