Elliot Gitter is the lead guitarist, vocalist and principal songwriter for Teleporter, who opens for ADT at CHIRP Night at the Whistler this Wednesday, April 25 at 8 pm.

Gitter will perform solo at the Whistler, focusing mostly on new material. We caught up with him to find out what he has in store for the Whistler audience.

Q : How long has Teleporter been together?

A: Nick and I started playing together with Jeremy in 2012 and recorded The Martian Chronicles in 2013 with engineer Barrett Guzaldo. At the time, I was living in a house in Chicago with several of my friends. I recorded the demos at my home studio, using an eight-track analog console. We would sample a bunch of sounds and create music.  After we completed the sessions, Barrett went on to create Treehouse Records with Matt Gieser.

Mike Nikolich writesYFEE Plans Deeply Personal Performance at CHIRP Night at The Whistler

The Whistler audience is in for a treat March 28, when YFEE takes the stage at CHIRP Night at the Whistler. Sharing the stage with experimental noise-rockers Mermaid N.V., the Chicago hip-hop/electronic artist will spin tales of relationships, intrigue, sci-fi, astronomy and maybe a conspiracy theory or two.

“I’ve been singing and writing lyrics and poetry since I was seven years old,” YFEE says. “I love to play with meanings and give room in my lyrics for things to mean more than one thing at the same time.”

A graduate of Northwestern, YFEE studied Film and Astrophysics. Her passion for both subjects is evident in her videos and lyrics, and YFEE isn’t afraid to wear her emotions on her sleeve, either.

“I always want my songs to come from a deep, emotional place,” YFEE says. “I try to express feelings that are very personal and universal to all human beings.”

Mike Nikolich writesJen Dot Can’t Wait to Take the Stage at CHIRP Night at the Whistler

by Mike Nikolich

Break-ups are never easy, and Jen Dot claims she’s still not over the break-up of Swimsuit Addition, a popular Chicago band that was considered one of our city’s rising stars as recently as 2016.

“It broke my heart when Swimsuit Addition dissolved,” Dot says. “I put my heart and soul into that band and I wondered if I ever could recapture the magic.”

Fortunately for us, Dot is resilient, as evidenced by the release of Can’t Wait, a fine new recording by her latest band, beastii. While she still smarts from the pain of the dissolution of Swimsuit Addition, Dot clearly has moved on, calling her new album “Some of the best work of my career.”

beastii and Sex No Babies are the featured acts at the January 24 edition of CHIRP Night at the Whistler. The show starts at 8:30 pm, and admission to free to anyone 21 years or older.

Karin Fjellman writesTonight! CHIRP Night at the Whistler with Sunglasses and Your Feets Too Big

It’s time for another CHIRP Night at the Whistler! It’s a great excuse to hear new local music and sample a cocktail by drink masters like Paul McGee, recently named Best Mixologist by the Chicago Reader.

Let Sunglasses sway you into an experimental pop daydream, and then dance it out with the synth-driven low-fi beats of Your Feets Too Big.

A percentage of bar sales benefit CHIRP Radio. CHIRP DJs will also be on-hand to spin between sets, plus you can enter to win prizes in the CHIRP raffle. This show promises to be the perfect soundtrack to one of our beautiful Chicago summer nights, so don’t miss it!
