It’s been almost five years since DEAD RIDER unleashed its brand of dark psychedelic funk. Since that first show in their hometown of Chicago, IL they have produced three LPs, toured the United States extensively, and played a handful of UK gigs including the ATP festival in 2011 and 2012. A few great players have been in and out of the group in that time. Todd Rittmann (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Andrea Faught (synth, trumpet, vocals), Matthew Espy (drums), and Thymme Jones (synth, trumpet, vocals) have been the current lineup for the last two years and have furthered the band’s reputation as a challenging and entertaining powerhouse. Their most recent album, Chills on Glass, was released this spring by Drag City.

TROPICAL TRASH have caused quite a stir with their two 7″ records, Fear of Suffering, and Think Back Kick a Beer, both on Sophomore Lounge. Still Single describes TROPICAL TRASH as an “Excellent combination of thrashing energy and solid ideas that break apart and recombine in novel, tuneful ways.” They’re just as thrilling live as on record, so don’t miss this opportunity to rock out with ‘em!
