Week of 12/25/2017: Ulla Straus + Wish Fulfillment + die Reihe + Michael DeMaio + Vehicle Blues

Thursday 12/28/2017 at Heavy Petting was… heavy. Ulla Straus woke our third eyes with a set that was both sick and jazz.

Wish Fulfillment continues to be everything you wished for and more.

die Reihe (Jack Callahan) rolls though Chicago on tour from NY.

Michael DeMaio brings closure to the evening and his stay in Chi by opening with a meditation in bells.

12/28/2017 @ Heavy Petting was organized by Ben Billington, Kyle Drouin. Visuals by Kyle Drouin (kd did).

Vehicle Blues is Gabe Holcombe of Lillerne Tapes. On this new year’s eve, I was mesmerized by Gabe’s sweet vocals and swirly guitar.

kd did again on visuals. Fran, ADT, Luke Shalla, and DJ Potions rang in the New Year along with Gabe @ Yolanda.

I missed most of NYE @ Yolanda though for Terryradio presents NYE with DJs Huerco S (proibito,quiet time,nyc), Pontiac Streator (terryradio,kc), Shortwave (terryradio,chi (live set)), Mintgreen (terryradio,chi), Opheliaxz (terryradio,chi). Organized by McCullough, Kelsey (Opheliaxz) + terryradio crew.

Around 3 a.m. went to check out the scene at Studio IC with Alex White, Cultergeist, Itsï, M. Levi (hybrid), sold, Thoom (hybrid). Organized by M. Levi, Dave Depew. As I arrived, Alex White (White Mystery, Miss Alex White and the Red Orchestra) was “flipping the script” with her DJ set! I recorded about an hour of M. Levi before calling it a year.
