Come pay your respects to summer at our REV x BLU Skate Jam on August 23rd from Noon to 4pm in the Schubas' parking lot.

There will be $2 Revolution cans, DJ sets, trick contests with prizes, and a raffle. The pros from Bluetown Skateboards will be there in full effect and we’ll be selling Rev x Blu skate decks and tees @ 50% off! Come hang!

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.

London, ON's Single Mothers has made a compelling case for how red flags, stacked odds, and strikeouts can somehow inspire a collective recklessness to keep at it. Known for their dangerously explosive live show and the palpable tension that bleeds into their music, the band has broken up countless times. However, after disbanding in early 2011 the band quietly posted their final EP online. It achieved a cult following and inspired the band to reform the following year. Pairing feral punk with rock 'n roll sensibilities, Single Mothers has accepted that all their trials, tribulations, and tensions have not only gotten them here but have motivated them to work even harder. And, it that's to be believed then a ton of wrongs can lead to a right.

Mortified stars everyday people like YOU reading aloud their most embarrassing, pathetic and private teenage diary entries, poems, love letters, lyrics and locker notes... in front of total strangers. Witness "personal redemption through public humiliation" in a refreshing show that is equal parts comedic, cathartic and voyeuristic. The largest and longest running project of its kind featuring a cast of Chicago's bravest souls. Share the shame.

Söndörgo (pronounce Shoendoergoe)

Söndörgo is one of the most active and interesting world music groups in Hungary. They play a style of music that is hugely attractive, but little known and quite different to the traditional, fiddle-led hungarian repertoire. Their aim is to foster and preserve Southern Slavic traditions of the Serbs and Croats as found in various settlements in Hungary. Most of these communities are situated along the Danube, but quite isolated from each other.

The group was founded in 1995 in Szentendre a small Hungarian town near Budapest, with long-established Serbian tradition. The Eredics brothers got acquainted, and started to play music together with (bass player) Attila Buzás during their high-school years. Partly because of family reasons (Kálmán Eredics, the father of the Eredics brothers, was a founder member of the Vujicsics ensemble), all the group members are profoundly touched by, and drawn towards Southern Slav folk music. Söndörgo’s mission is to research it, arrange it and perform it on stage. The current members of the group are: Áron Eredics, Benjamin Eredics, Dávid Eredics, Salamon Eredics and Attila Buzás.

In contrast to most groups playing Balkan music, Söndörgo isn’t playing brass band music, it is a tamburitza band. The tambura is a small and agile plucked instrument similar to the mandolin which is occasionally supplemented by wind instruments and accordion. Söndörgo’s traditional repertoire is made up of material gathered by Béla Bartók and Tihamér Vujicsics as well as learned from old masters of the tradition.

Few bands can be simultaneously timeless and relevant, but that's exactly the hi-wire act Zeus has become as a new millennium hit factory set for a triumphant return with the release of sophomore full-length Busting Visions.

The album follows 2010 Polaris Prize-nominated debut Say Us, which topped CBC charts, won XM The Verge's award for Album of the Year, garnered stellar reviews from top rock mags like Q and Uncut and led to shows with Broken Social Scene, Metric, Sam Roberts Band, Bright Eyes and Belle & Sebastian.

And with all of this, Busting Visions finds Zeus already hitting the ground running.

Driven by the three-headed songwriting beast of multi instrumentalists/vocalists Mike O'Brien, Carlin Nicholson and Neil Quin as well as drummer Rob Drake, they operate out of a dilapidated garage in Toronto's scrappy east end. There, the band's Ill Eagle studio serves as ground zero for a burgeoning scene of collaborators, for which Zeus is the lightning rod.

“I feel like our previous music was fall and winter music. I wanted this new album to sound more like summer. I want people to feel like they walked outside on a summer day.” – Ben Hardesty

To capture the new sounds on The Last Bison’s upcoming album titled VA (pronounced Virginia,) the band spent many days and nights in an old A-frame cabin. The cabin, called “the Wigwam” sits on a summer camp on the edge of the Great Dismal Swamp near the band’s home in Chesapeake, Virginia. The pine-lined walls and high-lofted beams became home to a temporary studio where front man Ben Hardesty says, “We had freedom to explore and create without the time constraints we lived under on previous projects.” Out of this rustic cabin emerged a collection of music with booming organic drums and energy beyond anything on their previous work.

In 2012 The Last Bison seemingly rose from the marshes of southeastern Virginia to captivate the national music scene with a rare blend of music that NPR dubbed, “Classical influenced southern folk rock.” Commenting on the band’s self-released debut album, Quill, a blogger for the popular music sharing site NoiseTrade remarked: “(The Last) Bison has already crafted a sound that is threaded with their own singular strands of creativity. Songs unfurl in textured, poetic waves that are based far more in inspiration than imitation.” WXPN of Philadelphia noted The Last Bison “has subsequently swept the musical scene with its complex arrangements, refined lyrics and vocal harmonies.”
