After seeing Slowdive put on a fantastic show at Pitchfork Fest 2014, I was eager to see them perform in a club setting. I got the opportunity a couple of weeks ago when the band returned to Chicago to play the Vic Theatre alongside minimalist rockers Low, who opened the show with a brief-yet-intimate set. Waiting for Slowdive to hit the stage, I noticed a lot of familiar faces in the crowd– members of Russian Circles, Implodes, and Ryan Graveface (Graveface Records, BMSR) were all in attendance. The band finally came on and opened with their self-titled cut, followed by highlights such as “Machine Gun,” “Blue Skied an’ Clear,” and “Allison.” The band came off even bigger and louder than before, surpassing the sound quality of some of their recorded material. At the show I also met a guy who drove all the way from Ontario to see them play again; if that isn’t a testament to how great the band is live, I don’t know what is. Hands down the best reunion tour of the year.

Pictures from the Vic Theatre are in this post. More of them can be found after the jump, alongside Slowdive and Low’s complete setlists.
