Peach Pit – Being So Normal

Peach Pit was brought to life in 2016 with the release of their now coveted debut EP, “Sweet F.A” (F.A. meaning “fuck all”, after lead singer Neil Smith’s love for the lazy life). Originating in Vancouver, Canada, the group formed when high school pals, Smith and Chris Vanderkooy, decided to collaborate on a musical project. Peter Wilton and Mikey Pascuzzi joined them on bass and drums creating their “chewed bubblegum pop” sound.

The group melds teenage angst with bummer summer vibes that have them sounding somewhere between Mac Demarco and Homeshake. With their laid back sound and lush lead vocals, their songs tell stories of backstabbing best friends and dying end of summer romances.

The group quickly developed a dedicated local fan base through their energetic live shows. In February 2017, a YouTube channel sent their self-titled track, “Peach Pit” viral after discovering it on their Bandcamp. The group quickly started to amass an international following and booking requests to play worldwide.

Peach Pit’s quirky online posts and campy Ned Flanders-esque uniforms have ignited a highly engaged fanbase. They’re now gearing up to release their debut LP, “Being So Normal”, on legendary indie record label Kingfisher Bluez in September 2017, after which they’ll hit the road, touring the U.S. and Canada including a Bumbershoot festival date, with a European tour in early 2018.

Peach Pit has quickly become the next big indie act to watch out for in the Pacific Northwest.

“Peach Pit display a knack for distilling ennui, angst, and disappointment into wistful, melodic indie pop” ~The Georgia Straight

“A delectably smooth brand of indie pop complete with hushed vocals and Steely Dan-indebted guitar runs.” ~Exclaim!

The Evictions New Album!

The Evictions are a fresh band out of Chicago with members from The Last Vegas, Black Actress, & The Lucks. Their front man, Johnny, also makes some kickass guitar pedals at Daredevil pedals. They’re a three piece garage rock outfit with blazing riffs and scream-a-long chorus hooks; seen sharing bills with Cheetah Chrome and the Sonics.

The Evictions Chicago

The guys just put out a new album and it’s loud, fast, & punk. Ehhh I kinda hesitate to call it punk, but it doesn’t really matter what you want to call it… It’s a rager and some good ass rock n roll! It’s got that raunch to it – a growl out of the vocals that reminds me of The Bronx and a pummeling straight forward backbeat that’s similar to The Lillingtons. Check out their self titled below.

The Evictions

If you missed their album release with Giuda, MAMA, & Stickfight at Chop Shop, then give them a follow on their  Facebook page to find out about their next show!

Red Francis, Flying Potion, & Circleface @ The Burlington – 9/8/17

Red Francis / Flying Potion / Circleface @ The Burlington - 9/8/17

Here we go. All the boys are back for a night of shenanigans at The Burlington Chicago. Red Francis, Circleface, and Flying Potion are all gonna be there. Expect some cooter bong rips and some first class fun. No poor people allowed! Tonight’s gonna be a good night, tonight’s gonna be a good good ni-i-ight. HAHA Black Eyed Peas right? Sooo funny.

Check out the Circleface band boys getting footloose! Hang loose Circleface.


A band which began with two cousins who wanted to take a light-hearted, studious approach to the Chicago punk-rock scene. Scrutinizing the standards of song structure, time, and rounding it out with a third family member on drums… Circleface’s only goal is to deliver a nutritional, well-balanced breakfast.


Red Francis is a rock n’ roll band based out of Chicago, IL. Between 2010 to 2012, Red Francis frontman, Michael Glader wrote, recorded, and released 2 albums, What’s Left of my Hands & When on High. Michael was joined by long-time friends Alex Fishback (Drums) and Brett Fishback (Bass) in 2014 to create the band’s self-titled third album. Immediately after the release, they toured the midwest, west coast, as well as the south. Since then the trio has not slowed down.


Flying Potion began in late 2015, shortly after Jac Cornelius moved from Minneapolis to Chicago. Having spent the previous few years learning to play pedal steel in various country bands, he sought to use the instrument in a different setting and sound. The resonance and layering of sounds that is characteristic of the instrument lend themselves well to the psychedelic rock that Flying Potion makes. His brother (and drummer) Joel, filled up the remaining open positions with friends Ross Tasch (bass) and eventually Drew Suarez (guitar). In late 2017, Flying Potion is planning to release their debut full-length album.

RSVP to Red Francis / Flying Potion / Circleface at The Burlington and stay tuned to We Are The Television for all your basic needs!

Dirt Tusk releases new music video – “Just Like Me” – 9.1.17

Dirt Tusk releases a brand new music video for a new song, ” Just Like Me”. Off the upcoming album “Rotten”.

Dirt Tusk

Dirt Tusk is a two-man, heavy as fuck, ripper of a band… musically and in real life because that is exactly what happens in their new video.

“Just Like Me” is stoner rock jammer shot in the style of a slasher film, with good reason… that is what it is! Creepy demon mother fucker taking prisoners, eating them for dinner. Rob Valdez (guitarist of Guerilla and The Hotones) shot and edited this video. Barrett Guzaldo (engineer at Treehouse Records) recorded the song which will be on their upcoming album “Rotten”.

Finally, here it is …

Dirt Tusk – Just Like Me

Red Francis is currently working on their 4th album which is expected to come out late in 2017.

“The Artist that’s changing the indie pop game, the five-track compilation is vaguely reminiscent of a trippy, hallucinogen-fueled daydream and tinged with ’70s influences and swaying summer campfire sessions” – NYLON
“On new single “Better All the Time,” the New York native provides an electric three-minute trip into a spaced out fantasy, with a trippy soundscape full of glam rock and psych-pop influences” – SPIN
“Marrying the spaciness of Electric Light Orchestra’s ‘Strange Magic’ and the sunniness of The Beatles’ ‘Getting Better,’ “Better All The Time” by Zuli is a dazzling piece of pop” – The Deli

Strange Foliage

So here is some music from the bands to start rocking before the show.

Red Francis – Fuckin’ Shit

Zuli – Supernatural Voodoo EP

Strange Foliage – See Is Red
