Gapers Block presents:
20x2: How Do You Do?
Twenty speakers. One question. Two minutes each.
GapersBlock.com hosts the biannual Chicago edition of Austin TX's infamous show 20x2. Twenty people from all different walks of creative life -- writers, musicians, filmmakers, web geeks and other bon vivants -- get two minutes each to answer the question of the day in whatever way they like. The results can be as varied as the emotions and reactions they evoke. This edition's question is "How do you do?"
RSVP on Facebook.
The music of Barber Greene is photographic. Originally from the rural DeKalb, IL—where he helped form Light Pollution (Carpark)—the Chicago transplant’s songs are vulnerable and personal. Left untreated, they wouldn’t sound out of place next to early Sufjan Stevens; but the quiet, contemplative songs quickly become massive and triumphant once filled with his imaginative, buoyant arrangements, the way a memory imbues new meaning on the faded faces of old photographs. Like exhuming dusty shoeboxes of developed disposable cameras, listening to Barber Greene allows us to linger, to daydream about the things you’ve had, the things you want, the things you will never attain.
Landmarks is a Chicago-based band that’s mixture of shoegaze, art-rock and psychedelic surfiness has beckoned comparisons to Deerhunter (Brooklyn Vegan) and Real Estate (Dots and Dashes). The band employs a wide range of effects, synths, and organs to create deeply textured and atmospheric music. The five-piece's ability to go from ambient soundscapes to manic, noisier tracks is evident from their 2013 single on Public House Recordings, as well as their new self titled EP (limited release on Manic Static). Recent shows have seen the band perform alongside Real Estate, Dead Meadow, Courtney Barnett, and Crystal Stilts.
Ghastly Menace is an indie pop group that was formed in Chicago, IL. Initially started as a recording project between two friends, Songs of Ghastly Menace, marks the group’s first full band effort. Recorded in collaboration with songwriter/producer Nigel Dennis, the album expands greatly upon the experimentation and stylistic range of 2010’s Pitcairn EP, yet maintains the pop sensibility and songwriting that have defined the group from the beginning.
Jodi and Sarah represent the front women of rootsy, Chicago band, Jenny Dragon. Their original songs defy category, reviving and redefining music that combines jazz, blues, country, folk, doo wop, and rock influences, often shifting genres to best serve the story of a song. Dolly Parton, John Prine, Nancy Sinatra, and Molly Drake are also in the wheelhouse of cover songs the lend themselves easily to Jenny Dragon's sound. Raucous odes to summer, Vegas-cabaret interpretations of nuclear bomb testing in America, lyrically haunting dusty houses, serial killers - nothing and everything is sacred to Jenny Dragon.

Busdriver is fixed as one of LA music’s most dynamic indie artists. From his years as a cypher phenom at Project Blowed to his years as a recording artist on Epitaph to his current role as co-head of Hellfyre Club, Busdriver has always challenged rap in the most particular and thoughtful of ways.
BD’s first record, ‘Memoirs of the Elephantman’, was self released thru Afterlife records (a Project Blowed subcrew at the time) in 1999. Not until his second self-released record, ‘Temporary Forever’, came out in 2002 did Busdriver step on the world stage. Sleeper hit ‘Imaginary Places’ turned him into one of main beacons of left-leaning hip-hop at that moment. During this time he was also emceeing at the Hiphop/Drum’n’bass night Concrete Jungle with Daddy Kev, Myka 9, edit and DJ Hive.
After the new success of Temporary Forever, Busdriver signed with Mush records to do a collaborative album with beat/production guru Daedelus and quirky rap talent Radioinactive in 2003. The project was called ‘The Weather’. Their album toyed with daringly disjointed production and dexterous rap, writing in a way that Busdriver hadn’t in the past. The project amassed a small cult following all its own and aligned Driver’s taste with the output of LA’s electronic music scene.
In 2004, Busdriver began his relationship with Big Dada by releasing with them the Daddy Kev-produced mini-LP, ‘Cosmic Cleavage’. This was followed by Busdriver’s official 3rd album, Fear of a Black Tangent, released via Big Dada in the EU and on Mush in the US.
