Chicago Music Exchange Welcomes Matt Pike of Sleep

Sleep's music is all-encompassing - it's loud and it's heavy and it surrounds you and dares you not to listen. We imagine you all might feel the same way about walking into the showroom. With a floor-to-ceiling guitar selection, they literally surround you and dare you not to play. Today, we were visited by Matt Pike of both metal outfits Sleep and High on Fire. Sleep, active during the 90's and recently reformed, passed through Chicago Music Exchange this afternoon (en route to a performance, of course).


After perusing the store with Joel, a certain Gibson caught Pike's eye. Pike, a Les Paul fan already, is seen above holding the Les Paul Recording.

Catch power trio Sleep tonight at Thalia Hall in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood. Opening for Sleep is Corrections House. For show details, head over to Thalia Hall's website, and pick up a set of tickets to see this musician in action.

Let us know if you make it out to see Sleep tonight - it's going to be wild.
