PRF BBQ 2015 June 17 – June 21

PRF KtS has been added to play the annual PRFBBQ in Chicago this month.  This is something we are ecstatic about. Not only do we get to play with bands again that we’ve met over the past few years touring, we also get to hear an abundance of new music!

Taken from the website, here’s a bit of info:

5 days, 6 venues, 50 some odd bands. Food and drink to satiate the most gluttonous kings and queens. Laughter, hugs, joy, awesome time with friends, new and old, all the regular PRF BBQ jam.

We can’t thank them enough for the opportunity to host and play on five separate nights throughout April!!!  Thank you to everyone that came out to the shows! We also want to thank all the bands that played, knowing that everyone has hectic lives of their own, we’re thankful that each band took time out of their busy schedules to be a part of this(especially on a Wednesday night).  Hopefully we can do this again in the near future!

 

 

We have a few more shows lined up for May and June:

KtS “Artist in Residence” at The SGH Revival every Wednesday in April!!!

 

Residence Line-Up

Knife the Symphony is hosting five nights of punk, rock, noise, folk, and metal every Wednesday night in April at The Southgate House Revival Lounge. All shows are FREE. (See nightly lineup information below).

“locating their nucleus in ground between the late ’80s Dischord and Touch & Go labels, [Knife The Symphony’s] banging, whirling, ridiculously rhythmic post-punk attack is a wonder, especially given the generous cool down periods of sinister slowcore quiet they interject – these guys are inhuman” – BIG TAKEOVER MAGAZINE #65

Bring your earplugs.
