El Socko: Betty Boop [Live @ Side Street]

Here’s one of the most recent videos I’ve filmed.

This is El Socko. They are a band who uses surrealist humor and performance pieces in between their songs. At this show, they used cardboard buildings, Godzilla costumes, pink ukuleles, Sin Cara (yes, as in the WWE luchador wrestler) masks, and sun costumes. It was a whirlwind of fun and trippiness.

Sloth Hands: Have a Great Summer [Live @ Side Street]

Meet Sloth Hands!

They are a folk punk trio from Illinois’s third largest city (that’s Rockford, for those scoring at home) playing at this year’s battle of the bands. This is them playing the title track from their Have a Great Summer album.

[#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.
