About the Event
Four bands, one night! Join us at Ballydoyle for a Quadruple Bill feat. Thrift Store Halo!
Inspired by Chicago power poppers and British Invasion bands, The Spindles have released a fine debut that oozes with hints of The Hollies, The Raspberries and a few actual Elvis Brothers.
THRIFT STORE HALO
One of Chicago's Finest, Hook-Heavy Power-Pop/Rock Bands. Formed 1994.
Formed in 2017 when George T. Drag (Butterflies, Honda Pavarotti) joined up with the Cooled Out Babies (Finn Swingley, Brian Daley, Joe Daley). The Embryos immediately made the Chicago music scene more catchy, jangle-y, and more rocking. The band's soon to be released E.P., Open the Kimono, melds the 12 string styling of The Church and The Byrds with 70s styled power pop like Big Star and the Soft Boys. With standout tracks like Wake Up Screaming and Hostages of the Orb as well as a fantastic cover of Circleville originally written by the talented local songwriter Markus Ello - the music of The Embryos appeals to fans of classic, catchy, pop-rock.
PHIL YATES AND THE AFFILIATES
Phil Yates is a Chicago based singer-songwriter who describes his sound as “too folky for the rockers and too rocky for the folkers,” Phil blends (at least what he thinks are) clever lyrics with melodies full of hooks.
