8-bit crEEps — Impossible — The Ham Council
8pm — $7 — 21+
8-bit crEEps make new sounds on old circuits. sych-Surf / Post-Punk. Sounds like Syd Barrett singing happy birthday to David Byrne. Inspired by a lone, nameless man. His dilated pupils are equal parts apathy and anxiety. The square-wave soundtrack was a worm in his brain. Mesmerized by a Centipede machine, the dance of the damned. His mustache unkempt, the dark circles under his eyes twitch as he scans his denim jacket's pocket for one more quarter. This ghoul lurked about Sinbad's Castle, Haunted Trails, and other dimly lit, south-side Chicago arcades of that time. These places left strange impressions on young minds. This is where you'll find those impressions. See you in the future.
Impossible! was formed in under the thrum of the Chicago El trains, two to five hundred years ago, depending on who you ask. Ranging from whimsical to funereal, from metal gruff to operatic, Impossible!’s music is a post-rock, electronic, and neo-classical riot, with a squeak of kazoo to finish. Armed with this smorgasbord of wild harvested and farm-to-table flavors, Impossible! is preparing to release their debut album, Invisible Trajectories spring 2016, a mix of wild homages and original songs.
The Ham Council plays music that deadens the moral sensibilities of a great democracy.
