EMO, INDIE, POP PUNK & POST-HARDCORE
Bands of the Chicagoland area 

Don't see your band here? Email hello@chiburbia.com
This is a non-comprehensive list of bands that are from the Chicagoland area (and sometimes, actually much further away than "Chicagoland" but still in IL, NW Indiana, or southern WI). We are well aware there are many more, and if you want to be added, please email us and you'll be added. The only real criteria for being in this list is that you have a Spotify page, which, well, isn't really that difficult.

We, as Chiburbia Music, certainly have our opinions and preferences for which bands are better or worse amongst this list, but you should be able to discern which ones we personally love more than others (assuming you care) by the ones we book for shows vs. the ones we do not. Either way, there are no hard feelings, it's just how booking goes.

​​​​​​​Regardless of that, we want to be a centralized location for exposing people to all the music that Chicagoland has to offer, even if it isn't that great. We all have our own opinions, and we're entitled to ours as well. In the meantime, please enjoy this list of all of the emo/indie/pop punk/post-hardcore bands we're aware of in the Chicagoland area, whether they are amazing or not. :-)
