About this Event

7:30pm Lights Out Chicago: The Music of UFO and The Michael Schenker Group

9:00pm SPONGE

SPONGE:

Sponge has proven to be one of the Motor City's heaviest hitters after gaining international notoriety with their debut album "Rotting Piñata” (Sony). Emerging from Detroit with hits like "Plowed" and "Molly (16 Candles)" Sponge received massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV. Both “Plowed” and “Molly” hit #5 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Charts, catapulting “Rotting Piñata” to Gold, and ultimately Platinum status.

Sponge's follow up CD, the critically lauded “Wax Ecstatic” (Columbia) scored additional top ten Billboard hits including "Wax Ecstatic" and "Have You Seen Mary?" The band’s music was also featured in popular movies “The Craft,” “Chasing Amy,” “Mall Rats” and “Empire Records.” Sponge’s star continued to rise with network appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and the “Conan O’Brien Show.”

Sponge’s subsequent releases “New Pop Sunday,” “For All The Drugs in The World,” “The Man,” “Galore Galore,” and “Destroy the Boy,” showcased the band’s swirling sonic attack, rooted in 70's glam and of course, the Motor City influences of The Stooges, The MC5 and Motown-but still sounding distinctly like no one else.

“Plowed” continues to be the band’s signature rock track, having been spotlighted on Guitar Hero’s “Warriors of Rock – 90’s Rock Track Pack” – and on the Paper Jamz Guitar Series 2, in addition to the soundtrack for the Gerard Butler surf movie “Chasing Mavericks.”

SPONGE: 25th Anniversary "Rotting Pinatas" Tour at 210 Live

LIGHTS OUT CHICAGO

Formed in late 2007, Lights Out Chicago replicates the music of UFO in meticulous detail. Fans that see the band will hear the entire "Strangers in the Night" played with the same fire and passion as we to take you back to a very memorable night when UFO invaded the Chicago Amphitheater on October 13th 1978.

LIGHTS OUT CHICAGO plays classic to deep cut UFO and MSG songs like no other UFO/MSG Tribute Band can....paying particular attention to the details of each song that separate us from any other UFO/MSG Tribute band!!!
