mewithoutYou @ Thalia Hall

mewithoutYou @ Thalia Hall, Chicago IL on The "Farewell" Tour May 10, 2022

All good things must come to an end. Not even my favorite band mewithoutYou can escape that fate. At least in this case it’s a very soft goodbye as they open the “Farewell” Tour right here in Chicago at Thalia Hall with openers Tigers Jaw. Thalia Hall Originally built in 1892 and modeled after an … Read more

Russian Circles @ Lincoln Hall

Russian Circles – Lincoln Hall, Chicago IL on April 10, 2022 – Blood Year tour

Picked up tickets to see Russian Circles at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, IL sometime back in October 2021. Shows were originally scheduled for January but due to an injury to someone in the band it got rescheduled for April 2022 and the two shows were combined into one. One silver lining is that COVID-19 infection/hospitalization … Read more

mewithoutYou @ X-Ray Arcade

mewithoutYou - X-Ray Arcade, Cudahy WI on January 10, 2022 - Brother Sister 15 and 16 Year Anniversary Tour

2022 also starting with back-to-back winter concerts. Also again it’s mewithoutYou (setlist here). Tonight it’s in Cudahy, Wisconsin at the X-Ray Arcade which itself is an interesting place that looks like a tiny dive from outside but has a relatively large music area inside that I didn’t expect. Crowd was packed shoulder-to-shoulder and while it’s … Read more

2022 getting started with some winter concert action at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, Illinois to see mewithoutYou.

mewithoutYou @ The House Cafe

The House Cafe in Dekalb, Illinois

Scored tickets to see one of my favorite bands down at The House Cafe in Dekalb, Illinois. Teddy Roberts and The Mouths were the opening act.  Kind of a bluegrass/country vibe. Tigers Jaw closed the show.  They are good but not quite my style (emo/pop punk). Right in the middle was mewithoutYou.  Sorry my photos … Read more

Friends of mine scored tickets for the Foo Fighters latest Concrete and Gold tour in Milwaukee at the new Fiserv Forum.  Gotta say I didn’t expect to see such an impressive show – nearly 3 hours long and one of the best light displays I’ve ever seen.  Setlist can be seen here. Don’t forget to … Read more

Fleet Foxes @ Chicago Theatre

Fleet Foxes @ Chicago Theatre

Got lucky and scored tickets months ago to see Fleet Foxes at the Chicago Theatre.  First balcony booth seats with a table and waiter service thanks to an awesome pre-sale deal. Opening band Nap Eyes was OK if nothing else.  Super chill sleepy-time music.  Guess it’s not just a clever name? Fleet Foxes went on around … Read more
