Elmwood Park Bands to rock The Metro Aug. 29

The Metro will host local bands Hero In Eden and The Native Strangers on August 29th. For more information, read the following release:

Elmwood Park is home to two of Chicago’s most promising up and coming rock acts: Hero In Eden and The Native Strangers. These two bands will perform together at The Metro, one of Chicago’s biggest live music venues, on Friday, August 29th. Tickets are available online at metrochicago.com or in person from all of the band members mentioned in the article. The Metro is located at 3730 N. Clark St. just north of Wrigley Field.

Hero In Eden has been chosen to headline the show after a string of successful performances at local venues such as the Bottom Lounge, Wire, The Friendly Tap, and Fizz. Hero In Eden started with two brothers, Greg and Tony Okal (St. Pat’s ’04 & ’06), looking to do great things. Tom Johnson (Fenwick ’10), Paul Samatas (St. Pat’s ’14), and Dave Centeno (St. Pat’s ’06) joined the band with the same passion and a shared vision.

Hero In Eden’s brand of original rock brings a much-needed emphasis on accessible melodies, intriguing lyrics, and impressive musicianship to the Chicago music scene. When asked to define themselves, Hero In Eden simply asks fans to come and hang out, experience the music, and decide for themselves. So head out to the Metro 8/29, watch the show, meet the guys, and enjoy the music. Everyone will be friends by the end of the night. They promise. You can get a preview of the single, “Wither”, at the band’s website: www.heroineden.com.

The Native Strangers also formed in Elmwood Park when members Nick Militello, Brett Sassetti, Tom Johnson, and Joe DeAngelis met at St. Vincent Ferrer. Getting to know The Native Strangers is simple. They are a rock band from Elmwood Park, and they live to melt faces.
