The energy, vibe, and connection I felt was super welcoming. The atmosphere was full of excitement and people were already talking to strangers about what song both of the artists were going to play. Some people couldn’t hold their excitement in and others were trying to keep their cool, but they couldn’t because of seeing someone walk across the stage.

The independent, strong, an...

On October 18, 2018, the rebel-with-a-cause Yungblud played at Subterranean in Chicago, Illinois, along with their incredible supporting act Arrested Youth. Both of these acts put on one of the best shows I have ever seen and rocked the completely sold out venue with an ungodly amount of charisma and energy. The 21st Century Liability Tour is a must see, and here’s why.

Last Saturday, April 14th, Echosmith played The Metro in Chicago. 

Jena Rose from Texas started off the night. She brought a unique voice and style to the stage. She really got the crowd to dance along. Toward the end of the set she switched places with her keyboardist to demonstrate her many talents.
