Stars Align Wed Dec 02 2015
Yoo Soo Kim and Jesse W. Johnson
Our concert series Stars Align brings together local artists for a unique night of collaboration, and our next session is uniting indie rockers Yoo Soo Kim (Hemmingbirds) and Jesse W. Johnson for one night only. If you like great drinks and great music, you don't want to miss this.
Kim, both as a solo artist and as part of Hemmingbirds, seamlessly blends energetic indie rock with get-up-and-dance pop hooks. Hemmingbirds' latest single "Mess of Things" is a great summer jam released just in time for winter, and the video starring a skeleton of questionable morals is DIY filmmaking at its best. Check it out below.
Johnson knows how to throw a hook as well, especially in combination with fist-clenching rock. On his newly-released Primal Scream he delivers late-night dark thoughts with a matter-of-fact storyteller's drawl, atop a bedrock of driving guitars.
The stripped-down, intimate setting of Stars Align is always a unique experience, and thanks to our sponsors at Begyle Brewing, the show is still free. As an added incentive for you to join us on Facebook, Yoo Soo Kim has pledged to cover PSY's "Daddy" if over 50 people RSVP. You know you want to see that.
Join us the next time the Stars Align, Wednesday, December 9 at 9pm at The Whistler, 2421 N Milwaukee Ave. Let us know you're coming (and tell your friends!)
