The Curls

The Curls Play Through The Tidal Wave

Day One opening act is never easy, but for The Curls it was complicated even more with moments of heavy rain. The local group with a core of five members expanded to 11 at times as they quickly got the growing crowd moving. It was fun to Maria Jacobson of Fran join the band on stage to sing backing vocals and dance. Every one on stage wore shirts support the local non-profit No Cop Academy and their message was well received by the crowd.

As they hit the first few cords of their latest single, “Tidal Wave”, the dark gray clouds opened up. Despite the rain and their instruments getting wetter and wetter they played on.

The entire band played with extreme energy, but Jenny Marshall really stood out as she played synth, trumpet, sax, and rarely stopped dancing.

Their set included “Slice of Life”, “Prickly Feelings”, “Do It Right” and more, but closed perfectly with chants of “fame, fame, fame”. The Curls definitely gained hundreds of more fans today.


Pitchfork Music Fest: A Chicago Showcase

There are always a few slots on any music festival for local acts, but this year Pitchfork has really gone above and beyond. Not only have they put together diverse line-up, they have crafted a line-up that will truly showcase the diversity of Chicago music today.

You have an array of Hip Hop and R&B, with SABA, Rayvn Lenae, Nnamdi Ogbonnaya, Kweku Collins, Noname, and Open Mike Eagle, that the city on a larger scale has become known for. However, you have a strong presence of the DIY scene represented by Melkbelly, The Curls, Circuit Des Yeux and Paul Cherry.

While there are so many more acts from the city that could fit perfectly with the sound and feel of this Fest, they have done a remarkable job pulling National touring acts, obscure Avant-Jazz group, and talented Chicago musicians to create what should be the best festival this Summer.

Pitchfork Music Fest is this weekend, July 20th to the 22nd, at Union Park in Chicago.
