Indie electropop duo Uh Huh Her lights up the stage with hypnotic, pulsating beats on a night that celebrates the release of its new album, Nocturnes, and draws attention to October’s National Breast Cancer Prevention Month. The pair’s dance-friendly vibe and swoon-friendly looks belie the sophistication of the melodies featured on their debut LP, a collaboration that draws from their diverse musical backgrounds and former jobs as piano movers. While ivory-tickler Camila Grey channels her classical training into soft and seductive synth phrases, Leisha Hailey keeps the rhythm with aggressive bass licks honed during her time in ‘90s indie duo The Murmurs. Supporting band Fences joins the girls on tour with a set of earnest tunes that will have punks pogo-ing in slow, poetic cadences while singer-songwriter Christopher Mansfield recites lyrics of quiet lament scrawled across his tattooed arms. To kick off the night, opener Jarrod Gorbel channels his tumultuous past experiences with his former indie-rock band, The Honorary Title, into pitch-perfect folk and Americana ballads about love, loss, and lament.
Modeled after the stunning “Estavovski” Opera House in Prague, House of Blues Chicago has played host to countless legendary and contemporary musicians. The venue’s intimate stage is flanked by an expansive dance floor, accommodating standing-room crowds that come to share in the aural feast or glimpse the spectral bluesmen that hold eternal jam sessions in the rafters.
