"Richard Milne - Local Anesthetic"

I actually find energy during these kind of heatwaves or maybe it’s just because I’ve got so much going on these days that if I don’t continuously get done what needs to get done, I’m totally screwed. I’m sure you’ve been there. Anyway, as I currently sit in my 87 degree office (long story), I’m starting to make some final choices for this Sunday night’s Local Anesthetic. I like these fellas out of St. Charles called The Giving Moon. They’re another crew that doesn’t appear to be old enough to drive let alone sound this good. See the video below and witness just how young. The Wild is their new EP. Maxel Toft continues his descending catalog (or, catalog of descent?) numbered after our Presidents beginning with Mr. Clinton, I believe. Maxel is now down to Prez 32 aka FDR and, well, it’s kind of hard to explain what the idea behind all of this is. Just check his website out. Long time Chicago music veteran Jordan Macarus with Kevin Ashford Jr. and Isaiah Webb under the name JKI. The disc is entitled Truce, Vol 1. I’ll give that a spin and some other stuff, too. Well, it’s not really “stuff”; it’s the new tunes from Chicago bands I think will pique your interest on this week’s Local Anesthetic, Sunday night at 7:30 here on XRT. - WXRT

"DMA’s Light Up Schubas With The Giving Moon"

You may have already heard of DMA’s, because they are midst rocking the festival circuit, but last night DMA’S made sure Chi-town knew their name as they blew away Schubas with the help of a local Chicago band The Giving Moon.

The Giving Moon is a “three-piece original alternative rock band” of extremely young but extremely talented artists, and they kicked off the night beautifully. The energy given off during the show was intoxicating, TGM fans jammed out with the young artists throughout the whole set. After the final song, the crowd begged for more, chanting for an encore. To ease the crowd’s eager desire for more TGM music, the band let us in on a little secret. The Giving Moon will soon release their second EP, which fans will be waiting on the edge of their seats for. In the meantime, we suggest playing The Wild– EP on a constant loop and that you keep an eye out for any shows The Giving Moon has coming up. TGM is a local Chicago band, and you’ll be able to find them lighting up different venues all over the city.

As soon as DMA’s took the stage, the atmosphere was electric. They opened the set with the song “Timeless” off their new LP Hills End. Suddenly, the room became a dance party. Those who had once lined the walls joined the rest of the crowd and let the music guide them. From “Timeless,” to the fan favorite “Delete,” to the closing song “Play it out,” the fans never missed a beat. They danced freely and sang the lyrics of every song along with front man, Tommy O’Dell. The set was a blissful hour of amazing dance and song.

The bands gave the crowd an unforgettable night. Don’t worry if you weren’t able to be there, DMA’s are blowing up and we know they’ll be back. You can see them next time they stop in Chicago or this year at Coachella. Either way, keep your eye out for DMA’s, they’re an act you can’t miss. Be on the lookout for more coverage with DMA’S from us, including an interview with the Australian talents themselves. - Chicago Music
