Patrick Watson @ Lincoln Hall on 12.02.2012
Montreal-based singer-songwriter Patrick Watson and his hyper-talented band toured through Chicago this past Sunday (12/2) for a performance at Lincoln Hall. The five-piece outfit tore through their Adventures in Your Own Backyard-heavy set, only slowing for a few acoustic numbers. With the presence of baby grand piano and a video projection sphere, all members and the remainder of their gear barely fit on stage. They somehow pulled it off under tight accommodations, and gave us one hell of a Sunday night.
More pictures, a live video of "Into Giants," and the setlist from the 12/2 Lincoln Hall show are below...
