CollXtion II

Allie X returned to Chicago last week looking considerably more gangster than the last time she was in town. Donning mouthy overalls, a trucker hat, and aviators, Allie X strut her stuff across the stage as she played her way through hit from her first album, and fresh ones off of CollXtion II. While still maintaining her synthpop roots, the new album features songs that have a more hip hop feel to them.

The Wooden Sky @ Lincoln Hall 4/28

The Wooden Sky will be playing Lincoln Hall this Friday in support of their April 7th release, Swimming in Strange Waters. This record is the 5th full-length record of the Toronto-based indie folk-rock band. Weaving psychedelic tones with quieter acoustic tones, The Wooden Sky tackles the notion of trauma and its haunting effects on life. Check them out below, and get your tickets for Friday’s show here.

Allie X @ Lincoln Hall 4/27

The Canadian electro-pop act Allie X is playing Lincoln Hall this Thursday in support of her album CollXtion II which is being released June 9th.

Allie X has been taking the pop scene by storm, earning her high praise from music outlets like Pitchfork, Stereogum, The FADER, and more. I was lucky enough to see Allie X a few years ago at Double Door, and was blown away by her vocal range and well-established stage presence.

GGOOLLDD Shines at The Empty Bottle

After having spent 3 weeks recording in a cabin, GGOOLLDD was happy to to be back on the road again. The band took the stage around 11:30pm on Wednesday night to an excited crowd. Within the first song, it was easy to see how comfortable the band is performing live for audiences. They have a very natural and charming stage presence that draws fans in and gets them singing and dancing from the get-go. There was even a decent number of guys who fist pumped unabashedly throughout the set. GGOOLLDD’s stage presence combined with their catchy, unique sound makes me think that they will go far in the music business. I’m excited to see where they pop up next!

Sundara Karma @ Subterranean 4/18

NME’s “Best New Band of 2017” is coming back to Chicago this Tuesday to play at Subterranean with Coast Modern and 888. The band was last in Chicago the night before Thanksgiving and played one hell of a show at Bottom Lounge. Since we last saw them, they have officially released their debut album, Youth is Only Ever Fun in Retrospect, and have been taking over alt radio. To see them before the explode, get your tickets here.
