Lemuria, Into it Over It, Chalk Staff Pick

When: Mon., Dec. 8, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: $12
Touring as a band probably dares the universe to cause weird shit to happen, and in the case of Lemuria, the Buffalo, N.Y.-based indie-rock/punk trio's misadventures on one particular tour were so outrageous that they warranted having a comic book written about them. Out Dec. 9, the new project is a comic book & 7-inch EP combo that's the third in the Turnstyle Comix series by Mitch Clem and Nation of Amanda. The story details Lemuria's tour of Russia in 2001, which, according to the band's website, was apparently not without "violent Nazis, crooked cops, mobster shakedowns, gunshots, a tropical storm, rabid dogs and a substandard German pizza." The EP consists of two new songs, "Christine Perfect" and "Foggy Smoke," which, like all of Lemuria's work, showcase the band's fascinating juxtaposition of airy female vocals with thudding drums and chugging guitar. Also on the bill is Into It. Over It.—the solo project of Chicago musician Evan Thomas Weiss—and local punk band Chalk. (Kolbie Stonehocker)
