    I thought it was so cool when she mixed in Diamonds On the Soles of Her Shoes, the Paul Simon fanboy in me freaked out a little. Too bad she won't be back for awhile.

    Vince was also great last night. If his new album is out by Pitchfork Festival I may have to go his day too.

    The band did two sets, the first a mishmash of old and new stuff, and the second "Odessey & Oracle" straight through. The first set was hit or miss, with a lot of great songs split up by some very dad-ish blues rock. But the energy in the crowd was very good throughout the first set, sort of surprising because it was totally geriatric and they were in their seats for most of it. Easily the oldest crowd I've been in. Colin Blunstone's voice sounds fantastic.

    After a 20-minute break the Zombies came back for "O&O" and the atmosphere took a pronounced dip. The music sounded great but the crowd was barely there. Don't know if they were just intently listening, or they were casual music fans who missed the earlier set's guitar riffz, or if the olds ran out of steam after 9 p.m. but it was a bummer. This venue is in the middle of nowhere, and a lot of the crowd I think just goes to every show that the venue puts on, so probably the energy will be better in a city. Still a good performance, and I'm glad I saw those songs live.
    Thanks for this! So I can get there late

    matthew mayfield was ok as an opening act thursday at hob. blue october was turrible, very turrible, more turrible than I thought they could be. hob is my least favorite venue in chicago, maybe the world, especially when it's way overcrowded like it was thursday.

    pokey lafarge and his band were very, very great friday after work at shenanigans on division street. went so I could miss the 6/16/17 metro show, but now thinking I may have to go and take the better half to see him and his band.

    Vince Staples was a real #Lituation the likes of which are rivaled by almost none.

    I really liked Kilo Kish, too, but friends were comparing her to art school shit, which I understand I guess. Still an enjoyable set.

    Grabbed a sweet loge seat for less than face from StubHub yesterday for "And Then Yo La Tengo Turned Itself Inside Out". The band was joined by eight improv jazz musicians who added their own layers of noise and texture to a number of YLT standards. The first tune was a new composition and it was an unintelligible mess (the four brass musicians were particularly intrusive). Thought I might not make it through the entire show. But by the time they got to "Let's Save Tony Orlando's House" (the third tune), things were coming together better.

    My favorite guest musician was Zeena Parkins playing a home-built electric harp. She had it hooked up to some effects pedals, it has a built-in vibrato bar and in addition to her fingers, she used what appeared to be a steel slide to play the instrument. She added a number of cool, unique sounds.

    It was also a blast to see jazz drummer Chad Taylor who I knew in college. He was way too talented for Millikin's music program, so he was only there for a year or two. He transferred to the New School in NYC and then went on to bigger and better things. I haven't seen him for about 22 years and only realized just before the show that he was playing.

    Musical highlights for me were "Our Way to Fall" with appropriately delicate improv and "Blue Line Swinger" which was an epic 15- to 20-minute tour de force for Georgia, Chad and the other percussionist, Amy Garapic. Also enjoyed James taking the lead vocals on Sun Ra's "Nuclear War" for an encore.

    The show was billed as the world premiere of "And Then Yo La Tengo Turned Itself Inside Out". Perhaps they'll do more of these in the future? I think the performance went right up to the threshold of my personal tolerance for noise improv. I'd say if you're a Yo La Tengo fan, it's certainly worth checking out as long as the ticket prices are reasonable.

    P.S. - Town Hall seating is not very comfortable in the loge or the balcony. Haven't been in the main floor seats yet.

    Damn, that's awesome, didn't hear about that show. Blue Line Swinger would have been amazing.

    The Sonics show ruled last night. They said they had just started their tour so if they are coming to your hood definitely go.

    Not sure why the bartender decided to give me of free tequila shots though because now im going to die. Really weird situation where even the new songs were really good and got similar reactions to the classics.

    Lambchop put on one of the best shows I've seen in a long time. Played mostly new songs (and a cover of When You Were Mine) but they were all fantastically composed and performed all pretty and shit.

    Kweku Collins was good too he really has upped his MC game and controls the stage shout out to lollapalooza for recognizing that

    Regina Spektor was absolutely phenomenal last night. She played one of her Russian songs for the first time in like, 4 years which is awesome. My only complaint is that people who go to the Chicago Theater have to go to the bathroom every 15 minutes, or maybe that was just the people in front of me. Still, there isn't really a bad seat per se. I was in the balcony and could see very well so that was nice. I remember being in the very back row for Sufjan Stevens and being able to see pretty well for that too. Anyways, overall a great show.

    Very much enjoyed that set despite missing 99% of Stupid Rose. He has a lot of presence/charisma/all that stuff and really got the Northwestern TAs' heads bobbing.

    Bryan Ferry is 71, and can't hit the high notes for very long anymore. Several of the songs I was excited for - Slave to Love, More Than This - were played in different keys and didn't sound as good as the recorded versions. Still, he had a solid band backing him up, and some songs - like 'Re-Make/Re-Model' and 'Avalon' - came off sounding great.
    As long as the music's loud enough, we won't hear the world falling apart.

    Not so much a review, because obviously Chris Stapleton was fucking great last night, but rather an observation. I cannot believe he sold out Rogers Arena. One album...wtf

    I mean he appeals to both your standard country bro and your standard festival bro and he makes good music too so it's not super surprising to me

    I think he also wrote every country bro song ever recorded between 2011-2014 and that probably helps too. I might be making that up. Zach will correct me if I am

    the word bro is now officially applied more liberally and aimlessly than the word hipster.








    and that's coming from a hipsterbro.
