More about the Bands after the jump!
UNICYCLE LOVES YOU - www.myspace.com/unicycle
"When local sunshine popsters Unicycle Loves You appeared on the Chicago scene nine months ago, they seemed fully formed, as if they'd stepped out of some secret Frankenstein indie-pop factory. At their first show in November of last year, the irrepressibly ebullient quintet arrived with an easy onstage chemistry and a stable of perfectly appointed pop songs, replete with clarion harmonies and '60s-style innocence. The lighthearted sound that garnered them immediate praise in the blogosphere has wisely retained its original whimsy with the help of tambourines and clap-alongs, while steadily increasing in complexity and sophistication."

THE SAFES - www.myspace.com/thesafesmusic
"Chicago power-pop band-- centered around a trio of multi-instrumentalist brothers-- craft well-executed songs. "Phone Book Full of Phonies" takes glam-stomp's boogie and strips out all the excess weight to make it run faster, "Deception" condenses the limber debauchery of early 70s Rolling Stones into 1:47, and "Bliss This Instance" takes the aforementioned Kinks-circa-'66 vibe to a raucous, horn-filled conclusion." - PITCHFORK
THE PINKS - www.myspace.com/thepinksrock
"Take a heapin' helpin' of good ol' 60s garage pop from the likes of The Kinks, The Shirelles, and The Yardbirds, then add a glop of pop punk from Blondie, Ramones and The Clash, and stir it up with Link Ray's surf guitar and you've got a darn good garage band. And we were lucky enough to get them to open the show! Don't miss the Pinks!"
