Lunar Ticks w/ Mr. Specific
Lunar Ticks are coming out for a night of Improvisational/Alternative Rock music! Tell a friend to tell a friend and see you there!
Lunar Ticks are an eclectic Improvisational/Alternative Rock band from Chicago, IL.
The band is influenced by the songwriting and studio experimentation of 90's and 2000's innovative Alternative/Indie rock bands like Wilco, My Morning Jacket, The Flaming Lips, Ween, Yo La Tengo, Pavement, and Dr. Dog, and fuses it with genre-bending, progressive musicality, and exploratory improvisations in the vein of The Grateful Dead, Phish, and Umphrey's McGee. Lunar Ticks are equally at home on a bill with a folk singer, punk band, free jazz ensemble, you name it. Each setlist is formed from their diverse and expansive song list of originals and covers; debuting new material at almost every show. Extended improvisational passages can turn on a dime or meditate and unfurl in unexpected ways. Lunar Ticks aim to create a unique and memorable experience every time they pick up their instruments.
Lunar Ticks crew has shared the stage with:
Joel Cummins- (Umphrey's McGee)- Keyboards
Brendan Bayliss- (Umphrey's McGee)- Guitar
Woody Goss- (Vulfpeck)- Keys
Chris DeAngelis- (Kung Fu)- Bass
Justin Reckamp (Mungion)- Guitar
Members of Turkuaz, Disco Biscuits, Big Gigantic, Lotus, and Aqueous
Prog Rock G Funk with some DnB & Dilla vibes sprinkled on top. Mr. Specific is an instrumental three-piece that will have you head banging, jumping around, and shaking your booty all within the same tune. Their sound can be described as progressive rock with subtle hints of hip hop, funk, drum and bass, and a healthy dose of improvisation. Their ability to craft a set list that weaves in and out of original music and interesting takes on unexpected covers is something that will leave your head spinning.
