This week, PLRG sat down with one of our favorite Chicago bands, Loyal Divide
, to learn more about their music and life in the Windy City:
Loyal Divide, originally conceived at Miami Ohio, has been on the Chicago scene for the past five years. Fresh off the boat from SXSW, you may have seen them recently playing at the likes of Schubas, The Empty Bottle and the Bottom Lounge.
In ten words or less, they describe their music as "Beat driven, grungy, dance pop-that reflects our cold Chicago." After what we heard at our last Loyal Divide concert, we would have to agree. Not to mention we've also heard they do some killer Prince covers.
When they're not jamming out and making girls swoon at local venues, you can find these boys hanging out at Cody's, Sidestreet Saloon or attempting to gain "regular" status at Old Town Ale House on North Ave... a feat that takes decades if memory serves us correctly.
So, how does one PLRG score a pass to what is clearly going to be the best Saturday night of their life? CLICK HERE
to buy your ticket and show our boys at Loyal Divide a little love.
See you ladies Saturday Night. Branded starts at 8pm, and Loyal Divide goes on at 9pm sharp.
