Glitter Creeps presents A Benefit for The Clinic Vest Project!
Lasers and Fast and Sh!t
CELEBRATING THE BIRTH OF MADISON MOORE ON THIS NIGHT! ????????
Glitter Creeps is tearing 2017 UP! This Rock/Punk/New Wave queer night has been throwing some of the best damn parties around since bringing their party to the Bottle. Hosted and co-curated by siblings Donnie & Madison Moore of ABSOLUTELY NOT, the monthly showcase was declared Best punk-rock LGBTQ night in Chicago Reader's 2015 Best Of issue and was included in Chicagoist's Best Queer Nightlife In Chicago. Each month brings new and exciting bands from Chicago and beyond to perform on our stage and we're stoked for the lineup that they've put together tonight, which will double as a benefit for The Clinic Vest Project.
The mission of The Clinic Vest Project is to provide FREE clinic escort vests to groups that service facilities that support the full range of reproductive health options including safe and legal abortion. They also offer free training materials to groups that need them. Why support this organization? The Clinic Vest Project is mailing out vests at a rapid rate that not even they anticipated, and they couldn't be happier! Neither could we. They have shipped out vests to over 100 facilities in 36 states at this point! They have also shipped vests to the UK and Canada.

LASERS AND FAST AND SH!T returns after opening for FAKE LIMBS back in February. LASERS is known across Chicago for playing an engaging mixture of punk abandon with a healthy dose of stoner metal's nodding and self-knowing winks. Live, the band is a force to be reckoned with, and you should absolutely expect lasers, smoke, no shit, and some brand new songs that will only further elevate the LASERS' fiery, art-damaged punk sound. Bottle first-timers FITNESS bring a beefed-up blend of punk, grunge, NOT garage rock and twin guitars. Push-ups? Rarely. Whiskey pulls? Regularly. Their self-titled EP, Fitness, on Weiner Records (a subsidiary label of Burger Records) was released Summer, 2015 and can be streamed on Bandcamp. Kicking the evening off is Chicago's KODAKROME, a synthpunk electropunk trio ready to party.
