Halsted Street – Chicago, IL 60614Date: Thursday – November 9th, 2017Time: Doors 8pm / Show 9pmTickets: $15adv / $20dos (Purchase tickets here) Israeli livetronica act G-Nome Project—composed of keyboardist Eyal Salomon, guitarist Shlomo Langer, bassist Zechariah Reich, and drummer Chemy Soibelman—has taken their local scene by storm, selling out venues in their hometown, all the way to Tel Aviv with their brand of electro-funk. However, the G-Nome Project does not always get the chance to make it stateside, so when they do, it’s always a treat. This fall, the group is embarking on a tour across the United States, with thirteen dates currently laid out. During this upcoming fall tour, the group will its triumphant return to Chicago, with a special performance at the Tonic Room on Thursday, November 9th. (Purchase tickets here).In an interview with L4LM earlier this year, Salomon describes the burgeoning Israeli music scene and the inherently American roots of jam music: “The Israeli music scene has actually been on an upswing. The indie scene has produced some great bands recently. Trance is huge here. So is Jazz and Pop. Here in Jerusalem, the city sponsors multiple huge pop-up street concerts each month. But that is usually all very mainstream music. I think there’s something inherently American about the jam scene. It’s not only lacking in Israel; it’s pretty much lacking everywhere in the world outside of America (and Canada). This was one of the things that inspired us to create G-Nome.” You can take a listen to the full audio of G-Nome Project’s performance at Nectar’s in Burlington, Vermont, on September 1st, 2015, to get a taste of the magic that’ll be going down in Chicago early next month. Tickets for G-Nome Project’s show at Tonic Room on Thursday, Nov. 7th are currently on-sale and can be purchased here.
