Show Review: Females in Music – Dagny at the Subterranean and Sunflower Bean at Lincoln Hall

As 2018 continues, I’m happy to say that it’s May and I’ve continued writing about every show I’ve attended this year. It’s no easy feat and trying to find time to write about my experiences takes a lot of will power – but I’m going to try really hard to keep going! I Recently I had the chance to attend another two concerts in Chicago – the first was a show from Norwegian pop singer Dagny featuring support from Baum (one of my current faves) at the Subterranean in Wicker Park – and New York natives Sunflower Bean at Lincoln Hall with support from female rockers Dream Wife.

The Most Painful Scheduling Conflicts at Lollapalooza

Show Review: Frenship, Yoke Lore And Imaginative Pop Music


Last weekend, I was lucky enough to cover Frenship and Yoke lore at Lincoln Hall – my favorite venue in Chicago. The sold out show – taking place on the last Saturday of April – was just about the halfway mark of the band’s first headlining tour – The “Good Morning, Goodbye” tour that has been hitting all major U.S. cities and even making stops in Canada. This is impressive, considering the band has yet to release a full length album.
