The Week In Chicago Rock

You shoulda been there.

1. Courtney Barnett at Schubas on Wednesday night.

Loerzel: "Courtney Barnett sang her delightful lyrics in her deadpan style on Wednesday night at Schubas, which was very charming - but what really wowed me was her guitar playing. Early on in the set, she stepped away from the microphone stand and started flailing around with her guitar, her hair hanging down over her face, digging harder into her riffs, while bassist Bones Sloan and drummer Dave Mudie pounded away. As terrific as this Australian's songs sound on her 2013 record The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas, they were even more intense and alluring in live performance."
