Local H
Local H is known for their blistering live shows and for pioneering the two-man band set-up -- frontman Scott Lucas covers both guitar and bass through an extra pick up in his guitar and drummer Ryan Harding pounds out the rest of the sound. While they have earned praise in the past for their catalog of clever concept albums, Local H have forgone a singular theme on their most recent album -- Hey, Killer (out April 2015 on G&P Records) -- turning out a non-stop blast of straight-up, hooky, guitar-heavy rock songs -- each one catchier than the last. The band’s discography includes seven other studio albums, a live album, and a bunch of EPs and “Straight Outta Zion,” a Blu-ray concert video (release date 8/12/16).

Local H’s widely praised 1998 concept album Pack Up the Cats earned a spot in SPIN magazine’s top 20 albums of that year. The band was named “Chicagoans of the Year” by the Chicago Tribune for their 2008 break-up album, 12 Angry Months, more than a decade after their breakthrough hit “Bound for the Floor” ruled the Modern Rock charts. In 2015, Local H celebrated the 25th anniversary of their first show and released a career-spanning coffee table book, Local H: Twenty-Five Years of Skin In The Game. Earlier this year, they re-issued their 1996 album, As Good As Dead, on vinyl for the first time.

Some things are so timeless they almost fade into the background.

Good bourbon. A nice suit. High cheekbones and long blond hair.

Rock ‘n roll music played loud and fast and fun.

Max Cady is a rock band named after Robert DeNiro’s character in the movie Cape Fear. One of it’s members hail from Dallas, one from KC, one from DC and one from Chicago. All of them share a common goal: to remind you why you started listening to rock n roll in the first place.

Influenced by every quality hard rock band that has come before them, Max Cady has shared the stage with the Toadies, Andrew W.K. and Fu Manchu. Like those bands, Max Cady specializes in straight-ahead, riff-based rock music that’ll do exactly what a good song should do: take you out of this time and place and transport you to another one.

Max Cady’s first album, Tonight Alive, was released by Sidearm Records in 2005. The follow-up, Gun Crime, hit in 2007.

Max Cady’s most recent album, Wicked Ways, prompted Stephen Haag of Popmatters to write, “From the opening stomp of the title track to Sabbath-y centerpiece “Jimmy Swagger,” and the strutting “Bloody Fists,” there’s nothing here you haven’t blasted from your T-Bird while doing donuts in the high school parking lot, but it’s done it well…In a world that’s largely turned its back on this style of hard rock, the group’s commitment to The Riff is admirable.”

In life, there are some things so familiar that we almost forget about them – things we need to be shown, almost for the first time.

Max Cady will do that to you. Will make you remember why you fell in love with the electric guitar.

Will make you ask why you don’t go to rock n roll shows more often.

Will make you say YES to the question once asked by the character they’re named after:

“You ready to be born again?”
