Lollapalooza Week - The Bloody Beetroots

The best thing about The Bloody Beetroots is that they are constantly getting better. Starting off as a DJ duo, they more than held their own at Perry's Tent in 2009. Their brand of aggression and punk seemed like a distant cousin to Boys Noize and MSTRKRFT who followed them. As the remixes seemed to pile up for The Chemical Brothers, Shitdisco and Micky Green to name a few, the crowds increased as well. Choosing to assemble a live band and create Death Crew 77 was exactly what the fans wanted. I had a chance to catch them at Lincoln Hall last year and I was blown away. I'm almost hesitant to even put up a sample of their music because their live set is completely different. So let's give another group some love and consider this a 2 for 1. The song is Awesome off their album Romborama and features Chicago's own Cool Kids. For a fresher look, check out the videos and prepare for a sweaty, exhausting mess... The Bloody Beetroots will destroy Perry Stage on Friday at 5pm. The Cool Kids were a late addition and are at Perry's Stage on Sunday at 3.
