Satellite is a California band that, for as long as I’ve known of them, have mainly stuck to the West Coast, so when I found out that they were playing in Chicago, I was excited to see them touring. Add in the fact that they played with Paper Route, which is a band the hubby really enjoys, and we just HAD to go to the show. I think lots of other people felt the same way because the show was sold out and packed!
My friends got a last minute call for the opening slot, and I went to The Vic to see/photograph their set. But, since I was already there, I stayed to check out Lindsey. And I’m so glad I did. I’ve seen so many bands and concerts, that I love when I get surprised by something different. I was in awe of Lindsey’s energy, style, talent, and interaction with the audience. I wasn’t able to stay for the whole show, but I definitely would love to see more!
We heard about this show just a few hours before Tall Animals hit the stage in support of Lindsey Stirling. Surprisingly, it was a rare free night, so we lucked out and were able to make it.
Tall Animals played a DJ set this night to get the crowd going, so it was a bit different from their standard fare, but it’s always wonderful to see these guys! Here are just a few of my favorites:
