Golden Horse Ranch Band
The Golden Horse Square Dance Band was founded in 2000 by Annie Coleman and Anthony Burton. Annie grew up calling square dancing at her families resort (The Golden Horse Ranch. www.goldenhorseranch.com). The Golden Horse Ranch Band's 5 part harmonies and good time stomping cowboy style is not to be missed. This 7 piece ensemble features mandolin, fiddle, upright bass, banjo, guitar, snare drum/washboard, and the occasional bassoon, played by a stellar group of musicians from a cross section of Chicago bands, such as Reds and Blue, Palliard, the Lawrence Peters Outfit, The 1900's, Tangleweed, and everyone's favorite marching band, Mucca Pazza.
SLOP SINK is Jakob, Selma, Blue, and Avi. As queer and trans people, we play punk rock that deals with complexity, loneliness, kinky sex, being queer and trans, having fun, getting drunk, queer family, fucked up parents, and criminalization of young queer and trans youth of color in Chicago.
SLOP SINK believes in punk rock and its ability to affect change musically and emotionally. We identify our politics and our sexuality as queer, so accountability, intentionality, radical change, prison abolition, love, activism, consent, and recognizing privilege often find their way into our songs.
