Warmbloods, Pamphleteers, DJs Jacob Ross and Naomi Walker Recommended

When: Fri., April 4, 10 p.m. 2014

The Pamphleteers are bassist-vocalist Rebecca Crawford, guitarist Jonathan Ben-Isvy, and drummer Geoff Atkinson, and even though they’ve been together just a couple years, you could consider their lineup part of the aftermath of the 2005 car wreck that killed Chicago musicians Michael Dahlquist (Silkworm), Doug Meis (the Dials), and John Glick (the Returnables); Crawford played with Meis in the Dials, and Glick was her husband as well as Ben-Isvy’s bandmate in the Returnables. Knowing that backstory makes it easy to hear a lust for life in their vibrant, shimmering postpunk garage—they’re bouncy but with a darkling edge, like the B-52s on a heavy trip. —Monica Kendrick, 2013
