Mild High Club at Lincoln Hall: Chicago’s much-needed night of relaxation

Once again, our Chicago psych-funk favorites, Mild High Club returned home and delivered an amazing show to all of their fans, new and old. This time, the band was accompanied by Paul Cherry and Lucille Furs. After the 2016 album release, “Skiptracing,” Mild High Club fans were in awe.

The album set high expectations, but this tour did not disappoint. Lucille Furs kicked…

Jesse and Johnny of KONGOS on Family, Food, and Their New Album

If you say haven’t spent a day walking around singing “Whoa, come with me now/ I’m gonna take you down/ Whoa, come with me now/ I’m gonna show you how,” in your head,  you’re lying. “Come With Me Now” was one of last year’s most catchy, and most popular songs. It’s doubtful you don’t know that 2015 anthem, but it’s very possible you don’t know enough about KONGOS, the band that brought us such a hit. KONGOS is a band of four brothers: Johnny, Jesse, Danny, and Dylan. They just released their latest album Egomaniac,…
