It is safe to say that a concert was outstanding if any band member goes out into a sold-out audience to crowd-surf after their encore. And that is exactly what James Bagshaw, lead guitarist and vocalist from Temples, did to close out a supercharged evening at Lincoln Hall on Friday, January 31. Temples came to Chicago ready to rock. And did they ever.
