What exactly is “Northern Rock”? I am not quite sure, but I can state without question that I want to hear more of it if bands like Great Lakes Myth Society are leading the movement. Based in Ann Arbor, Mich., this quintet led by the brothers Monger, have been churning out its dramatic brand of chamber pop since 1999. First known as the Original Brothers and Sisters of Love, the band has morphed into its current incarnation after two core members left in 2002. By 2005, Great Lakes Myth Society was officially born and started making the rounds on the national indie scene with performances at SXSW and CMJ Music Marathon.
Part of a phenomenal group of musicians coming out of the eastern Michigan scene, including artists like Canada, Mason Proper, Frontier Ruckus and more, Great Lakes Myth Society makes a tour stop with local-boy-gone-Chicago, Cameron McGill, and local mainstays, Darling Disarm, tonight at The Highdive.
If you are worried about missing March Madness, have no fear: Nieto Enterprises has the side bar equipped with televisions.
The show starts at 9 p.m. and cover is a piddly seven chips.
