Julia Michaels at House of Blues Chicago
A high energy, infectious performance from this young singer / songwriter.
RY X at Thalia Hall
The entire, very intimate show, had a very communal feeling.
Metric at The Aragon Ballroom
They're a svelt bunch, these Canadians known as Metric.
The Black Queen at Subterranean
This is probably their last go-around in the smaller venues.
LP at The Vic Theatre
Gritty and confident, LP is a master of the craft.
Interpol at The Chicago Theatre
The group looks sharp as hell (as always).
Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks at Metro
Stephen Malkmus is good at what he does and an endearing goofball while doing it.
Amber Run at Lincoln Hall
Their live performance is a sharp one and it’s easy to see they’ve spent plenty of time on stage.
The Japanese House at Lincoln Hall
She sounds like nobody else...as if the words are wrapped in the complexity of a synthesizer.
Death Cab For Cutie at The Aragon Ballroom
This Sunday evening show at the Aragon was about an evening of festivity and joymaking.
Elle King at The Aragon Ballroom
With the sass of a cranky lover, she spit her tales like one would during a hangover brunch.
Walk The Moon at The Aragon Ballroom
With Walk the Moon, you expect anthems and fun. That's exactly what they delivered.
