Kerosene Stars play IPO 2023

Montrose Saloon, 2933 W Montrose, Chicago

We're so darn proud to announce that International Pop Overthrow will make it's triumphant return to the Windy City for its 20th year, from April 21 through 29, with all shows to be held once again at the rockin' venue, Montrose Saloon! IPO Chicago will feature more than 60 of the best pop and rock artists from Chicago and beyond!

April 29th afternoon lineup:

2:00 Dizzy Bridges 2:45 Michael Steven Cohen 3:30 Kerosene Stars 4:15 Rollo Time 5:00 Otter Petter 5:45 The Jeremy Band

"Pat Stone & The Dirty Boots play it similar to acts like Uncle Tupelo and Old 97’s. That is to say it’s often rock (or even punk) masquerading as a country band, often times not even in a very comprehensive disguise. While they may be hiding a bunch of tattoos under their flannels, Pat Stone and his band of merry ramblers deftly keep things gritty and a little dust-covered in the way that all the best alt country acts are able to." - Chip McCabe, www.themetaldad.com
