with The Evening Attraction and Aged Ex-Champion
A couple a nasty boys!
The Evening Attraction are back at it again, with a new record, The End, Again! The album was released March 3, 2018 and was recorded, mixed, and produced at Treehouse Records Chicago on 2” tape.
The Chicago Bop-Rock four-piece made their debut in 2014 with a 10 track LP, Almost Desperate. Over the course of the next three years, Miles Malin, Paul Ansani, Nick Tumminello, Joey Abaroa – affectionately known as TEA, would release 4 singles, including The Kids Don’t Care, a 45” vinyl release on boutique Dallas label Classic Waxxx Records in the summer of 2016.
TEA has thrived in the deep-rooted, Chicago DIY scene. Regularly playing every major venue in Chicago, TEA has opened for national touring acts including The Mystery Lights, Post Animal, The Nude Party, The Yawpers, Night Beats, Seratones, Rayland Baxter and Little Green Cars to name a few. They toured the south with Post Animal in the summer of 2017 and made SXSW appearances in 2017 and 2018.
TEA’s recordings echo the harmonic structure of their favorite 60’s Rock and Roll groups, such as The Beach Boys and The Zombies. A vast influence from seducing Bebop era Jazz, Daptone Soul, to 60’s fuzzy garage riffs creates TEA’s formula of Rock and Roll that will make you swing, bop and bang your head. These boys’ brand of music is their expression of what they believe Rock and Roll should sound like in the modern age.
