Epitonic’s Deep Freeze Festival takes place this weekend (Meat Wave, Tight Phantomz, Bloodiest & more)


Epitonic‘s inaugural Deep Freeze Festival is slated to take place on Friday, January 31 and Saturday, February 1 at Wicker Park venues Subterranean and Double Door. The festival aims to celebrate “local Chicago artists in Chicago weather, while local artists are doing less touring, and locals are looking to get out of the house.” Its lineup features scrappy, melodic punks Meat Wave, Bruce Lamont’s genre-straddling Bloodiest, anthemic indie rockers Carbon Tigers, gritty, alt-country outfit Shiloh, and many more acts, plus comedy. You can check out the full Deep Freeze Fest schedule below, which makes use of both the upstairs and downstairs of the two venues. Two-day festival passes are still available and you could also purchase tickets for each individual show.
