January 7, 2012- Third Wave + Population + Unur

Posted in Uncategorized on January 3, 2012 by psomeguy


We’ll be playing records before, between, and after Live performances by Chicago’s own, POPULATION and UNUR.  The place is called 10 Doors and is located at 1259 W. Taylor St.  The normal trio of Robby, Theo and Patrick will be joined by Lauren from STARING PROBLEM, that just means more good songs will get played.  See you there!

The Third Wave + Scary Movie Party 8 + Gel Set @ The Whistler! Oct 30!

Posted in bands, DJ nights on October 17, 2011 by psomeguy

SCARY MOVIE PARTY – Narrative, experimental, music video, all angles of the dark and horrific from a pool of international filmmakers. www.scarymovieparty.com

Gel Set- fantastic, unsettling, noir-wave from right here in Chicago www.soundcloud.com/gel-set

The Third Wave (That’s us!) – Robby, Theo and Patrick envelop your eardrums with the best and bleakest of their record collections. Coldwave, Minimal Synth, Post-Punk, Goth, New Wave, perfect for dancing in the dark (but not in a Springsteen kind of way).

Plus! For one night only, the walls of the Whistler will be adorned with images of gore-filled delight by Jessi T. Walsh’s “The Grotesque Burlesque” www.thegrotesqueburlesque.tumblr.com

Come out, get dark. Be awesome.



The Third Wave presents: Catholics And The Pill @ the Whistler

Posted in bands, DJ nights on July 7, 2011 by psomeguy

You may remember Catholics And The Pill as the first song on the Modern Tapes Mix Tape from the giveaway the last time the Third Wave hit the Whistler.  Or you know them as consisting of two members of the amazing Staring Problem.  Maybe you just want to come and listen to Robby, Theo and Patrick spin minimal synth, coldwave, post-punk and new wave records.  Maybe you just want one of the snazzy drinks at the Whistler, either way, it’s free and will be a night to remember.  BYOMB (bring your own make-out booth).
