chickfactor25

Beloved music fanzine chickfactor is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year with a “series of fortunate events” happening in NYC, London, and Portland, OR. The NYC shows will be the first to happen, two of them at Union Pool on November 2 & 4Tickets for both Union Pool shows are on sale now.

The 11/2 show features Kicking Giant (who rarely play live and haven’t played NYC in ages), The Pacific Ocean (members of Versus and Containe), Bridget St. John, and Honeybunch (Jeffrey Underhill of Velvet Crush), plus host Sukhdev Sandhu.

The 11/4 show, which is a Saturday matinee, has Laura Cantrell, Joe Pernice, Cotton Candy (aka Unrest’s Mark Robinson and Blast Off Country Style’s Evelyn Hurley) and “very special guests.” Chickfactor contributor and WFMU DJ Gaylord Fields is your host for the day.

There are two Portland events: December 9 at Bunk Bar with ’90s Slumberland band Rocketship, Kites at Night (featuring Rose Melberg of The Softies) and Lida Husik (tickets); and then and “indiepop brunch” on December 10 at  Toffee Club with DJ sets from chickfactor editor Gail O’Hara, Rose Melberg and Janice Headley.

The UK is getting probably the most notable chickfactor 25 shows, a two-night main event at The Lexington on November 11 & 12 with The Pastels, The Softies, Stevie Jackson (Belle & Sebastian), Would Be Goods, Catenary Wires (ex Heavenly). and more. Full details on all the chickfactor 25 shows are listed below.
