About this Event

$10 // 21+


Oui Ennui’s work builds sonic mazes that lead listeners on a dizzying chase through instrumental hip hop, synth explorations, drones, zones, and everything in between. He’s a chameleon at times, shifting modes depending on where the muse lands, but always finding the magic touch that produces vivid images through sound.

One of the more quietly indefatigable figures of the pandemic, he released an album on every Bandcamp Friday for a year. His work has taken in a protean range of styles and concepts, from psycho-geographic nostalgia to character sketches of the animal imagination and his free-wheeling, confessional liner notes and regular newsletter updates are often miniature works of art in themselves. Oui Ennui is a ceaselessly inventive figure who should be commanding much wider recognition.


Drasi is an electronic music project consisting of Chris Kalis (synths, drum machines, samples) and Lisa Armstrong (synths, vocals), who are also members of the band Chandeliers. Influenced by 90s dance music, ambient film scores, and cosmic phenomena, Drasi songs incorporate analog and digital synthesizers tuned to resonate with the electromagnetic frequencies of the Earth. The resulting layers of sequenced rotations offer the listener a transcendent experience.

Beginning Monday, August 9

Empty Bottle will require all staff, patrons, and performers to provide :

* Proof of full vaccination


* A negative COVID-19 PCR test performed within the previous 72 hours prior to entry.

Hard copies, photocopies, or digital photos of the above are acceptable. 

Masks will be worn by staff at all times and will be required of all attendees when not eating or drinking — regardless of vaccination status.

This is a very difficult time for everyone to navigate and we understand that you may be frustrated. We are as well. Please bear with us as we try to keep our staff, artists, patrons, and the City of Chicago safe -- as best we can. Remember that we are all going through this together as a community, and we can beat this if we work together as a community.
