Dark and murky hardcore ventures up from Austin, Texas and the nearby outpost of Springfield, Illinois. The line up delivers five sets in rapid-fire succession, so expect a compressed night of heavy and heady bands that weave between melodic, noisy and chiseled riffing. 

SUN. MAR. 26

@ Billiken Club | 9pm | $5
-Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith (Los Angeles, CA)

The Billiken Club presents modular synth-based artist Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, who counts the northwest region of Washington state as a spiritual influence on her sound. She employs toppling patterns atop an ambient, serene vibe and applies her studies in composition and sound engineering at the Berklee College of Music to stunning results. 

These are just some highlights. Check the sidebar for more!
