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.

I’m a tad late with this, mainly due to the recent sunshine across most of Britain over the weekend. Like Doves say, “Catch the sun, before it’s gone”…

The band opened with Kingdom of Rust track “Jetstream,” which seemed to mirror the overall performance, as the night continued to build progressively, just like the song.

NME.com Reviews Wiltern Show

“Jesus, man, it’s been a long time since we’ve played here and it’s good that you’re with us,” frontman Jimi Goodwin told the huge crowd, who cheered back in response.

“It’s Saturday night and you’re dressed for a night on the town,” he added, surveying the audience. “There’s even a couple f***ing in the top row.”
