Mikal Cronin @ Saki Records on 2.10.2013
While in town to play a pair of shows at the Empty Bottle with Ty Segall, Mikal Cronin branched out on Sunday morning (2/10) for a set at Saki Records as part of the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events series Off the Record. Cronin performed selections from his forthcoming album, MCII (due out on 5/7 via Merge), with Ty Segall drummer Emily Rose. The event was centered around local label Trouble in Mind, who put out Cronin's self-titled debut in 2011, and attendees got to hear and purchase forthcoming releases by Jacco Gardner and Maston before the general public. Treats from Bang Bang! Pie Shop and drinks from 312 Urban Wheat Ale didn't hurt either.
We've got a set of photos from the 2/10 event at Saki. More of those, and a stream of Mikal Cronin's new single "Shout It Out," are below...
