Markus Maticic w/ Busy Bodies & Pan and The Lost Boys - 6PM | $10

  • Uncommon Ground (EDGEWATER) 1401 W Devon Ave Chicago, IL 60660 USA (map)


Singer/songwriter Markus Maticic tells authentic stories while attempting to sell coffee mugs door to door. It's a hard life but if you ask him he'll tell you he's happy. And he means it. He wants you to be happy, too, so if you tell him a free coffee mug will make you happy, he'll probably give you one.

Playing together since high school, the members of Busy Bodies combine heartfelt songwriting and a taste for vocal harmony with grit and humor. Following the lead of groups like the Band, Wilco, Fleet Foxes, they aren't content to stick with one particular genre or even one lead singer. Busy Bodies always play an eclectic show that delivers something for everyone. They are currently working on their debut release.

Pan and The Lost Boys is a Chicago-based fusion band held together by bass molds to each tune and vocal melody. Their violin takes solo, lead, or takes a seat comfortably in the open spaces; their keys insert just-right synths, or gospel-influenced piano; our guitar, melodically led melodic, grounds our tunes in structure and leads you through colorful chord progressions.
