After moving to Chicago with a bunch of songs and 4-track recordings in 1999, Thomas Comerford founded and led the indie rock outfit Kaspar Hauser over a series of lineups and LP releases in the 2000s. By 2010, he was also playing “solo” shows with a number of backing musicians and releasing his own LPs, including Archive + Spiral in 2011 and II in 2014. The music, songs and singing on these LPs have been compared to the likes of Jeff Tweedy and Tom Waits (USA Today). Recently, he released his third solo LP, Blood Moon, on his Spacesuit Records. Featuring Comerford’s baritone—and occasional falsetto—in the midst of largely acoustic or gently electric arrangements, 3-part backing vocals and duets, the LP was deemed a “notable new release” by No Depression and “worth the 4-year wait ... a bucolic Lou Reed” by the Chicago Reader. For his return to the Hungry Brain, Comerford will play songs from Blood Moon and other songs from his solo LPs, backed by Gregg Ostrom, Curtis Ruptash, Erik Sowa along with some special guest vocalists TBA.

Led by songwriters John Gargiulo and Lee Ketch, Contorno melds jangle rock with explosive Crazy Horse guitar workouts and healthy doses of Chicago alt-country twang. They are currently recording their debut album with Robbie Hamilton at Strange Magic Recording. Their single, "Bottle to the Blue," was featured on WXRT's "Local Anesthetic."
