mind's hideaway


mind's hideaway has been described as a band that "trenscends stylistic conventions" with a melodic jammy rock sound the likes of Sublime, 311 and Incubus. With hard angry Rage-like songs to chillin' jams that put you on the beach, mind's hideaway is about having a good time.


Three parts Chicago suburbs and one part Alaska combine to make mind's hideaway. This is where good time jam band music meets unapologetic, in your face alternative rock. mind's hideaway rides the connection between the original, important rock of the '60s and the next generation of rebels from the '90s onwards. They are interested in similarities between bands like The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and The Allman Brothers and their modern day contemporaries such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Phish. mind's hideaway also believes very strongly in making human rights the central platform for all public policy. They organized "The Jamout to Help Ray Graham Out" in June of '07 in Elmhurst, IL and helped raise over $2000 for the Ray Graham Association, a non-profit that supports adults with special needs. mind's hideaway has opened for such national acts as Local H and The Wailers and played countless venues including Cubby Bear Wrigleyville and Kinetic Playground. At the 2008 Taste of Chicago, the band turned a 45 minute set into an hour and a half rockathon when the following band was running late. Their new full length album, "Supercollider" was released in November to great fanfare.
