Mutts and Hemmingbirds at Beat Kitchen Fri. Sept 24

The Hemmingbirds are fronted by Yoo Soo who wrote and recorded all of the songs on the Hemmingbirds incredible debut Death Wave (my REVIEW). The band sounded great and the guitar really popped live. I spoke with Yoo Soo afterward and he said they have only played out a handful of times. It sure didn't seem like they had played only 4 or 5 times together. See them live, it's a great experience. The album link below is a name your own price download. So if you do download it for FREE , please post the link wherever you can. Help spread the word about the inexhaustible great indie music here in Chicago.

Thanks for the invite from Mike Maimone who fronts the indescribable Mutts low end force. Plenty of swing an a bit of soul and tons of conviction mark Mutts shows.Every Mutts show I have seen has a different twist. In this show the guys welcomed Yoo Soo from the Hemmingbirs to play violin amidst the growl and prowl of Mutts bottom end rumble. It was interesting dichotomy to have the higher end of the violin in that setting. Of course the violin was played marvelously by Yoo Soo. The Mutts were supporting the release of their great ep The Tells of Parallels (My review HERE). Mike and the guys did a cover of "Little Wing" (Hendrix) to a crowd that was very amped. Great to talk to Mike and the guys afterward. Please download the album below for FREE if you haven't already.
