Friday night live at Transistor: Zapruder Point and Project Film. Sound by Dominic Armstrong with Janna McCluskey.

Zapruder Point (aka Dan Zapruder Phillips) has been recording and performing in Chicago for over a decade — usually alone with an electric guitar but sometimes joined by friends. If you like Morrissey, The Decemberists and Death Cab for Cutie, you'll find a common thread in Dan's melodic arrangements and plaintive vocal trails. But to balance out the prettiness, you'll also hear echoes of Billy Bragg, Guided by Voices, The Feelies and Britpop in general. Zapruder Point's latest collection is a full-band EP called Heads Together. 


Project Film is the precocious and awkward duo of long-time friends Sam McAllister and Megan Frestedt. Their first record, 'Chicago,' was released in 2010. They make indie pop music with lots of guitars and lots of synths.
