A singer/songwriter plays guitar-based music but yearns for more accessibility. A producer remixes one of her songs. The singer contacts the producer to say she really enjoys the mix and to see what else can be done with her voice and his beats. A band is formed. Class Actress has its roots all over the country, but their base is now Brooklyn. Elizabeth Harper, Mark Richardson and Scott Rosenthal turned a few heads earlier this year with their electro-poppiness and synthesized beats highlighted by Harper's seductive vocals. Think Figurine, Barcelona (the DC band), a brighter Ladytron, etc. Their Journal of Ardency EP is the precursor to a forthcoming album next year.
Class Actress plays with Jagjaguwar's Small Black at the Empty Bottle on Monday, November 15. Chicago's Shapers open at 9:30PM. The show's 21+ and $10. (Yeah, I know; I thought the Bottle was free on Mondays, too.) The Empty Bottle's at 1035 N Western.
