fall concert lineup

fall concert lineup: 2014

fall in chicago has always been my favorite. the changing of seasons sweeps away the humidity of summer. replaces lush greens with fiery oranges and reds. that familiar crunch of leaves under boots (boots!). pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin beer. and the best damn time of year for live music. 

there have been quite a few concert announcements lately that have gotten me all worked up. so far, this is what i’m looking forward to in the second half of twenty-fourteen:

  • magic man // walk the moon // panic! @ northerly island — 7.25
  • gin blossoms @ taste of lincoln — 7.26
  • santah @ wicker park fest — 7.27
  • young the giant @ house of blues — 8.2
  • miles nielsen and the rusted hearts @ schubas — 8.9
  • hooray for earth @ schubas — 8.13
  • matt wertz @ lincoln hall — 9.2
  • gardens & villa @ empty bottle — 9.26
  • sharon van etten @ thalia hall — 10.10
  • bombay bicycle club @ park west — 10.14
  • x ambassadors @ lincoln hall — 10.15
  • rhye @ vic theatre —10.25
  • kimbra @ lincoln hall — 11.1
  • st. lucia @ metro — 11.11
  • james vincent mcmorrow @ house of blues — 11.12

james vincent mcmorrow at lincoln hall was, hands down, the best concert i have ever seen in my life. and i’ve seen a lot of concerts. 

it was so good that the following day i bought last minute tickets for his show in milwaukee, rented a car, and drove out there by myself to experience it all over again. 

needless to say, i may have squealed with delight when i saw his fall tour announcement. 

chicago. house of blues (meh). november twelfth. 

who’s coming with me? 

just snagged fitz and the tantrums tickets for november…

my fall concert lineup is filling out quite nicely. 

foster the people / friendly fires / lydia / cameron mcgill & what army / fitz and the tantrums / two door cinema club

i think if i could get away with never eating i’d spend all of my money on shows…

i’m a junkie, what can i say…
