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.

Sleeper Agent and Ben Kweller @ Lincoln Hall (3/31)

I’ve been waiting for a chance to catch Sleeper Agent live since last July, and this weekend the dates will finally work out. I first discovered the band reading Spin Magazine, who featured them in their “Breaking Out” segment. The 6 piece band from Bowling Green originally came together after guitarist Tony Smith and drummer Justin Wilson found barista turned singer Alex Kandel performing at open mic’s. They’ll be in Chicago Saturday night in support of Ben Kweller, who recently released a new album titled Go Fly a Kite, at Lincoln Hall at 10 PM. Tickets are sold out, so check out Craigslist if you weren’t lucky enough to get one.
