These songs are a knife in your heart; irrational revolution leaving crumbling ruins. Gothic-art rock rebels from neo-depression era Chicago: The Walking Shadows. Obsessed with Shakespeare, Ovid, and ex-lovers, the Walking Shadows scream their abashed poetics with a dark mythos that haunts you like doomy guitars and all your favorite demons. Their abrasive verse—“This is not poetry, because you’re not that pretty”—will move you to uneasiness and scare you because the music is giving you every reason to sing along.
Heralding the release of their new EP, "This is not Poetry..." The Shadows bring the darkness back to Subterranean. Doors at 7pm. lots of bands.
