8pm — $10 — 21+
Named after Silverchair's song «The Lever», the original 4-piece rock band of twenty-somethings have taken things into their own hands. Self-releasing their debut album «Hover Bored» in May of 2015, they've set out to share their music in any way possible. zZounds said «With influences like Silverchair, Nirvana and Speedy Ortiz, the fuzzy guitars, slacker attitude, and loud/quiet/loud dynamics permeate throughout their catalog. But pigeonholing Lever as grunge revivalists doesn’t give the full picture — they’ve taken the sound of their heroes into modern times, blending it with contemporary influences from Wavves to Metric.» Lever has toured all over the United States performing everywhere from tattoo shops in Billings, Montana to the legendary Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood, California. Lever has shared the stage with national artists such as Barb Wire Dolls, Summer Cannibals, Doll Skin, Thunderpussy, Maszer, Darling Parade, City of the Weak, and Stitched Up Heart. They continue to play all over Chicago at venues such as the Metro, Double Door, Subterranean, Beat Kitchen, Bottom Lounge and Schubas. Even community colleges and offices are a favorite of theirs to perform at (even though they get kicked out for being too darn loud). A follow up EP is expected by Summer 2017. Be on the lookout for a Lever show near you.
