The Chicago area has a long musical legacy of producing stars in various genres, but in the past few years, it has become especially recognized for new indie bands. (This is the land of the too-cool blogs Pitchfork and Consequence of Sound, after all.) If you’re looking for a new favorite artist that your friends haven’t heard of, you’re in luck—several great Chicagoland groups are coming to DC this month, including Twin Peaks.
Hometown: Chicago.Sounds like: Smith Westerns (another Chicago band), with the same it’s-summertime-and-school’s-out vibe.
Best track: “Making Breakfast” (2014), a ridiculously catchy parody of a love song, with lyrics like “Got egg yolk on my bed, Chinese food on the way.”
You should know: An opening act for this show—fellow Chicagoans Post Animal—features guitarist Joe Keery, better known as the actor who plays Steve Harrington on Netflix’s Stranger Things.
