Satellite is a California band that, for as long as I’ve known of them, have mainly stuck to the West Coast, so when I found out that they were playing in Chicago, I was excited to see them touring. Add in the fact that they played with Paper Route, which is a band the hubby really enjoys, and we just HAD to go to the show. I think lots of other people felt the same way because the show was sold out and packed!
We heard about this show just a few hours before Tall Animals hit the stage in support of Lindsey Stirling. Surprisingly, it was a rare free night, so we lucked out and were able to make it.
Tall Animals played a DJ set this night to get the crowd going, so it was a bit different from their standard fare, but it’s always wonderful to see these guys! Here are just a few of my favorites:
You might recognize a few of these guys from my many photos of The Dog & Everything and Last Fast Action. But, since those pictures, they’ve changed it up 100%: they put down the guitar, tossed out the bass, and lost the drums. As Tall Animals, they are focusing on upbeat, danceable electronica. It’s quite a shift, but it’s great seeing something so inspired. Plus, it’s super easy to dance to.
