On Saturday, May 11th, CHIRP welcomes Miirrors to Chop Shop! 

Motion and Picture, the band's 2023 debut album, was a work-in-progress for many years -- 22 years to be exact. Yet for band leaders Brian McSweeney and Shawn Rios, the decades spent collaborating and perfecting their sound were well worth it creatively.

The two met serendipitously. Strangers, Rios and McSweeney sat near each other on the same plane headed to Atlanta 22 years ago. McSweeney was listening to music on a Sony Discman and shared a Sigur Rós song with Rios.

He said, “‘Hey man, listen to this.’ And that was literally the first thing he ever said to me. And I did,” Rios recalled.

After exchanging information, the two kept in touch throughout the years -- whether in line at shows or through the city’s eclectic music scene -- until McSweeney moved back to Chicago in 2014. As their friendship grew over time (and after the two eventually left their previous bands), their time making music together became a reality.
