Brigitte Calls Me Baby has been on a roll the past 12 months. The Chicago five-piece has notched USA gigs opening for Muse and the Last Dinner Party, as well as sharing the stage with the Strokes and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

The post punk rockers bring their fresh take on the sounds of the ’80s to DC9 tonight, Friday, Feb. 16. Few tix remain to check out these rising young stars!

The band’s unusual path began when frontman and songwriter Wes Leavins moved from Texas to Chicago after high school. After arriving in Chicago, he joined forces with bassist Devin Wessels, drummer Jeremy Benshish, and guitarists Trevor Lynch and Jack Fluegel. The group began gigging locally when Graceland came calling. Leavins was recruited to record music for Baz Luhrmann’s 2022 film Elvis. While on set, he met the Grammy-winning producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile) and the two hit it off. Cobbs produced the band’s first EP, The House Is Made of Corners.

With the release of their debut EP this past November, Brigitte Calls Me Baby has been featured in NME, Q Magazine and Flood to name a few. WXPN just named them their “February Artist of the Month” and the group will make their national television debut on CBS Saturday Morning later this month.
