Concert Review + Photography: Astronautalis at Schubas Tavern (Chicago)


Just before the show started I found myself pack up in front, with the rest of the sardines when I overheard a conversation between a young love lady and an older gentleman. The man asked, “Have you seen him before?” and she replied, “No. I’ve never heard of him, but my friend showed me his picture and said he was good.” Personally, “good” isn’t a word I would use to describe Astronautalis in a live show or just listening to his albums. “Brilliant”,”epic”, “anomalous”, and “paradoxical” seem more fitting.
