FINOM (fka Ohmme) (10:40 PM)

There’s an obvious chemistry emanating throughout Finom’s (formerly known as Ohmme) music that’s so tangible it can only come from a decades-spanning friendship. Songwriters Sima Cunnningham and Macie Stewart formed their unbreakable bond performing throughout the fringes of Chicago’s many interlocking communities, collaborating with titans from the city’s indie rock, hip-hop, and improvised worlds. But together they’ve stretched the boundaries of what guitar music can do. Finom formed as an outlet for Cunningham and Stewart to explore an unconventional approach to their instruments. “That’s the whole genesis of the band: us walking up to our guitars and saying, ‘how can we make this noisemaker do something different?'”

MMEADOWS (9:45 PM)

Longtime collaborators Kristin Slipp and Cole Kamen-Green come together as a duo in mmeadows. The band’s distinct sound is informed by their deep musical backgrounds: Kristin is a current member of Dirty Projectors, while Cole has worked directly with Beyoncé on two albums, ‘Beyoncé’ and ‘Four,’ Lorde on ‘Melodrama’ and ‘Solar Power,’ as well as Laurie Anderson and Meshell Ndegeocello.

GROCER (9:00 PM)

Featuring three distinct vocalists, Grocer is a band that grooves, but never quite settles; a group that loves a good melody, yet remains moments away from chaos. Described as “if The Pixies wrote a musical”, or “Sonic Youth with a sweet tooth” their on-stage chemistry is undeniable.
