PANTHER STYLE Chicago rockers, Panther Style, are about to enter the studio to record their 2nd full-length LP after their 1st, ¡Emergencia!, received heavy praise. They will be playing new songs off the up-coming release. A rock band to the core with tentacles across many genres, Panther Style has an aggressive sound sometimes sounding like New Order meets Tom Petty, sometimes Sleater-Kinney meets The Cult.

Chicago's The Bright White have organized the second annual Warm, Safe and Sound, a concert/clothing drive featuring some of the city's top bands, including co-headliners Panda Riot and openers Panther Style.
Warm, Safe & Sound featuring... Panda Riot - The Bright White - The Second - Panther Style - Adam Ashbach Thursday 12/20/2012 7:00 PM |18+|($8 w/ Donation Of Winter Gear) Panda Riot formed in Philadelphia while Brian Cook and Rebecca Scott were working on some short films. Soundtracks turned into songs and Panda Riot was born. They picked up a drum machine, a couple of guitars, and the result was She Dares All Things, a collection of bedroom recorded songs. A move to Chicago saw the addition of Justin Cheng on Bass and Jose Rodriguez on Aux percussion. Last year they dropped the Far and Near Ep. This year they are currently working on a new record entitled Northern Automatic Music.- - - - - - - - - -Comprised of four working class guys who proudly wear their hearts on their sleeves, Chicago's The Bright White debuted in 2011. Frontman Matthew James and guitarist Joe O'Leary dreamt up the concept of combining elements of power pop and post-punk months before drummer Steve Zelenko and bassist Peter Krutiak responded to a Craigslist ad for a rhythm section.The Bright White released their second album, Lose Yourself, in the summer of 2012. They look forward to connecting with audiences who have been waiting for sing-along choruses, fist-in-the-air guitar solos and the swagger of a band who knows its best days are ahead: "The Bright White make power pop music, with the power part made bold and underlined. This is a band that sounds hungry. Starving, even. For every catchy chorus and guitar hook, there's a sense of urgency--almost a ferocity--that goes along with it to make it clear that they know exactly what they want to do." (Windy City Rock)Tickets
