Pelafina, The Flips, Jeff Schaller and the Long Way Home, Dahinda 2/17

Pelafina (Chicago, IL) - Indie, Alternative, Emo, Punk

One of the 309's greats now firmly resides in Chicago! Their energy is unmatched, with their huge sound filling whatever room they happen to be playing. Don't miss their triumphant return to nightshop!

The Flips (Chicago, IL) - Alternative, Indie Rock, Emo

The five members of The Flips are known for crafting deeply personal songs driven by introspective lyrics and densely layered instrumentals. "Better Days," the band's sophomore LP, examined lead singer Nick Sintos’ experience with mental illness, from diagnosis to therapy and treatment, and the reality of living with mental health issues afterward. The dark, honest stories were supported with a heavy, fuzzy guitar-driven sound. The reception to this effort has led to appearances at some of Chicago’s most venerable venues, including The Metro and multiple appearances at The House of Blues.

Never ones to remain idle, The Flips are continuously writing new music and performing in Chicago and across the Midwest. Recently releasing a self-produced split EP with Chicago-based rock band Pelafina, The Flips were inspired to take a more hands-on approach to the recording process of their newest EP. "Exactly Where I Should Be," expected out in fall of 2018, expands on the band’s intimate lyrical style and layered approach to recording. The first single, "What's the Plan?," combines their undeniably melodic approach with their penchant for titanic guitar sounds and lush vocal harmonies.

Following the release of their new EP, The Flips plan to return to what they do best: connecting with audiences at home and elsewhere by leaving their hearts on stage at every show.
