What happens when you combine the Soviettes, Banner Pilot, Dear Landlord, and the Salteens? First off, you get a party where a lot of longtime friends come together. The Gateway District will celebrate their second full-length, Perfect's Gonna Fail, with a release show at the Turf Club, and you can bet there will be a strong community vibe for the supergroup's set. The band has been playing together since 2006, often in spurts as their other projects take them on the road. For the new record, they've honed their approach and unified the band's sound, drawing familiar elements from their other projects, but with a distinct pep, frustration, and, ultimately, renewal that comes through the dual vocals of Maren Macosko and Carrie Bleser. Also on the bill are Chicago's Arrivals, recent Epitaph signees Off With Their Heads, and the Fake Boys.
