Category: Concert Coverage



    @colekincart “What did we just witness?” As we left the smoke-ridden Lincoln Hall, my friend Jason turned to me and said those exact words. It’s not often you leave a concert scratching your head. The intensity of the confusion and potent emotion seemed to overpower the typical casual, lighthearted feelings after leaving a show. For…

    @colekincart @genna__gee In order for a concert for an artist to have the best live-show experience possible, there’s several things that must be taken into account. Whether it is crafting the right setlist, generating the right energy, or not holding back, Indigo De Souza was able to get it all done.  Still riding the wave…

    @amelia.moseman @genna__gee Loony was a production. We were absolutely ecstatic to go to our first show for WIIT and let’s just say the night did not disappoint. Before Loony came on, Ebony Loren opened the show. She’s a local artist that has accumulated a growing fan base thanks to TikTok. Ebony was supported by a…

    Pitchfork Music Festival 2021

    @mantha.maee Pitchfork Music Festival has a sense of dualism that fits in a way I never would have expected. You have the quintessential midwest hospitality with cicadas screeching, ice cold lemonade shandys, and indie boys. Then you have the head banging-mosh pitting-Sear’s Towering-helicopter droning-urban grunge. The music has the same sense of dualism, with vibey…

    @mantha.maee I’d heard Dayglow a few times before, and can tell they’re pretty up and coming in the indie/alt world. When I saw they were having a show at Schubas Tavern, I knew it was gonna be a good one. Dayglow is a pretty young band, but one of those bands with a cool sound…

  • North Coast Music Festival 2019

    “North Coast celebrated its tenth birthday with EDM heavyweights like Bassnectar, Flux Pavilion and Major Lazer”   2019 marked the 10-year anniversary of Chicago’s North Coast Music Festival, which I found to be impressive considering the city’s increasingly saturated music festival scene. My personal theory for the longevity of the fest is its position for…

In order to…

    The Rapture @HouseofVans

    The Rapture @HouseofVans By @Nic.jwill @RichJacobs Rich Jacobs decorated House of Vans with blue lines and balloons. The scene reminded me of an ocean of balloons. In the middle of the venue stood a giant wave-like balloon structure. Throughout the show, balloons were tossed around and the crowd truly resembled an ocean of fans. @MrLukeJenner…
