TVD Recommends: Churchill, The Damn Choir, and The Dirty Pigeons at the Beat Kitchen, 12/7

Denver based quintet, Churchill, will be bringing their folk-rock to the Beat Kitchen this Friday to share the stage with Chicago locals The Damn Choir and The Dirty Pigeons. If you’re not familiar with this particular group of bands, you can sample some tracks for yourself below, or just take my assurance that this is going to be an amazing show.

Since their formation in 2009 as a duo, Churchill has grown as a group and put a number of releases behind them along the way. After selling over 1,000 copies of their debut EP, the group moved onto their first full length effort, Happy/Sad.

Churchill’s latest release, and debut for A&M/Octone Records, Change EP, was entirely self-produced and recorded with the intention of capturing the vibe of the group’s live performance. See how they did by taking a look at the official music video for the track “Change”, above, and then checking them out live at the show on Friday.

Setting the stage for Churchill on Friday will be TVD oft-mentioned folk outfit, The Damn Choir. Supporting their sophomore release from April, You’re My Secret Called Fire, the group celebrated the album with the sold out release show at the Hideout.

Much like Churchill, The Damn Choir has been evolving since their inception as a duo in early 2009. Now at six members, the group just seems to get better each time I get them opportunity to see them live.

And finally, opening the show will be Chicago rock quartet, The Dirty Pigeons. After close to a year of self-recording, engineering, and mixing, the group recently released their debut effort, The Dirty Pigeons EP.

They’ve also spent the last year showcasing their live performance at a number of events including a spot on 2011’s incredible Chicago Bluegrass and Blues Festival. Take a listen to the track, “Forget What You Said,” from the new EP, above.

The 17+ show starts at 8:30 PM, this Friday, 12/7, at the Beat Kitchen – 2100 W Belmont. Tickets will only set you back $10, and you can pick them up online through TicketWeb or at the door before the show.
