CONCERT REVIEW – Future Islands, Run the Jewels

My one and only day of Summerfest was this past Friday, and thankfully the two acts I wanted to see this year were both on the same night. We got to the grounds right around 8PM and I was anxious that we’d miss the beginning of the first’s set, but luckily they stalled for fifteen minutes so everything worked out. I saw Future Islands at the Johnson Controls Stage followed by Run the Jewels at the Generac Power Stage, the latter we got in the pit for.

Croons and Growls at the Greek Theatre with Future Islands

Whether you’re ready or not, live shows are (generally) back. Although there is ongoing daily uncertainty of how long this pandemic will last, with more and more cancellations creeping up, being back in the thick of it brought a strange mix of comfort and anxiety. Strangely enough, the comfort came from the inane banter of a crowd that just wanna get back into feeling good, and dare I say, normal. Future Islands is just the band to welcome you with open arms and make sure you know that things will be better.

Future Islands offer up a profoundly cathartic and explosive set at House of Blues

Future Islands made their bombastic return to live shows this week, kicking off their tour at the House of Blues in Anaheim to a sold-out and absolutely mad crowd. Led by the original mad lad himself, frontman Samuel T. Herring was as much a conduit for the riotous energies that were coursing through the crowd as he was their very source. If there ever was a more perfect concert to shake loose all the stagnant woes and anxieties that have built themselves up within us during the last year-and-a-half, it was this one. Full of unbridled passion, Herring and company sought to obliterate whatever burdens you carried in through the sheer will of their songs.

Back to the Future Islands

Back to the Future Islands: Back in May, Baltimore-based synth-pop outfit Future Islands announced an ambitious and optimistic 59 date world tour, that sees them make a stop in L.A. at the Greek Theatre. But then, “ambitious and optimistic” is a fairly decent description of the band’s music too, so...

Parquet Courts, The Wombats, Future Islands

Very groovy new music from Parquet Courts this week. Future Islands shared a song called "Peach." No plans for a full record for now. I got hip to this week's Big Beat Chicago Artist of the Week Press A this morning and had to share 'em with you. Have a...
