Death in June Performs at REGGIES Chicago

Monday, September 09, 2013 Sophie Magdalena

Monday = Everyone's favorite day of the week... yea?!  

Ok... Maybe not so much.  But just because the dreaded arrival of Monday typically means another long work week, doesn't mean we have to stop having fun for 4-5 days straight!  

This coming Monday, September 16th, be sure to hit up REGGIES Chicago for some good eats, tasty cocktails and a live performance from Death in June.  

"REGGIES brings a music fan's ultimate dream to reality with a terrific bar and grill, kickin' rock club, and a music lover's record store - all under one roof!"  

I stole that quote from the REGGIES website, but seriously, if you've never been, then make it a point to go....  It is a great and intimate venue that has seen the likes of some quality musicians since the doors opened back in 2007; including Alkaline Trio & Gaslight Anthem (two personal favorites of mine)!  

And if you've never heard of Death in June, they are a neo-folk band, formed originally in 1981 as a trio out of Britain.  The band has survived over 3 decades with a multitude of bandmates and collaborations, however the creator Douglas Pearce (or Douglas P., as he's most widely known), has been the one constant since the bands formation.  

With over 30 years in the biz, the band has seen many shifts and changes in style and music genre, having begun it's journey in post punk.  Today you'll find they've settled on a more acoustic, easy-listening, folk-oriented approach that suits Douglas P. quite nicely.  His influence has been instrumental in sparking neofolk, of which his music has subsequently become a part.  

So don't miss your opportunity to see Death in June live in Chicago and to jam with the folks of Halfstack Magazine who will be onsite checking out the venue, the band and enjoying the funky, chill sounds of the band.  General Admission tickets are priced at a very affordable $30.00.  Buy your tickets now, HERE.
