We are extremely excited to announce MEND will be coming to our stage, with their beautiful LED triangles in tow that they constructed with Lobo Homen. Check out the banner on their fb page for a glimpse of their triangles and video:


MEND is: The partnership between Kassi Cork, pianist / composer and Max Glascott, technological impresario, DJ and experimental noisemaker.

MEND creates a cohesive mass of music that explores and redefines genre clichés within the bounds of any given track.

Influences range from hip-hop to industrial with nods to dub-step, acid, electro, classical and beyond.

St Griselda

Opening for MEND, St. Griselda will be performing their very first live show in Chicago! A studio project for over 3 years, now the adventure is coming to the stage:

St. Griselda creates dark, melodic electronic music.

We pull ideas from many genres, including circus, dance, steampunk, industrial, trip-hop, classical, and especially musical theater. Our goal is to create a mini-story with each song, so we start with a character and story and build the soundscape around them.
