American Breakfast [Chicago] — Ca Plane
I AM OBSESSED WITH AMERICAN BREAKFAST. And I don’t know why they haven’t played in Chicago since I saw them a few times this winter because I love them and want to see much more of them. Oh hey, it was just announced they’ll be playing at the Emporium in Wicker Park on May 15! Yes!!! I can’t get enough of their perfect combination of super-retro-styled garage-punk, with French and English vocals by native French woman Laure Elie, who also plays guitar, wears cool outfits and is maybe the punk daughter that Kim Gordon manifested by emulating Françoise Hardy. “Ca Plane” is a cover of a Plastic Bertrand song that you may have heard in the indie movie “Ruby Sparks.” They also do a cool French cover of “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’,” simply called “Boots” which you should check out, but their originals are awesome as well. More American Breakfast please! - Houseshow


Blending an assortment of originals with a handful of French covers, American Breakfast is four-piece band from Chicago crafting a lovably hissy and fun garage-punk sound– which can be heard on their new seven-track tape from Grabbing Clouds Records. Definitely pick one up! - Proper Yarn


Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


American Breakfast is a Logan Square, Chicago project consisting of Laure Ellie, Steve Pigozzi, Justin Vittori (Uh Bones, Slushy, The Rubs) and Ray Borchers. Frontwoman Ellie, originally from Niort, France, sings with raw raspy vocal that accentuates the band's lo-fi, garage-punk sound.  Combining head-banging rock tunes with melodic, lower tempo tracks, American Breakfast brings a unique style to Chicago's garage DIY scene.
