Kelly Pratt is currently on tour with St. Vincent and David Byrne, acting as co-musical director as well as one of their many band members. Since last week he’s been chronicling that tour on BrooklynVegan. The latest installment was written last night while David was talking about his new book with Greg Kot at The Music Box, but here’s a new entry written this morning, special for BV Chicago…

We’re here, Chicago! Playing the third show of our tour at the Chicago Theatre tonight. A beautiful venue and one of my favorites anywhere.

As you can see from my photos, the horn section and drummer have gotten down to the nitty gritty of eating at the most unhealthy places possible. It will be an all veggie day for me.

See you tonight,

We hope you already have a ticket because tonight’s Chicago show is sold out.

Read the previous and longer installments of ‘On the Road’ HERE and HERE, and stay tuned for next week’s on

Check out some photos that band member Jon Natchez snapped backstage at the Chicago Theatre, and some videos, below…..
