On a Thursday night in Chicago fans of pop music got to sing, dance, and hear words of self acceptance and more when K. Flay rolled into town.
With a new album out now “Solutions” and a roughly 90 minute set K. Flay managed to play through pretty much the entire new album as well as do an acoustic set, a cover, and the fan favorites. Between running and dancing around the stage singing and playing guitar on songs K. Flay had the crowd dancing and singing along the entire set.
Opening up the night was Your Smith who managed to create the sound of an ensemble of musicians on her own. Between singing, dancing, playing guitar on songs, mixing and setting the song up she seemingly made it all look effortless. She got the crowd sending off with ease to kick off the night.
Next up were Chicago’s own Houses. With songs that could be on any indie rock playlist, to a song that could be heard being danced to in any nightclub, Houses showed their wide range of genres they play from. With a 40 minute set Houses, mastermind by Dexter Tortoriello, made sure that the crowd was always enjoying themselves for every second of it.
