Check this out: Rodeo

Posted by Frank

If you visit these parts often you're probably also familiar with one of our fellow purveyors of Chicago music information, the excellent Loud Loop Press. You might also know that our pal Richard Giraldi is at the helm of that site, but did you know he has a band? They're called Rodeo, they're a three-piece and they play heavy, sometimes psychedelic rock that Richard describes as having a "Jesus Lizard-meets-the Pixies" vibe. I have been playing the band's debut EP Sarcastic Summer and I concur with that description, especially if you think about those bands at their rawest. Not really metal, but certainly something you can thrash around and release some pent up frustration to. And we could all use some healthy release via incredibly loud rock and roll sounds now and then, don't you think? You can listen to the EP and name your price for a download on Bandcamp.

Rodeo will be playing at Abbey Pub tonight, February 17th, with the very charmingly named The Fuck You Kiss My Asses, POWERS and Brutal Beatings. 8 p.m., 21 and over, $8 advance/$10 at door. Head on over and rock out. More info here.
