Chi-Tunes: Nonagon

(Annie Brinkman )
February 06, 2012

Chicago rockers Nonagon answered our Chi-Tunes questionnaire. Do the same and your band could appear in RedEye!

What makes your live show great?

We never phone it in. Our set is filled with inventive, loud, short, tight songs that hold your attention. We play them with conviction and considerable energy.

Describe your sound in five words or less.

Loud, choppy hooks with dissonance.

Tell us something random about the band, and why that's significant.

We're older than we look. The three of us are veterans of the Illinois noise scene, but we feel we're currently making the best and most inventive music we've ever made.

Who would you want to work with, and who would you never work with? Why?

We work well with our friends. Thankfully we have many of them and don't have to consider any unseemly options. We're fervently DIY and independent (in the older-school sense of those terms).

What's the best album you've heard recently?

Minutes' self-titled LP.

What song do you never want to hear again?

I often don't bother to learn the names of songs I don't like.

What is Chicago's best music venue and why?

Quenchers. It feels like home to us.
