Glad Rags w/ Living Thing

Saturday, November 06
Show | 9:30pm // Doors | 9:30pm
Glad Rags celebrates the release of their much anticipated debut LP 'ALL OF THEM' via Sinkhole Sounds.

The record is three years in the making and features fourteen different local artists. The six core members write and arrange collaboratively to create an original blend of art rock, disco, new wave, experimental jazz, and psychedelic pop.

ALL OF THEM navigates cancel culture, gendered violence in the art scene, and community responses to healing. The narrative hops between various perspectives to emphasize the ripple effects unchecked harm has on people and those who love them. Soaring harmonies soften the blow, and a deep love and hopefulness for humanity are echoed by those who helped mold this art pop concept album over the last three years.

The debut LP from the Chicago collective playfully tip-toes along the evolutionary lineage of the analog to digital soundscape - the early ‘80s globalization of disco, lounge pop of the ‘90s, and soulful mid ‘70s ballads are threaded together through delicately woven arrangements. Glad Rags embroiders disparate influences into a cohesive art pop mélange that celebrates the depth of human emotions and the robust potential of community care.

Living Thing Is this solo project of Chicago-based songwriter Danielle Strautmanis. Their debut EP “Everything Is Green” is an introspective and uplifting piece that carried her through her darkest days. It is a exploration of self-care through the elements of nature, vivid imagery and soulful melodies. Danielle encourages all listeners to utilize powerful optimism as a guide through life‘s turbulence.
