Angry PiCKles share their favorite tour road songs for the May agency playlist.

The Angry PiCKles are C-K Chicago’s house band. Once a year they come together for an exclusive tour for The Battle for Hope benefiting Off the Street Club, a boys and girls club for at-risk youth. The exclusive one-show tour and battle of the agency bands, pits the PiCKles against musical acts from across Chicago’s large agency community.

Over the many storied years of PiCKles history (two years, to be exact) band members have come and gone but what remains true for every Angry PiCKle is their diverse list of musical loves. So, when they rev up the tour van and hit the long and winding road to the Cubby Bear on May 28, their road songs range across decades and genres.

To give us a taste of what tour life sounds like, they put together the May Agency Playlist for us.
