Chicago-Based Elephant Gun Plays Champaign


An elephant gun is large-caliber, originally designed—as the name suggests—for hunting very large game. Elephant Gun is also the name of a nine-piece band out of Chicago, whose sound has been described as “metal-influenced folk pop” and “Americana-baked ballroom swagger.” In short, they have too many influences to name. Elephant Gun will play in Champaign Friday night, and I’ll visit with four of their members on the Friday edition of “Live and Local.”
