On Saturday (6/11), The Antlers, and Little Scream shared the bill at Chicago’s Metro. Touring behind their brilliant new LP Burst Apart; the band quickly sold out the venue.

This was also Little Scream’s second time playing Chicago this year; first seen supporting Sharon Van Etten on 4/9 at Lincoln Hall.

If you’ve spent any time listening to The Antlers, you know how much is going on in the background of every song. There’s such a rich atmosphere that I almost hesitated to see them because I was afraid they wouldn’t be able to pull it off. I mean, 45 years ago The Beatles had to stop touring because the music they were making couldn’t be reproduced live. Fortunately for us, The Antlers are a band of the moment, and technology has come a long way.

I heard every song I wanted to hear, and was glad to recognize that some of my favorites are very popular amongst the crowd. The song “Bear,” especially, was one I thought might get skipped. The song is just depressing as all hell, but it’s written and performed so well that it always puts a smile on my face. There’s something to be said for the fans of The Antlers when we can all belt out a line like “We’ll make only quick decisions, and you’ll keep me in the waiting room. And all the while I’ll know we’re fucked, and not getting unfucked soon.” [Music. Defined.]
