“THE FUNS provide an exceptional challenge to the music writer. First and foremost, since the band rose through the ranks of Chicago’s illegal and underground venues, the simple fact is that experiencing the band’s recordings separates the listener from the band’s ‘natural’ environment. Secondly, like most independent, outsider pop bands in recent years, THE FUNS’ music is really without genre. You could call them a punk band, but that’s not quite right – their songs are often chugging, slow, and tempo-shifting. Yet, the band isn’t really noisy or crazy, either — they don’t mash effects pedals, they don’t play with signal noise, they don’t manipulate tape, etc. And, as muddy the band might sound, this certainly isn’t what you’d recognize as grunge. So you see, we have a full gamut of ill-fitting categories for THE FUNS.” -Nicholas Zettel, Decoder Magazine: http://www.secretdecoder.net/reviews/2013/06/04/the-funs-the-funs/
EVAN PATTERSON, ACOUSTIC GUITAR will be just like it sounds: the debut of a surprise, completely solo set by Evan Patterson, guitarist/vocalist for Young Widows, Old Baby, and Jaye Jayle. So gather ’round the imaginary campfire, and get ready for some songs, Louisville!
