Schubas Tonight--Purple Apple, The Blisters and When Flying Feels Like Falling
Don't underestimate these kids because of their age. These bands rock! Come check out some of the youngest musicians in the city actually getting gigs in real clubs, outside of organizations like Girls Rock Chicago and School of Rock.
We saw Purple Apple at Redmoon's JOE fest last year and were blown away. We also remember The Blisters from way back in the day when they played Kidzapalooza 2006. They were still young children themselves and they happily signed t-shirts for Du-Jay and Sagezilla, who were 3 & 5 at the time!
I've never seen WFFLF, but I first met Violet (guitars/vocals) when she was a toddler-no older than 3. Even then she was unique and stood out from the others. Can't wait to hear them all play!
ChiIL Mama gave away a pair of tickets earlier in the week and we'll be there to interview some of the band members and bring you a taste of their live tunes. We'll run a full feature on the bands in the near future. For now, come check 'em out LIVE at Schubas tonight. All ages. Show is 7pm-10pm. Here's what the Schubas site has to say:
