The Hives, Refused, and Bleached brought the house down at The Vic

The Vic was treated to one hell of a sold out show with 3 amazing bands giving it there all. The Hives, Refused, and Bleached had the crowd going crazy all evening and for good reason. It was a night filled with hard hitting punk music that gave fans a chance to channel their angst and frustration from today’s social climate. This was the first time that Refused and The Hives had played together since 1998. Both bands played their hearts out and were very vocal with the crowd all…

CHVRCHES made it back to Chicago with one of their best performances to date. In support of their most recent album ‘Love Is Dead’ they mixed evenly over their 3 albums some of their biggest hits along with a nice selection of tracks from the new album.

Greta Van Fleet rock the first night of their 3 night sold out run at the Aragon

Greta Van Fleet have quickly become a massive success in the industry and giving a new generation a reason to fall in love with Rock N Roll. It’s not with out criticism as well.  Being a band that has burst onto the scene so rapidly, you really want to know more about them and who influenced them. Some who criticize GVF say that they are copying Led Zeppelin, but if you ever go to see them live, you will know that is not the case. Their influences span many legends…

Thom Yorke performs Tommorrow’s Modern Boxes at Chicago Theatre

Thom Yorke returned to Chicago for his solo tour after a very successful two night run at the United Center with Radiohead this Summer. Tuesday night’s sold out show at the Chicago Theatre was a sight to behold.  Very much a departure from what you would expect from a Radiohead show.  Much darker in tone and way more ambient. Thom Yorke brought along the longtime Radiohead producer, Nigel Godrich, and visual artist Tarik Barri for this tour. The tour is in support of Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, which was released back…

Tenacious D made their triumphant return to Chicago with two face melting nights of rock.  This was a hot ticket and both nights sold out rather quickly.

Jack and Kyle had Wynchester along for the ride to open up the nights and this duo hit it out of the park on the 2nd night. Wynchester consists of Mike Bray and John Konesky. They have been apart of The Kyle…
