Tonight the Wicker Park branch of Dimo’s Pizza is hosting a benefit show for the inaugural Fed Up Fest, a DIY queercore extravaganza that’s going down at the end of the month. The bill features Arugula, Boots, and the Valenteens, who are behind today’s 12 O’Clock Track, “Mile Marker.” It’s a scorching punk tune that’s got some hardcore coursing through it; the song sits on the right side of the pop-punk fence and it fits in neatly with the rest of the band’s Fun in the Sun With . . . , which local microlabel High Fashion Industries released in May.
Stream “Mile Marker” below, and be sure to head to Dimo’s at 9 PM. The show is free, but you can also donate some cash to the folks behind Fed Up Fest or help by eating some pizza—a dollar of every slice sold tonight will be donated to the fest.
