    Betta Promotions presents: - Butterfly Assassins - Loyal Divide - Venna Tuesday 06/02/2009 7:00 PM |21+All Ages|$5.00 ($8.00 Door)|Listen Butterfly Assassins, boasting members from the University of Michigan, the University of Illinois and Northwestern, play frenzied rock tracks that would have sounded alien eight years ago but, thanks to the likes of Arcade Fire and Northwestern alum Andrew Bird, can be filed in the ârock-ân'-roll with a classical biteâ category. This classical element of the band plays a vital role in Butterfly Assassinsâ music, as most of the songs on their first full-length album, Sylvia, plow ahead on piano keys and strings, and are just as prominent in the bandâs songs as conventional guitars and drums, if not more so. What immediately makes Butterfly Assassins miles better than most college groups is the lack of novelty. This isnât a group of friends goofing around on a Friday night: Itâs a group of friends experimenting with the skills they have to create something refreshing.Loyal Divide is a 5-piece experimental pop/rock band from Chicago, IL. The band's sound grafts tight-locked grooves upon broad strokes of psychedelic pop; a style which, if once derivative, has developed into something both accessible and triumphantly original. Truly a live act, the band performs with enthusiasm and energy delivered in the most genuine fashion. Their brand of psychedelic funk is said to defy description, drawing in those who favor variety to continuity.Venna is the music of heather and her husband marky. it is the sort of music that focuses on the simplicity of life, and the fragility of being human. so far it's comprised of a couple of guitars and a few voices. more should be expected.
