Hope Country @ The Varsity Theater

Hope Country was the main support for Quietdrive at their holiday show, and they were the big surprise of the evening for me. I wasn’t familiar with either opening band, and it’s always a treat to find a great band when you least expect it. They brought some great crowd interaction to their set as well as the quieter side of the singer-songwriter genre, and the two extremes made them blast to photograph.

Satellite @ Schubas

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!

Lindsey Stirling @ The Vic

Honestly, I hadn’t heard of Lindsey Stirling before this show.

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!
