UNHOLY EMPIRE & COBRA LOUGNE PRESENTS
I:Scintilla, Defcon, JILT
235 N. Ashland
Chicago, IL, 60607
This event is 21 and over
The band is led by dynamic frontwoman Brittany Bindrim, whose words, melodies, and soaring vocals have resonated with a devoted and growing fanbase. Rounding out the lineup are Jim Cookas (guitar/programming), Vincent Grech (drums), and Brent Leitner (guitar/programming). Over the years the band has established a solid reputation as a live act with their high energy shows that feature a mix of rock and electronic elements.
Not ones to let the younger experimental scene hog all the industrial-music influence, Chicago spooks Defcon bring it back to the earnest desperation that characterized the genre's '90s boom in popularity. Brooding metal riffs, blastbeats, and jittery electronics combine in what the band's bio claims is "a crushing ode to man's exhausted struggle to live in a world that's only visible purpose is to kill him." (In short, now the party can really start!) Defcon plays here behind its most recent fusion of dark danceability and black-metal suffering, the 2010 full-length Flat Black Philosophy.

JILT front man Peter Propaganda has been a fixture on the Chicago industrial scene, both as a Dj and with JILT and other music and multimedia projects. Currently returning to activity after a medial hiatus, JILT is on a fucking warpath to make up for lost time. You have been warned
