Chicago Underground Film Festival Opening Night Party
Venue: Elastic Arts Foundation 3429 W Diversey Ave #208, Chicago, IL 60647
at 10 PM
Petras is a multi instrumentalist singer-songwriter born in a suburb of Detroit now based in
Chicago blending indie, folk and rock with an appropriate measure of dissonance and nostalgia.
Originally formed to create a film score, Tarnation continues to take a cinematic approach to
sound and music. Delivering ambient soundscapes, punctuated by sound effects and sampled
voices, cultural references and suggested narrative emerge and dissolve into the ethereal
sound, forging trenches along which the familiar gives way to the uncanny and the
unprecedented begins to appear.
Chicago Underground Film Festival presents ADT, Brett Naucke, and Golden Donna
venue: The Burlington Bar, 3425 W Fullerton Ave, Chicago, IL 60647
Doors at 9, music at 9:30
Is an audio & visual artist from Chicago, IL currently recording for the Spectrum
Spools record label.
ADT is a Chicago 5-piece band improvising in raw form. No rules, pretensions, or plans. Hints
of electronic music permeate the free jazz landscape laid down by the tumbling rhythm section.
The hints at psychedelic/spiritual jazz of the 1970’s bubbling to the surface will pull onto a
groove, but quickly dissipate into a harsh abyss. Funk and failure dive into the same pool, free
Golden Donna is the electronic outlet of Madison, Wisconsin’s Joel Shanahan. The project
draws on genres ranging from psych to house music to create layered tracks built on powerful,
danceable rhythms and bass lines and intricate, headphone-worthy synth composition.
