Sebastian Bach Live at The Cubby Bear - Wednesday, 2/8 Chicago Concert Review (With Setlist)

Sebastian Bach Live at The Cubby Bear - Wednesday, 2/8 Chicago Concert Review (With Setlist)
As I've written many times, rock n' roll is at its best when it works a crowd into a frenzy and is completely unpredictable.  In that regard, last night's Sebastian Bach show at the Cubby Bear was a throwback.  ...

Richard Marx (Solo Acoustic with a 20 Piece Orchestra) Live at the Blue Chip Casino - Saturday, 2/4 Concert Review (With Setlist)
What better way to spend the night before the Super Bowl than by driving two hours to see Richard Marx perform with an orchestra at a casino?  ...

Kathleen Edwards and Hannah Georgas Live at Lincoln Hall - Thursday, 1/26 Concert Review (With Setlist)

Kathleen Edwards and Hannah Georgas Live at Lincoln Hall - Thursday, 1/26 Concert Review (With Setlist)
Maybe it was the Templeton Rye... maybe it was an unusually attentive audience at what is quickly becoming one of my favorite venues in the city... Whatever it was, Kathleen Edwards was on fire Thursday night at Lincoln Hall...

Material re-Issue Live at Reggie's - New Years Eve, 12/31/11 Chicago Concert Review - "Last Show Ever" (With Setlist)

Material re-Issue Live at Reggie's - New Years Eve, 12/31/11 Chicago Concert Review - "Last Show Ever" (With Setlist)
A triumphant Material re-Issue took the stage Saturday at Reggie's for the final evening of what has turned into a very successful 2011 victory lap.  The group rang in 2012 in jovial fashion with a setlist spanning not only their entire catalog but also some covers and other rarities for what has been billed as their "last show ever" and in the process wrote the epilogue for a book whose ending never felt quite right...

Steve Earle & The Dukes (And Duchesses) Live at the Vic Theatre - 7/19/11

Steve Earle & The Dukes (And Duchesses) Live at the Vic Theatre - 7/19/11
Steve Earle’s is one of the more amazing stories in recent music memory.
Having been jailed in 1994 on drug and firearm charges, it was anyone’s guess whether Earle would ever resume his career as a songwriter and recording artist.  Earle, who long followed the lead of his mentor Townes van Zandt both musically and recreationally, seemed to be on pace to finish up his life just as his infamous mentor had. But neither addiction nor jail could kill Steve Earle. Since then, a 1995 comeback has turned into the second half of a career that has seen a total of fourteen live and studio releases in the last sixteen years. ...

Ben Harper Live at The Vic Theatre, 7/1/11

Ben Harper Live at The Vic Theatre, 7/1/11
People can never understand why I go to so many concerts… or so many baseball games.  And what I always try to explain about the live concert setting is that you simply never know what you’re going to see.  Like baseball. Baseball is the one sport where day in and day out, it always feels like it’s possible to see something incredible.  I don’t go to a basketball game expecting that it’s possible I might see somebody score 100 points.  But with baseball, I watch the hit count constantly in the hopes that maybe today is the day I’ll see a no-hitter (and I have… a no-hitter and a perfect game).  Maybe this is the day I’ll see somebody hit for the cycle.  Maybe today is the day I’ll see a team turn a triple-play.  No matter how remote, there’s always that chance. Which brings me back to the live concert...

Hall & Oates with Company of Thieves Live at Ravinia - 6/26/11

Hall & Oates with Company of Thieves Live at Ravinia - 6/26/11
Sunday night featured an interesting mix of people in the lawn section at Ravinia.  From twenty-something hipsters wearing t-shirts displaying their typically ironic brand of “humor” (at Ravinia the shirts featured Hall & Oates influenced phrases like “Haulin’ Oats” and “Oates > Hall”) to babyboomers and beyond, Sunday’s show ran the gamut.  The “Live in ’85!” themed wearables were surely selling well. With a lack of recent material, Hall & Oates stuck to the hits on Sunday night… and the hits were plenty. ...
