CHVRCHES at Lincoln Hall on 06.11.2013
CHVRCHES and opening act Still Corners played a second sold-out show at Lincoln Hall on Tuesday night (6/11). Still Corners began at 8PM, as billed, and played on a limited stage setup to the few attendees who had arrived. Their blend of electro dream pop balanced nicely with the growing crowd and visuals projected behind them.
By the time CHVRCHES hit the stage Lincoln Hall was overflowing. As adorable singer Lauren Mayberry noted, they wrapped their first album in Chicago one day before their two-night run at Lincoln Hall. The crowd was treated to mostly new songs from the upcoming album, as well as "Recover" and "Now is Not The Time" from the EP. Mayberry was softly confident on stage, handling drunken yells to play the Game of Thrones theme song and other requests with ease. As the band finished their set with hit "The Mother We Share," walked off stage, and the Lincoln Hall staff began to turn the house lights and music back on, no one wanted to leave and the whole crowd stayed put. In response the band quickly came running back on stage for one more: a bouncy electrosynth cover of Prince's "I Would Die 4 U."
A set of pictures from their 6/11 show at Lincoln Hall are in this post. More below...

On Friday night (5/17), Of Montreal brought their North American tour with Wild Moccasins through Chicago for a performance at Lincoln Hall.

METZ at Lincoln Hall on 05.12.2013
On Sunday night (5/12), Toronto-based abrasive punks METZ toured through Chicago to play their largest headlining show here yet at Lincoln Hall with No Joy and TV Ghost. As per usual, feedback reigned supreme throughout the performance, and all three members were drenched in sweat by the time it was said and done. Were you there? If so, what did you think? Pictures and a few videos from the Lincoln Hall show are in this post.
Between their non-stop touring schedule, METZ somehow managed to make it into the studio to begin working on their second album. Guitarist Alex Edkins told Exclaim!, "We did manage to find some time after the European tour to get into the studio, and we recorded a new track that will probably see the light of day in a month or two on the internet," he explains. "But it is tough to find the time to focus on new material when you're going from club to club. We're hoping come September, when our touring schedule is all finished, we can focus on the new record." As discussed, you can also catch METZ at the 2013 Pitchfork Music Festival in July and at Pygmalion 2013 in September.

Hot Water Music @ Metro in January (more by Zach Pollack)
When Hot Water Music went on hiatus in 2006, 3/4 of the band (Chris Wollard, Jason Black, and George Rebelo) formed a new project called The Draft.

Maybe you caught them at Metro this January when they were on tour in support of 2012's Exister? You'll have a chance to catch The Draft live this summer, when they embark on a U.S. tour in July. That tour includes a performance at Lincoln Hall on July 27. Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale TODAY (5/3) at noon CST.
