Homegrown: One Drum Shoe at Cobra Lounge May 21 Chicago, IL

One Drum Shoe
Chris Hart – vocals, guitar
David Greenhow – bass, backing vocals
David Mertz – percussion, backing vocals

One Drum Shoe has really only been around for about 6 months, but they’ve built up a healthy resume of live performances and their catalog of original work continues to grow. Look for a full length debut in the near future and in the meantime get out and see a show. They plan to keep up their current schedule of a couple local dates a month, so keep an eye out for more dates to be added.

Self described as being influenced by bands like Oasis, the Beatles, and The New Pornographers. You can hear it. I think they sound like The Kinks with the distortion turned up. It works. I was digging on their track “Give Up The Ghost”. Have a listen at the band’s myspace page.

Tomorrow night, Thursday May 21st @ Cobra Lounge 9PM. They are also playing a number of other upcoming area shows:
June 11 @ Cal’s 9PM
July 1 @ Red Line Tap 8PM
Sept 14 @ Elbo Room 10PM

Get a taste of their tunes and get out to a show.

  1. Is that the David Mertz from Evanston hockey? Red Line Tap might be fun...thanks for the news.

  2. It is the same David Mertz that starred for the Wildkits icers way back when.
