Stoop Goodnoise, A band building, wrecking, and rebuilding again as they lead the way in the new Chicago Rock & Roll scene. Chicago has always been a city of collided cultures coming together to form something amazing and there is no band that encapsulates this like Stoop Goodnoise. A facepunch of 90's grunge fury, punk choruses, and intergalactic guitar solos. One part Chicago street kids, one part classic rock phenoms, but all one original sound that can not be missed, that can not be ignored, that cannot be stopped. 
They have played at numerous clubs around Chicago like Bottom Lounge, Beat Kitchen and House of Blues and have gone as far as being one of the three finalists in the MTV VMA 2009 Best Breakout Chicago Artist Contest where they supported All Time Low & White Tie Affair at Six Flags Great America. They're set from that day was also featured on Comcast On Demand for the entire city of chicago to view at the push of a button.
They released debut self titled EP produced by Wuli Records CEO Louis Svitek (Ministry,Mindfunk,M.O.D.) & Ten23 Studios CEO Ryan McGuire (Lee Dewyze) that was released on March 17th 2010. Had air play on Q101’s Local 101 with the song “First Names”.
They are an Endorsed Artist by Steve Clayton Guitar Picks & Accessories as of January 2012 & were finalists in the Elbo Room’s I AM Fest Battle of the Bands.
They recorded they’re debut full length album titled “Crash Me, Cloud” released on January 28th 2012 at Million Yen Studios in Chicago. Produced by Brian Tepps & Dave Lugo of Sciphonic Productions.

The Right Now // UVPZ 6.30


8:30 // THE RIGHT NOW


There are only so many times you can take back that cheating lover or accept excuses from a lazy scrub. It’s easier said than done, but one soul band is taking a stand. The Right Now isn’t going to take it anymore. The Right Now is fed up. And on their second record, The Right NowGets Over You.
The challenging title is a reality check, but delivered with a smile from singer Stefanie Berecz. “It’s just a representation of the stories in the songs. Nearly every track has a cheating character, or someone who’s had enough of their lover. It’s a mixed bag of empowerment and regret.” Gets Over You continues the “it’s complicated” theme of 2010′s Carry Me Home, although this outing shows Berecz in a darker, seedier role.
Recorded in a cathartic, week-long session in Los Angeles with producer Sergio Rios (Orgone), Gets Over You takes the Chicago septet’s soulful sound to the warm, crackling world of analog tape and vintage instruments. Berecz’s voice, often compared to those of Chaka Kahn and Joss Stone, takes center stage. The band shines with raw, gritty performances and elegant arrangements that are the result of countless hours of performing, rehearsing, and traveling together.
Berecz’s emotionally-charged vocal performance has been the band’s calling card at over 200 shows in the past two years. The Right Now’s electrifying live show — matching suits, choreographed horn section, and all — has earned them a reputation as “dynamic, complex, hip and just downright fun” (Gapers Block).
The past two years saw immense growth for The Right Now, including a sold-out release party at Chicago’s Lincoln Hall; tour dates throughout the Midwest, East, and South; festival appearances at SXSW, North Coast Festival, and Summerfest; and opening stints for Fitz & The Tantrums, George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic, Bettye Lavette, Otis Clay, Orgone, Kings Go Forth, Jamie Lidell, and Tortured Soul. USA Today, MP3.com, MySpace Music, and eMusic.com have featured the band as a favorite, and live TV appearances (WGN) put the Chicago act on the national stage. Placements in 90210 and CSI: Crime Scene Investigationand promos for Gilly Hicks and other national retailers also broadened the band’s appeal.
“It takes a man to admit that it’s over,” Berecz confidently croons on “Half As Much.” “But if you can’t, I can do it for sure.” While Stefanie Berecz may have gotten over the man in this song, audiences won’t be getting over her any time soon.

The Kuhls // UVPZ 6.30

9:30 // THE KUHLS


The Kuhls is the collaborative project of sisters Renee and Grace Kuhl, brought to life by their kickass monster-slaying,demon-defying rock band. Raised in Kansas, now based in Chicago, the sisters enlist their friends in some explicit urban guitar slashing while unconsciously maintaining a firm grip on their roots. Their first full-length album Holy Rollin was released independently in February 2013. Holy Rollin' features twelve songs that span the Kuhls' diverse sonic influences... 90s grunge/70s rock n roll/country western/girl pop all find meeting places in the songwriting of these Midwest-raised sisters."It’s a nasty bit of business, in the country-tinged rock ballad tradition of the Rolling Stones or Gram Parsons... “Holy Rollin’ ” documents the newfound grit in the guitars and vocals in songs both bittersweet and biting." - Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune "...an intriguing conflation of folk, country and rock that finds fresh ways to showcase that familiar combination." - TimeOut Chicago
