Cobra Lounge Presents
The Bribes, Baby Money
235 N. Ashland
Chicago, IL, 60607
This event is 21 and over
The Bribes play dirty, moody, imaginative blues-rock from the soul. Relying on genre-bending songwriting originality and good old-fashioned musical instrumentation, the Chicago-based band has played a dynamic brand of rock and roll for toe-tapping audiences all around the city since 2011. Haunting stylized vocals and huge electric guitar act as anchors to round out their dark, bluesy sound. With musical influences ranging from early American blues to the British Invasion, The Bribes have sparked comparisons to artists like Elvis and The Black Keys, but they have cultivated a sound that is all their own.
This spring, The Bribes are building on their strong foundation with a new record, The Man is Good and Fine, out April 11. Their first full-length release boasts nine raw, complex tunes that were made for the modern stage, but that wouldn't be out of place at an under-the-sea fifties prom or a klezmer revival show in the eighties. Dancing encouraged.
