The Boss is Back for Black Wednesday! 

Thanks to everyone who bought tickets - it's going to be a great night!

The night before Thanksgiving is traditionally the biggest bar night of the year, and Tributosaurus has established a tradition too.  We love this show more than any other, and we’re going to keep bringing it to you as long as you want it - The Boss.  Springsteen is famous for his live shows, and we will strive to deliver that energy and joy to the crowd at Wire on Wednesday, November 25th. We will be visiting the raw early E Street jams, and the more thoughtful introspective Bruce of later years, and everything in between. This is a show for the dyed-in-the-wool Springsteen acolyte, as well as the casual fan - all of what makes him an American Icon is here, and it all rocks.  Horns, strings, multiple guitars and keys, and a few special guests to boot - all in a state of the art room designed for your comfort and fun - what could be better?  This show sells out every year, so don't wait too long....

Tributosaurus Becomes Bruce Springsteen
Wednesday, November 25, 9PM  (Black Wednesday) - $20

December Brings Back The Christmas Spectacular! 

Tributosaurus continues its’ latest Holiday tradition…

Almost every artist does a Christmas record, or at least a Christmas song, at some point in their career - it's an industry tradition - and Tributosaurus has performed a great many of them in their travels.  With this wealth of musical Christmas spirit at their fingertips, it seems only right that they polish them up and bring them to you to celebrate.

You'll know and remember many of them - from The Kinks and Bruce Springsteen to James Taylor and Paul McCartney, and they will also add a few that were missed in the regular course of things, but that they think should be included, and it will make for a magical Holiday night, so come on out and sip a little nog while we rock in the Holidays!

NEW YEARS EVE SHOWS ANNOUNCED! Dec 31, Jan 1, and Jan 2 

And you may ask yourself, what are my plans for New Year’s Eve?

Letting the days go by between now and the end of 2015, when Tributosaurus becomes Talking Heads for a 3 night run across our 2 home clubs.

Join us at Wire in Berwyn on Thursday December 31st and Friday January 1st, and then at Martyrs in Chicago on Saturday January 2nd, as we inhabit the musical souls of David Byrne and company.  You will dance, we will play, and 2016 will be welcomed with style and substance.

Talking Heads came together as art students Byrne, Tina Weymouth, and Chris Frantz were enrolled at the Rhode Island School Of Design in the mid 70’s.  They added Jerry Harrison from Jonathan Richman’s band, The Modern Lovers.   Having made their way into the heart of the New York City punk scene, they were quite a contrast from the headliner at their first CBGB’s gig; The Ramones. 

Psycho Killer took the radio world by storm.  On further albums, they’d work with legendary producer Brian Eno.  Adrian Belew would elevate the guitar skills, and Parliament keyboardist Bernie Worrell would elevate the soul factor exponentially.  Talking Heads became one of the biggest critical and commercial successes of the 80’s.

You’ve heard the songs for years, noticing the unique mix of art rock, funk, afrobeat, and punk that made them the very embodiment of “new wave.”  This music is high minded art that makes you think, funneled through killer grooves that make you move.  As always, we’ll re-create the sounds diligently, with all the necessary instrumentation.  You’ll see multiple keys rigs and guitars, and a horn section. 

You could go to some terrible New Year’s Eve Party, and you may ask yourself: Well, how did I get here?  Don’t let that night be the same as it ever was. 

Wear the biggest suit you can find, and come party with us as Talking Heads instead.
