Chvrches at the Metro

Fresh off of a sold out performance at Lincoln Hall the night before, Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook, and Martin Doherty, who make up the Scottish band Chvrches, performed at a sold out Metro Wednesday night. If you’ve been an ACITM follower, you know we are absolutely crazy about these guys. The band played most of their much anticipated debut album, The Bones of What You Believe, which is set to release on September 24.

Check out photos from the show below, and hit the jump for a mini review/setlist of the performance.

St. Lucia – Too Close

We’re digging “Too Close,” the latest track from Brooklyn-based synth-pop group St. Lucia. The experimental electronics make it the perfect song to close out summer and wind into fall. The band’s new album When The Night drops October 8.

Video of the Week: Kanye West Performs “Bound 2”

If you haven’t seen this video yet, you need to. Kanye West performed “Bound 2,” -the best song from “Yeezus” in my opinion- on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. He threw in a dig at Ray J, declared that “one girl is better than a thousand chickens” and flared around the stage enthusiastically.

Do you love the performance as much as we do?

North Coast Music Festival – Summer’s Last Stand

A huge storm chased out concert goers from Union Park on Friday, but they came rushing back in a few hours later, eager to kick off North Coast weekend. With performances by artists such as Nas, Afrojack, Mac Miller and Wu-Tang, the 3-day festival is traditionally a goodbye to summer. AlunaGeorge made her debut in Chicago, the always smooth Gary Clark Jr showed off his electric guitar mastery, and Purity Ring put on an awesome light show, with front woman Megan Jame’s white dress becoming a rainbow of florescent colors throughout the performance. Most disappointing was Passion Pit, though, who was forced to do a DJ set after Friday’s storm made their equipment unusable.

Check out our photos below and let us know your favorite performances of the weekend!
