Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds brought their new album and their Coachella-bound tour that previously visited SXSW and NYC for three nights, to Chicago Theatre on April Fools Day. Greg Kot writes:

No one paints a picture quite as vividly with lyrics as does Cave, and part of his appeal is built on pure storytelling. In his black suit, jet-black hair and white shirt, he was a dapper gentleman preacher who raved as if the Old Testament were also a scandal sheet, rife with betrayal, temptation, blood and lust. “People,” Cave declared, “they ain’t no good,” and he spent a good portion of the nearly two-hour performance counting the ways.

The also awesome Sharon Van Etten opened the show. Here are some pictures, and the setlist. More below…
