Lunar Ticks are an eclectic Improvisational/Alternative Rock band from Chicago, IL.
They have built a word-of-mouth following by performing at The Park West, The Metro, Lincoln Hall, Chop Shop and headlining Sleeping Village, Martyr's and Subterranean. We have had the pleasure of playing with Pink Talking Fish, Aqueous, Mungion, Fate Nite, Woody Goss of Vulfpeck, and Joel Cummins of Umphrey's McGee. We have played clubs and festivals all over the country, including multiple years at Shoe Fest and Summer Camp Music Festival. 2021 was a great year for LT. Playing Park West with Pink Talking Fish, starting a concert series in Independence Park, a run of shows on the East Coast, and they were even included in an immersive art exhibit at Chicago's world-famous WNDR Museum.
The band is influenced by the songwriting and studio experimentation of 90's and 2000's innovative Alternative/Indie rock bands like Wilco, My Morning Jacket, The Flaming Lips, Ween, Yo La Tengo, Pavement, and Dr. Dog, and fuses it with genre-bending, progressive musicality, and exploratory improvisations in the vein of The Grateful Dead, Phish, and Umphrey's McGee.
Lunar Ticks are equally at home on a bill with a folk singer, punk band, free jazz ensemble, you name it. Each setlist is formed from their diverse and expansive song list of originals and covers; debuting new material at almost every show. Extended improvisational passages can turn on a dime or meditate and unfurl in unexpected ways. Lunar Ticks aim to create a unique and memorable experience every time they pick up their instruments.
