Josh Ritter at Thalia Hall 9/26/2016

Last night Josh Ritter stopped in Chicago for his second headlining date of the year in support of his album Sermon On The Rocks. The first show was at the very cavernous and not-so-great-sounding Riviera, and this concert was at the much-preferred Thalia Hall, with it’s fantastic sound system and intimate atmosphere. The diehards made it out despite the double whammy of the Presidential debate … Continue reading Josh Ritter at Thalia Hall 9/26/2016

Poliça at Thalia Hall 4/16/2016

A few days ago Poliça hit Thalia Hall as part of the Chicago International Music and Movies Fest.

If you’ve been avoiding it because she’s a “country” artist, well, grow up. Take a listen and you’ll find she’s more in the vein of First Aid Kit than … Continue reading Jill Andrews at Thalia Hall 4/15/2016

Favorite Photos of ’15-Ten Of My Best From This Year

It was a good year for picture taking, as we were able to get into some really awesome shows and festivals. Some of these photos I picked because I think they’re really good. Others I chose because of my own personal feelings toward them. So, if you see a pic and think “I saw your photos from that show and there were much better ones,” … Continue reading Favorite Photos of ’15-Ten Of My Best From This Year
