Cosmic Bull Record Release Show

11PM: Krononaut plays heavy downtempo psychedelic prog-rock; ‘chamber music for the end-of-times’.

Midnight: Cosmic Bull’s Band Substances (to be released on Friday, March 8) features the single “Once the Dust Settles.”

Cosmic Bull’s debut full-length LP, Band Substances, was recorded live with minimal overdubs at Rax Trax studios in Chicago by producer/engineer/proprietor Rick Barnes.

Cosmic Bull began as a studio recording project based on the songwriting of Mark Vickery, who returned to the local Chicago music scene in 2022 after a 20-year hiatus. He produced two EPs — 27X2 and Hangin’ in the I.P., produced by Scott Tallarida at Trigger Chicago and Paul Von Mertens at Octavio Music, respectively.
Subsequently, he put together a four-piece band to support this material; after putting together a few solo acoustic sets at Chicago venues The Hideout and Montrose Saloon, Vickery and the full Cosmic Bull band have performed over the past year at Lizard’s Liquid Lounge and Northman River Walk.
