We Are Wolves to Take a Bite Out of Chicago

By Randy J. Klodz

Montreal-based indie-rock band We Are Wolves brings 80s new-wave beats to the forefront with its bouncy album “Non-Stop Je Te Plie en Deux” while drawing critical acclaim worldwide along the way. We Are Wolves will invade Chicago’s Empty Bottle on the band’s current headlining tour on Nov. 2.

We Are Wolves--a trio which, as most accounts have it, prefers to not reveal the names of each member--plays songs with titles like “Little Birds,” “Nonstop,” and “Snare Me” which glisten with a video game noises meets glam-rock sheen.

Though Canada isn’t the typical breeding ground for electronic-tinged rock bands, the Great White North has spawned such new-wave rockers as Victoria, British Columbia’s Hot Hot Heat and fellow Montreal natives The Dears, a band in which plays more of an indie-rock breed of tune, each of which have drawn steady fanfare.

Empty Bottle is at 1035 N. Western Ave. Tickets for this 21+ show are listed for $8 with show start time scheduled for 9:30 p.m. Rock bands Vanishing Kids and Dirty Faces are also scheduled to perform. For more info on We Are Wolves log on to www.wearewolves.net.
