Tomorrow Never Knows, Night 4

I began Night 4 of Tomorrow Never Knows at The Hideout for a comedy variety show put on by the masterminds behind Adult Swim's Delocated television series. The "Delocated Witness Protection Program Variety Show" featured comedians Jon Glaser and Kurt Braunohler (among others) and it was straight up hilarious. Urge Overkill also swung by The Hideout to play a couple songs. Then I raced over to the Metro and enjoyed the musical stylings of Matrimony and Lucero (pictured above). For more of my Night 4 images, check out the TNK Tumblr here.

Tomorrow Never Knows, Night 3

Night 3 of Tomorrow Never Knows was the most special night of the fest for me for two reasons, one being that I photographed The Walkmen. They were actually the first concert I ever saw at Lincoln Hall shortly after the venue opened in 2009, so photographing them for Lincoln Hall was a cool moment. The second reason is that it was my first shoot at The Vic, a venue I've loved and frequented for over a decade. And, of course, it never hurts to throw Father John Misty - and his trademark dance moves that involve a ton of Shakira hip shaking - into the mix. (For my previous photos of FJM, click here and for more of my TNK Night 3 photos, click here.)

Tomorrow Never Knows, Night 2

Tomorrow Never Knows, Night 2 featured Chicago's own Wild Belle headlining their first show ever (perhaps you remember me talking about them here). Supporting them at Lincoln Hall were dreamy newcomers, High Highs. Then I ran over to Schubas and was lucky to catch the excellent up-and-coming Tampa punk trio, Merchandise. All in all, yet another great night of music! A few more of my Night 2 photos can be found over at the TNK Tumblr.
