The House of Stathopoulo will be well represented at the 2018 Riot Fest in Douglas Park in Chicago September 14-16 with Elvis Costello & Imposters, Blink 182, Superchunk, and Bleachers with Jack Antonoff,  plus more acts to be announced soon.  Visit the website for details.

Jack Antonoff's band Bleachers will also appear at the Pilgrimage Music & Culture Festival in September in Franklin, Tennessee along with Jack White with Epi's Dominic Davis on bass, the Keb' Mo' Band, Valerie June, and Chris Stapleton.  Antonoff visited the the Epiphone booth at CES last February and was photographed performing with a very interesting new Epiphone Wilshire. Look for our interview soon and get your tickets today while supplies last. And if you'v never tried a Wilshire, visit your Authorized Epiphone Dealer today to check out the Phant-o-matic, designed with My Chemical Romance co-founder Frank Iero.

"The Phant-o-matic has been my go-to instrument since the day it arrived, finished, in my hands. I love that guitar," said Iero. "It's everything I wanted it to be and so versatile. It feels like an extension of my body. It's one of those things where at the end of the day, if the Phant-o-matic doesn't happen to be the perfect guitar for recording a certain song I've made, you can be sure it played a major part in that song's birth. That's why there are so many guitars in the world, a song will tell you which guitar it needs in order to become whole."
