Chicago

Better Late Than Never..

Blogger Stefania of Melt Your Face Off has just posted her review of the recent May 29th Chicago Vic Theatre show.

It seems as if she had a great time:

On Friday, May 29th I finally saw one of my favorite bands live…Doves: http://www.doves.net/. I can’t even recall the last time they played in the States. If they did they totally missed Dallas, DC, and NYC (any of the cities I could have seen them in since I discovered them in 2000). I am on their listserv and always get so jealous when I see dates in their native England. So I could hardly contain my excitement that after 4 years of releasing a new album they were doing a US tour, and one of the stops was going to be Chicago. At my favorite venue, The Vic. Could it be more perfect?

The show was not only amazing because the band is, but also because the crowd was so excited to be there. As you can tell in the videos the cheers and singing along were pretty consistent. In fact the band at one point got embarrassed that we were so adoring towards them. Well when you rarely come to see us, what do you expect?

Chicago Review & Photos

Venus Zine have posted a very positive review of the Chicago Vic Theater show:

Certainly, the band works very well together as a whole on stage. The backup vocals and catchy guitar rifts inspire compositions that can be bright and anthemic, even when the pedal effects create a beautiful distorted sense of reality. Friday night’s sold-out show at Chicago’s Vic Theater was no exception, and the layers and sense of texture the band brought out live were incredibly rich.

Further heightening the ethereality, the band used visual projections, which included a variety of scenes of Chicago, strips of endless road, and people dancing in a style somewhat reminiscent of the film director David Lynch. The effect was to create a sense of connection to the music as a whole versus the band members, who, at times, seemed to vanish into the backdrop.

Chicago: Thank You Doves Band!

Doves played to a sold out crowd at the Vic Theatre in Chicago this past Friday. I wasn’t sure how the Chicago crowd would be. I shouldn’t have worried. The crowd were simply amazing. Apparently it was the best show on the US tour so far. I’ve seen the band too many times to admit on here, but the show definitely is up there with the best.

Those that were there, know the band wished this writer a Happy Birthday, and they also gave a big shout out to the blog as well. Check out the video, thank you Diegovid for capturing this!

So thank you doves band for the most amazing Birthday ever.
