[#TBT] The Shakes & Rumbles: This Ain’t What I Am (Live @ Side Street 2014)

#TBT time, everybody!

Here’s noise punk duo The Shakes & Rumbles coming from Lake Zurich, IL to play at the 2014 Battle of the Bands. This was my first time seeing them live and they were certainly a fun live act.

[#TBT] Lower Automation @ Side Street

Welcome to another Throwback Thursday installment!

I actually made these videos only a few months before starting an Autumn Peal blog. This trio is Lower Automation. They’re a mathcore band from Wheaton, IL. I’ve known Derek (lead singer/guitarist) for years with his old band Counterfeit I back when I was more active in the music scene. It was great seeing this new music with this current project.

mewithoutYou: February 1878 [Live @ Durty Nellies]

Here’s some more mewithoutYou footage for you from that surprise birthday present I got. This is their song February 1878 which one of their “sequel songs” as I sometimes call them. Much like “Four Word Letter Pt. II”, “Nice and Blue Pt. II”, or “Bullet to Binary Pt. II”, they followed it up with something that uses some of the melodies from their most famous song “January 1979” (which they played right before this song on this setlist). IT’s from their Ten Stories album.

Enjoy!

[#TBT] The Skies Revolt: Scattered Giants @ Cornerstone Festival 2011

Here’s my first Throwback Thursday post. I’m taking you back to 2011 in Bushnell, Illinois. There used to be this one festival called Cornerstone down in Central Illinois that had a ton of great bands, movies, and activities there. However, it stopped in 2012. RIP Cornerstone. Here’s one of the first videos I took when I was there in 2011 when I saw The Skies Revolt. This was the last song on this set when they played the Solace stage.
