From Chicago, Illinois…

THE DEAD WOODS


“We started off wanting to make a sonically unique, unpolished rock album.

I believe we did exactly that.”

Those are strong words, coming from Mark Wendell,

singer/guitarist for Chicago’s The Dead Woods.

However, the power trio has worked for years to build a reputation to back them up—

they’re known as much for their uncompromising commitment

to their craft as they are for their unpredictable and chaotic live shows. 

Throwing guitars and drums around is a rock tradition,

but it doesn’t work if destroying the stage is the only thing a band is good at;

fortunately The Dead Woods put the emphasis on the songs; trashing the joint is just for fun.

and then at 9:30pm

Abilene Late Night Sessions continue with…

MEG GEHMAN & THE INFLUENCE


Meg’s first solo CD, Leap, debuted July 2015. She calls it “a shameless pop record,

heavily influenced by R&B and rock. Catchy mid-to-uptempo pop music co-written

with my producer, sony platinum-selling R&B artist, David Chance (formerly of the R&B duo Ruff Endz).

You will hear so many influences on this record, and I would have to say

that the strongest influence for this project would be David himself.”

Meg has delighted audiences for years as the leader of Meg and The Clams and then This Other Life.
