Fifth Story Tickets

Fifth Story is an indie rock band consisting of three friends that have developed an adventurous approach to songwriting. Formed in Chicago in early 2007, Richard (guitar), Jason (Bass/Vocals), & Michael (Drums) have spent much of the past two years rendering their music into a live atmosphere and developing a loyal fan base along the way. Drawing upon the melodies of J.Mascis of Dinosaur Jr., experimental guitar styles similar to Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, and coupled with the melodic undertones comparable to Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses, Fifth Story have established a catalog of well crafted, powerful songs. With the addition of a strong DIY ethos and energetic live performances, the band has rapidly reached the top of Chicago's buzz charts. In 2009 Fifth Story released its debut self-titled EP that quickly landed them headlining spots at many of Chicago's premier venues including The Elbo Room, The Bottom Lounge, Reggies Rock Club, and Double Door. The same year Fifth Story was selected as a feature artist during Chicago's Mobfest showcase. In addition, their song Pretty Scene was a choice track on The Radio One / Windy City Records Compilation, and the band performed live on University of Illinois' Hidden Treasures of Rock and Roll Show. In January of 2010 the band released a double ep, This Day Will Come and Seasides hosting the release party to a sold out audience at the Lasalle Power Co. Currently Fifth Story is touring in support of their latest EP release with the intention of building a national fan base and securing their place in independent music. The band is also planning the release of its first full length LP in 2010. Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
