Tycho- Concord Music Hall (Apr. 10, 2014)

Tycho is easily one of my favorite ambient/chillwave DJs today. He is without question one of the most talented producers out there and watching him live would be a hell of an experience, especially at Concord Music Hall. Right now, he’s touring under his new album, Awake. As with most west coast chillwave DJs, Tycho isn’t…

The Neighbourhood- Aragon Ballroom (Mar. 24, 2014)

The Neighbourhood (NBHD) isn’t exactly in CasaSwoop’s electronica, Nu Disco, etc “wheelhouse” per se but we think that at least a few of you would be interested in seeing them live, honestly I probably would too. They’ve seen a revitalization as a result of their most recent hit “Sweater Weather,” which has been bouncing around the…

Chromeo- Lincoln Hall (Mar. 5, 2014)

Chromeo is coming to Chicago this weekend. Honestly, I don’t know why we’re even posting about it, because tickets are sold out (which is a fucking shame) and they have been for a while now. That being said, if you like them enough, you should scalp tickets because it’s going to be an incredible show.…

Digitalism- Primary Night Club (Feb. 22, 2014)

Digitalism is coming to Chicago on February 22 and it would be a mistake to miss this one. Digitalism’s sound is a bit difficult to categorize because they never really stay in one “genre” for very long. The German duo from Hamburg incorporate rock, deep house, and synth elements in a lot of their songs,…

Delorean, Until the Ribbon Breaks- Lincoln Hall (Feb. 18, 2014)

Delorean will be coming to Lincoln Hall on Feb. 18. If you haven’t heard of this Catalan group, you should check them out. Known for their indie house crossover sound, they’re currently touring under their new album “Apar.” The album is a refreshingly dancy and exciting indie electro work. Of course, this music is totally…

STS9 LIVE – Aragon Ballroom (Feb 8, 2014)

If you are into instrumental rock bands that blend their sound heavily with electronic music, funk, jazz, and reggae, then STS9 is most certainly an act you should go check out this next February 8 at the Aragon Ballroom here in Chicago. The band, originated in Georgia, has produced a gran total of 11 albums,…

Com Truise, Phantoms- Lincoln Hall (Feb. 14, 2014)

Com Truise will be coming to Lincoln Hall on Feb. 14. For all you Deep Electro and Chillwave fans out there: it’s worth it. Com Truise navigates the space between chilled out and pumped up and it’s always a surprise. The music is honest and doesn’t try too hard, but also doesn’t fall into that classic…
