Russian Circles // Chelsea Wolfe @ Lincoln Hall on 8.23.2012

Chelsea Wolfe

On Thursday night (8/23) Russian Circles brought their Sargent House tour de force with Chelsea Wolfe and Marriages through Chicago for a performance at Lincoln Hall.

The venue was packed by the time openers and Red Sparowes-related project Marriages polished off a pair of songs. They sounded great and performed cuts from their debut EP, Kitsune, which hit stores in May via the label. If you haven't taken a listen to the album yet, check it out via their bandcamp. Chelsea Wolfe was up next and delivered an impressive performance, her first-ever in Chicago. Despite Thursday night being her Chicago debut, the crowd seemed to know every single word and didn't hold back in singing along. She performed much of her excellent 2011 LP, Apokalypsis, and also played a few from her 2010 debut, The Grime & The Glow. Russian Circles closed out the night with a mix of songs from their four albums. There were mosh pits throughout their headlining performance, which, if you've ever been to Lincoln Hall, is a funny thing. Nonetheless, the crowd was into it and the show was a nice mix of metal-tinged music-- Russian Circles in the post rock corner, Chelsea Wolfe representing goth, and Marriages championing atmospheric rock-- of all types.
