Dead Rider: “Blank Screen”
There’s a great show flying in under the radar tonight at the Kitty Cat Klub. Chicago based Dead Rider will headline and local powerhouses STNNNG and Seawhores will support. If you aren’t familiar with Dead Rider, it is made up of former U.S. Maple guitarist Todd Rittmann, Matt Espy, as well as Thymme Jones and Andrea Faught of Cheer Accident. They produce noisy art rock that combines barbed shards of guitar virtuosity with glitch keyboards and irregularly paced rhythms. With the Seawhores experimental noise and STNNNG’s dexterous post punk/noise rock, the whole lineup is really a match-made-in-art-rock-heaven. You can check out a tune from Dead Rider’s recent record Chills on Grass (Drag City) below as well as a whole gang of our prior STNNNG and Seawhores coverage. See you at the show!
