Bluetown was born underground in 1996 from a desire for style and substance. We set out to create a company that defines our dedication to skateboarding. Chicago is our home and is known for harsh weather, rough ground and blow-hard politicians. This diverse environment breeds a unique type of skater who uses experience to focus on the here and now. We turn obstacles into assets and failures into a foundation for success. Bluetown makes the case with a distinct, low-key style and personal hard work in order to deliver a quality product. The Bluetown company and it’s members stand behind our skateboards.
“We call it American Gypsy, because it wanders but isn’t lost. Its a tramp, you can’t get lost when you’re in love with where you are.”
Formed in 2011, songwriter/director Antony Ablan began his search for a band–a group of musicians that could handle, with grace, the wildly eclectic and dynamic changes in mood of his writing. “It was several months of working with all sorts of great players before I found the right fit. When it clicked it was so obvious to me, I knew these were the right musicians, it finally worked.”
The virtuosic group developed quickly. “Once it clicked, things moved fast,” says Antony. The band soon found themselves headlining Chicago’s most notable venues, from Schubas to Lincoln Hall, to The Empty Bottle. They embarked on their first national tour in the fall of 2011, earning notoriety for their explosive live shows all the down to Texas and back. Swinging from gentle sunshine ditties to wild soaring epics, to dirty garage floor american gypsy, The Tramps had come into their own.
Upon returning to Chicago, full of fire, they began recording their ambitious debut album. Over 6 winter months, the band created a completely independent, full length album. Its not a studio album, and its not a live record. Making use of portable recording gear they were able to record anywhere, at any time, with unbound freedom to experiment with sound for their anticipated debut.
The Lantern Kickers are a traditional string band from Chicago. We delve into the traditions of American old-time and bluegrass music to forge a fresh, contemporary sound. The Lantern Kickers' traditional line-up of fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, and upright bass is augmented with crisp harmony singing. Mixing harmony vocals and lightning fast, precise picking, our sound is familiar and gets you fired up.

One would have to be in a pretty foul mood not to be entertained by the mysterious awesomeness of Bob Log III. Sure, his musical skills are something to behold, his one-man-band brand of blues/Americana displaying dexterity, creativity, and plenty of good old rock â€˜n’ roll, but then there’s his wacky persona. At Monday’s packed Union Hall gig, Mr. Log leapt from behind the curtain that functions as the stage door in his signature getup: a full suit with bits of gold teasing at the bottom, and a dark-glassed racing helmet with a phone receiver wired as a mic. After a quick intro jam he shed the formality to reveal his shimmering gold full body suit, the very rocket man the audience had been waiting for, and burst into “Goddam Sounds Good” off the recently released My Shit Is Perfect.
