Red Corduroy Music Lands Two Acts at International Pop Overthrow Chicago, April 25-26

LOUISVILLE, KY – April 10, 2013 – Louisville, Ky.-based Red Corduroy Music announced today that two acts on the label will perform at International Pop Overthrow in Chicago on April 25 and 26.

Nick Peay, the label’s founder, and his band will perform Friday, April 26, as part of a seven-band lineup; meanwhile, the Uncommon Houseflies, who also played the festival in 2012, will perform Thursday, April 25. IPO, in its 14th year doing power-pop music festivals all over the U.S. and in the U.K., will be held at Red Line Tap in Chicago.

Peay will perform songs from his newest EP Feathers & Fables, along with some power-pop gems of the past. Songs like the Gin Blossoms-esque “(Two Miserable) Blackbirds” will be a natural for melody-craving IPO attendees.

Meanwhile, the Uncommon Houseflies will bring their off-the-wall brand of power-pop to IPO Chicago for the second straight year, and will be promoting a forthcoming Red Corduroy release titled Hipster Apocalypse.

“We’re honored to be performing at a long-standing and respected festival like International Pop Overthrow,” said Peay, who launched Red Corduroy in 2010. “I know the Uncommon Houseflies and I are looking forward to it, and our hope is to bring more Red Corduroy acts to IPO in the future.”

“I’m definitely pleased to be having Nick Peay and The Uncommon Houseflies play the International Pop Overthrow festival,” David Bash, the festival’s founder and promoter, said. “Nick is a fine singer-songwriter who I’m looking forward to seeing for the first time, and The Uncommon Houseflies brought so much fun to IPO Chicago last year with their humor-inflected power pop that I couldn’t help but invite them back!”

International Pop Overthrow Chicago runs from April 18-27 at the Red Line Tap, 7006 N. Glenwood Ave. Cover charge is $10 per night.

Red Corduroy Music was founded by musician Nick Peay in 2010 as a way to get his and other indie musicians’ music to a wider audience outside the Louisville, Ky., area. Red Corduroy offers not only music business consulting and PR, but also recording services. For more information, visit
