Before spring officially arrived, Katie Owens met up with Max and Stef of Yoko and the Oh No's in Supera Park in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood. Max & Stef described overcoming the band's trepidation surrounding Yoko Ono, Max's evolution of onstage euphoria, and self expression through style.
Yoko and the Oh No's will re-release their self-titled debut album on Autumn Tone this summer. You can catch them at Schubas Tavern on Thursday, April 23 and at The Red Line Tap on Friday, April 24 for the International Pop Overthrow Fest.
CHIRP Radio’s Katie Owens stopped by The Observatory to catch up with Twin Peaks while on a break from recording their upcoming album. Twin Peaks gave us the scoop on a side project known as Twin Hits, self-imposed pressure, getting signed and they even assigned music homework.
Twin Peaks plays an already sold out show at Lincoln Hall on Tuesday, April 1 with The Orwells. You can also catch Twin Peaks at the Pitchfork Music Festival this July.
The Orwells are a rising punk group from Elmhurst. CHIRP’s Katie Owens sat down with them at the CHIRP studio where they talked about navigating the music industry as teenagers, tour pit stop eats, and how DIY spaces contributed to their success. The Orwells released their first album, Remember When, on Autumn Tone Records in 2012, and are one of the few Chicago bands playing at Lollapalooza 2013.
