Papa M Up North Kids No. 2 from Hole Of Burning Aims (Drag City) Add to Collection
On Thursday, October 10, CHIRP welcomes Montreal-based indie pop band Young Galaxy to Schubas at the corner of Belmont and Southport. The band is touring behind their fourth LP Ultramarine (Paper Bag Records), released back in April. It's a disc full of big pop melodies, dreamy synth washes, and the husky alto vocals of Catherine McCandless. You might have heard them on CHIRP lately, with tracks off the new album like "Fall For You" or "In Fire."
If you've become smitten with the new Chvrches album over the past couple of weeks, or if you've had Washed Out, London Grammar and/or Pure Bathing Culture in your regular 2013 rotation, you'll want to check out this show. Arrive early, so you can catch the support set from Chicago native Mister Lies. He'll play gentle, fragile pop soundscapes supported by sparse bass that's big and booming enough to reverberate that old harp-like wooden arch over the Schubas stage.
Please note that the show is 21+. Show starts at 9 PM, tickets cost just $12 - bring a friend.
