    IDEAMEN w/ The Fine Constant, Sparklefuck, Made of Blocks IDEAMEN w/ The Fine Constant, Sparklefuck, Made of Blocks May 16, 9:00 PM Ages: 18+$5 / $8 under 21IDEAMEN w/ The Fine Constant, Sparklefuck, Made of BlocksIDEAMENIdeamen, from Chicago's south side, are an intense musical experience, best seen live to appreciate. This piano driven act has toured throughout much of the U.S., growing their fan base & putting on a show that turns 1st time spectators into instant fans. Their first two releases, the currently out of print EP "Progress" & "May You Live In Interesting Times" are considered staples in the experimental post rock scene. Their third release & second full length effort "Schemata" will be available worldwide on Tuesday, February 4th, 2014.Ideamen is DIY; pressing their own merch, acting as their own publicists & recording / mixing their own music.Ideamen's mission is to give their audience far more than the typical rock show. Ideamen transcends the status quo as they expend every bit of their energy on the stage. The show almost always includes a barrage of balloons & strange mash-ups of cover songs ranging from The Beatles, Radiohead, Mr. Bungle, Pantera & Tori Amos. People seem to love losing themselves in the moment of watching the band perform.THE FINE CONSTANTThe band formed in May of 2012 when Sarah Longfield reached out to her compatriots in an attempt to begin performing her solo material in a live setting. Within a just few short weeks the line-up was solidified. Months of touring, writing, and collaborating are soon to follow.SPARKLEFUCKmurderpunk murderband you can play for the kidsMADE OF BLOCKSA band formed in 2013 featuring Adam Manos (Awesome Car Funmaker) on Drums, Ryan Schremp (Sparklefuck) on Bass, Ben Ligocki singing and playing guitar, and Lance Erickson (Secret Secretions) playing lead guitars.$5 / $8 under 21Ages: 18+
