Radio fuzz preceded my first experience with Chicago group, My Gold Mask. Once the radio dial landed on their Live From Studio 10 debut, it didn’t take me long to fall in love with Gretta Rochelle’s pure and haunting vocals and the music surrounding them.
The goth pop outfit bounced around the Midwest towards the end of October; you may recall our “Give it a Spin” feature on MGM that lead up to their Kansas City performance. It was awesome to hear the new track, “Severed”, come out of the group, and it only made us more excited for them to return to Chicago for an evening.
Playing with My Gold Mask are Chicago friends, Minor Characters. In August, the outfit spent time in the studio recording their full length album, and the retro-pop quartet will hopefully bring a good mix of well-known and brand new tunes to their Saturday performance. Their sophomore EP, Heal Me, Healing Times, is a Radiohead-influenced piece of indie rock, and it’s available to check out below:
Also playing with My Gold Mask and Minor Characters this evening is Magicks.
