    big thief @ jefferson theatre

    @colekincart Big Thief’s enchanting, yet nostalgic sound attributed to them finding massive critical acclaim with their 2022 album “Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You,” and the energy found on that record translated beautifully into their live shows. Despite this being my third outing at one of their performances, their concert at the Jefferson…

    Joywave @ the Metro

    @colekincart “Joywave! The live album…near Wrigley!” This past Friday I had the pleasure of seeing Joywave perform live at the Metro. Due to a handful of reasons, this was a particularly intimate and personal concert for me. First off, I invited my dad to attend with me. I surprised him with tickets for Christmas, so…

    Current Joys @ Thalia Hall

    @mantha.maee Current Joys is the indie grunge band that you want to scream to. And cry to. I recall feeling the most main character listening to Blondie walking the streets of Chicago in the dead of winter or blasting Kids with my friends in LA as we cruise down PCH. This was a show I…

    Courtney Barnett @ The Chicago Theatre

    @colekincart Last Sunday, the city of Chicago was blessed with a long-awaited Courtney Barnett concert at the Chicago Theater. Hailing from Australia, Courtney Barnett is an indie-rock singer, songwriter and musician. Most fans, including myself, gravitate towards Barnett’s music for many reasons. However, her lyrical delivery is always a personal spectacle. Her sly dead-pan and…

    @colekincart “It feels so good to be going to concerts again.”  While we were walking out of the venue, I turned to fellow music director Sam and said those words. While most would obviously agree with that statement, Buck Meek’s performance at Lincoln Hall was an extremely gracious reminder–for both the audience and the artist–…

    Dr. Dog @ Metra

    @amelia.moseman @genna__gee  Dr. Dog was absolutely everything. They had the light production, they had the stage presence, and they certainly had the perfect setlist. The Philly native band performed at Metra which held an impressive amount of people. In fact, the crowd held a wide range of ages which goes to show you how many…

Albums can wane back and forth between feeling “dated” or “ahead of their time.” Released 7 years after his breakout debut album “Worlds”, it might seem that on…
