This looks like a high-energy set. Check out the video below.
Thursday at Empty Bottle is a blistering lineup …
Crocodiles, AJ Davila and Chicago’s own The Bingers play the Bottle March 2.
Charles Moothart draws his influences from heavy, hard rock from the late ’60s and early ’70s. as well as classic punk

Meatbodies is the project of Chad Ubovich, a frequent collaborator with fellow L.A. garage rocker and house favorite (here at ATYP) Ty Segall.
On Alice, Meatbodies’ latest album, Ubovich pulls out some great psych-rock garage tunes paired with a sludgy stoner vibe. Fans of Segall will like this new one from his buddy Ubovich.
Like a good portion of Segall’s work, Meatbodies makes music that recalls epic music from the 1960s. Alice is a real throwback.
Here’s a video of Meatbodies performing live last summer.
The debut album from Washington, D.C., band Priests, Nothing Feels Natural, is one of the most exciting albums of this young, new year.

Chicagoans can check out this rising band at Beat Kitchen Thursday night. There are still tickets for sale (at the time of this post).
Benjamin John Power is one half of the electronic duo Fuck Buttons (F Buttons on Facebook). But he also performs and releases music as Blanck Mass.
Next month, Power is releasing Blanck Mass’ new album, World Eater.
Listen to the track, Silent Treatment, from the new album. World Eater is expected out March 3.
