Jukebox the Ghost with Twin Forks at Metro (January 17, 2015)
Jukebox The Ghost
An Indie Pop, High-Intensity sound that puts a smile on your face and uplifting lyrics are the staple of Jukebox The Ghost. They are a trio of musicians who met when attending George Washington University and developed into their own band. They really love playing Chicago because it holds a place in their heart, which would make this live show a bit of a homecoming. They played their first headline show in Chicago in 2009. Also, they have played at Lollapalooza, and are rumored to be making their return this summer.
This show will be full of diehard indie pop fans, who are always a great crowd. If you have not heard of Jukebox the Ghost, their sound is most comparable to Fitz and The Tantrums or The Mowgli’s. If you’re looking for a fun time with a date, or a place to stay warm in the cold weather, this is a cheap option for a good time. Particularly if your date’s name is “Emily”, she is sure to love being serenaded by the enchanting tune “Oh, Emily”.
Twin Forks is a folk pop band with a folky twang similar to Noah and the Whale. An interesting fact is that “Twin Forks” was began by Chris Carrabba, member of the Dashboard Confessional. They have evolved into the band where he places the most amount of his musical effort. Be sure to check them out as the Folk-Americana opener.
