Sparkle Carcass

Chicago dive bar country meets midwest punk grit meets the energy at a party when someone brings out a box of bottle rockets. That’s Sparkle Carcass. 

Formed in 2017 around songwriter Cody Palmer, Sparkle Carcass pulls from all the best music to come out of Texas, California, and the Midwest to give you drinkin’ songs, dancin’ songs, and songs that make you wanna stay a while. Most importantly, each song delivers on the honest storytelling that makes country music worth listening to. 

Frontman Cody Palmer is a storyteller through and through, and boy does he have stories. He’s been to nearly every state twice, jumped a car over 12 school busses, and was one sneeze away from losing his legs…though he probably made one of those up.

They don’t make ‘em like Cody outside of Southern Indiana, but with a dozen years steeped in the Chicago music scene, Palmer comes to the stage with an energy that’s a little down home, a little downtown. His songs blend the “don’t bore us, get to the chorus” sensibilities of pop songwriting with traditional country boogie and shake. Whaddya get? Music that tripped and fell somewhere between Garth Brooks and the Space Jam soundtrack. 

You’ve seen Palmer’s ostrich cowboy boots stepping onto iconic Chicago stages at Carol’s Pub and The Hideout, and you’ve probably seen him behind the turntables at your favorite mezcal bar. No matter the venue, a Sparkle Carcass show is like a good night out: exciting, surprising, and a damn good time. “
