About this event

Glad Rags w/ Huxley Maxwell

Saturday, February 19, 2022

ADVANCE: $10 // DOS: $13

DOORS: 7:00PM // SHOW: 8PM

Chicago six-piece Glad Rags returns to Des Moines for the first time since 2019. They are touring throughout the Spring in support of their debut LP 'ALL OF THEM' released in October.

The concept album navigates themes of cancel culture and community responses to healing. Produced by bandleader Mable Gladly, it was released through their label Sinkhole Sounds and mastered by Jake Viator (Jerry Paper, MNDSGN, Julia Holter). Embroidering disparate influences into an original art pop mosaic has become the group's signature style.

Formed in 2015 in Chicago's DIY scene, their first releases came through underground label Grandpa Bay (Water From Your Eyes, Mykele Deville, This Is Lorelei) before setting off to record their acclaimed follow-up 'Wonder Under' through local label Midwest Action. While joined by fourteen collaborators on their studio projects, Glad Rags keeps their live shows raw with high-energy interpretations of their songs that truly defy genre. They have shared stages with Sen Morimoto, Hop Along, Nnamdï, Speedy Ortiz, Post Animal, The Oh My's, Sloppy Jane, The Ophelias, The Beths, ONO, Emily Blue, Tasha, White Mystery, GIRL K, Andrew Sa, No Men, Emily Blue, GRLwood + Resavoir.

The core members write and arrange collaboratively to create an original blend of art rock, disco, new wave, psych pop, and experimental jazz. They’ve been featured by Bandcamp, Bust Magazine, Chicago Tribune, The Reader, and were recently dubbed “One of Chicago’s most promising queer bands” by the Windy City Times.
