I’ve been listening to “SGL” (stands for Shot Gun Lover) by the Minnesota-based band Now, Now for over a year. A song with a melody that’s hard to get out of your head and one that’s so catchy, it ended up being added to every single one of my seasonal playlists since last summer.

Just last week, I was excited to kick off my July with a surprise after-show featuring Foster The People and a handful of local bands at Chicago’s East Room – a small bar in the Logan Square neighborhood. Foster The People is currently on tour with Paramore and announced select intimate after-shows in cities like Brooklyn and Los Angeles for a reimagined take on their 2017 release, Sacred Hearts Club.

In case you already didn’t know, I have successfully written a show review on every live performance I’ve seen this year so far and it’s something that I am trying to hold myself accountable for and am hoping to stick with through the rest of the year. June was a wild month for me in terms of live music: not only did I see Taylor Swift’s reputation World Tour in Chicago on June 1 and 2 (you can read the review here) – I also saw Bon Iver, Middle Kids and Overcoats – three very different musicians and three unique experiences.
