With quiet intensity, Michael Milosh’s silken vocals washed over a captivated Thalia Hall crowd. Better known as Rhye, Milosh’s live show expanded on the dynamics of his discography with each song fitting into the next like a symphony, with the singer waving his hands to his fellow band members like a seasoned conductor.
Picture this: adolescent energy at maximum level, costumes and blue face paint to match the band, hands perpetually in the air, foolhardy attempts at crowd surfing, every last lyric proclaimed in distinctly teenage-like devotion. And you pretty much have the idea of Brockhampton’s two nights of sold-out shows at House of Blues.
Following a lengthy 4-year hiatus, Portland indie rockers Typhoon returned to the Metro stage as part of Tomorrow Never Knows to bring their third full-length album, Offerings, to life. Centered around a man’s loss of memory and identity, the record is a grand, sweeping, and ominous instant masterpiece. Luckily, their Chicago performance did justice to both this daring conceptual opus as well as the band’s long absence from the stage.
