The Weekend In Chicago Rock

You shoulda been there.

1. Godspeed You! Black Emperor at Rockefeller Chapel at the University of Chicago on Saturday.

Gendron: "If slow and steady wins the race, then Godspeed You! Black Emperor took first place in the equivalent of a long-distance marathon Saturday at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel at the University of Chicago. Optimizing tonal contrast and cinematic sweep, the instrumental collective spoke volumes without expressing a single word during its 105-minute set. The Montreal-based octet, in town for a two-night stand, had the foresight to utilize the cathedral's premium acoustics as a secret weapon."
