  3. Hiya youngbloods,

    On Wednesday, our little rockin’ trio were invited to play the kick-off of this year’s summer sessions of Girls Rock! Chicago Rock Camps. We did our best PG-13 renditions for all of the 8-16 year old campers and their parents, and hopefully inspired some future female rockers.

    The camp, a week-long crash course in learning an instrument, forming a band, and performing your own song, sounds amazing. It took me so long to be able to pick up a guitar and perform in front of even my closest friends. I was in college before I could perform in front of a crowd. The ripple effect from the confidence and tenacity that this camp instills in these girls will be felt for years to come in the Chicago music scene. Check it out for yourself: http://girlsrockchicago.org/

    On the horizon, we’re ecstatic to be playing with Kittens?, Indian Summer and Natalie Grace Alford!!!  That’s July 11th at the Underground Lounge.

    Come say hello to all of us! Do NOT say goodbye.

     
  4. Property of Saints hit up the Township stage once more this past Friday, June 7th with 13 MONSTERS and STILL MACHINE.  A night of heavy tunes and hearty company, we were super stoked to hit up one of our favorite Chicago venues this weekend.  After a Monday night live session with podcasters the DONKEY BANANA SHOW, we were fueled up and ready to rumble!  Next up, we play UNDERGROUND LOUNGE on Thursday, July 11th!  Stay tuned, and stay classy!

    Speaking of monsters and creatures of the night, check out this cartoon rendering of Property of Saints and 13 MONSTERS for our show next FRI, JUNE 7TH at Township, Chicago with DIY punk rockers 13 Monsters and STILL MACHINE.  Not only do we get to play a dope show with all 13 of these creatures (I’m imagining that each monster represents a member of the band), but we are going to be performing LIVE on the DONKEY BANANA SHOW podcast hosted by 13 Monsters on MON, JUNE 3RD for all of you ghouls and gremlins to preview what is in store for you at our show!  Thanks again to Steve Sabo for the rad artistry!

  8. WISCONSIN: A RECAP OF BEERS, BRATS & BABES- BY THE BASSIST

    Hey there slayers!  Property of Saints just completed our live debut in the “forward state” Wisconsin this weekend, and we had a blast.  A huge thank you needs to be given to our friends, family, and fans that hosted us, fed us, and joined us for a weekend of beers, brats and babes.  We had our expectations blown out of the water by all of the kind words, amazing acts, and shared love for music this weekend.  We could not have done any of it without all the fine people of Wisconsin who made our weekend a reality.

    Friday night the Property of Saints escape pod landed at Milwaukee’s Riverwest Public House where we shared the appropriately bird-themed stage with folk rockers OKERLO, blues jammers CHERRYBALL, and indie duo SLIGHT GHOST.  This neighborhood music spot had some of the finest sound we have encountered, manned by a smiling sound veteran named River.  Crew mates from Chicago surprised us by driving up to the show, and the excitement of the night led to one of our most JACKED performances to date.  

    After a tequila doused night and a lazy day sampling Milwaukee’s Lakefront Brewery beer, we hit the road again on Saturday north all the way to Wausau.  Whatever expectations we had going into the night were immediately blasted into space and turned into a pretty fireworks display as soon as opening act KITTENS? hit the stage.  Front man Jerry Duginski moved around the stage much like a big cat stalking his prey as his raspy and commanding voice filled the air with roars of love had and love lost.  At his side, guitarist Devil Rick slayed pinch harmonics while drummer Chopper Dave drove the band straight home and into our hearts.  The crowd showed some mad love for Kittens? and banjo-sax fused act THE HI-MATICS.  Our set had some minor hiccups (Abby’s amp shorted and Paul nearly threw up on his drums from a burger-induced moment of nausea), but overall, we gave Wausau our all and in return got some of the most sincere and encouraging feedback we could have asked for.  Serious respect to the town of Wausau, Wisconsin.  Y’all know how to party until the sun comes up and show a few wayward city slickers one hell of a time.

    As Wisconsin natives The Bodeans once said, “Paradise, it ain’t hard to find.  Looking out your window at the world outside”.  Thank you Wisconsin. You have won our hearts and our ears, and we will meet again soon.

    Property of Saints are heading to Milwaukee tomorrow night for our debut in the great big ol’ state of Wisconsin.  We get the privilege of our first show of the weekend to be at RIVERWEST PUBLIC HOUSE with locals OKERLO and their fast folk tunes, dream duo SLIGHT GHOST, and the ROBERT JOHN & CHERRYBALL gang.  We are testing out some new material and switching up our set list with this show.  Get ready, Milwaukee.  We plan to rock your cap off.
AND THAT’S ONLY THE HALF OF IT! We take flight again on Saturday to Wausau, WI to the highly anticipated POLACK INN with KITTENS and THE HI-MATICS!  Who knows what sort of shenanigans the three of us will get into once we go off the grid and into the wild north. I can only imagine great things.

    "Swag", you say? Yes, that is our very swag drummer Paul sitting on the classiest drum throne/recliner of all time.  As we get settled in at our new practice space, new gems keep popping up that are making stellar additions to this spanking new room.  That fresh paint and untainted carpet will be getting broken in as we get ready for our next few shows coming up next weekend in the big ol’ cheese planet colloquially known as Wisconsin.  We will be hitting up Milwaukee on Friday, May 10th at the RIVERWEST PUBLIC HOUSE with local blasters OKERLO, SLIGHT GHOST and CHERRYBALL.  On Saturday May 11th, we take flight again and play Wausau’s POLACK INN with KITTENS.  Yes, I said KITTENS.  Stay tuned for our next posts that follow us into fresh Property of Saints territory!  KA-KAW, my friends.  KA-KAWW!
