Eight Gigs: All Eyes West
Tues., Aug. 4, 8 p.m., Blue Lamp, call for cover
The Windy City's All Eyes West formed in 2010, bringing vocalist-bassist Justin Miller and guitarist Jeff Dean (the Bomb, Noise By Numbers, the Story So Far) together, with the Arrivals' Ronnie DiCola arriving in 2014 for drum duty. Its most recent album, Doomer, hit in January of this year via Jump Start Records, and it's a punk affair for those who like their tunes just a bit darker and leaning more toward the heavier side of the musical tracks. Great Apes, Bastards of Young and Dead Dads round out the bill. 1400 Alhambra Boulevard, www.alleyeswest.com.
