Bruised Broken Band LIVE
with Scout Ripley

8:00 p.m. (7:30 doors)
The Frontier Theatre – 1106 W. Thorndale Ave.
Join Chicago Local 134 for two local music acts with connections to the Chicago Red Stars community. Scout Ripley (feat. Claire Watkins) will open, followed by Bruised Broken Band (feat. Yuki Nagasato). Doors open at 7:30 PM, the show will begin at 8:00 PM. A percentage of proceeds from this event will benefit the NWSL Players Association.
Bruised Broken Band is a fearless blend of pulsating garage-rock rhythm and sound, blended into an ill-tempered southern blues moonshine that will leave you with a feeling of excitement and fire. Bruised & Broken started off with influences varying all the way from classic / punk rock titans, to the great compositional masters that are the bedrock of all things music. Its artists include Chicago Red Stars player Yuki Nagasato, a Japanese instrumentalist who’s teamed up with Chicago natives in an effort to create high energy performance pieces designed to please your earbuds and soothe your soul.
