Grimes @ the Empty Bottle on 3/14/2012
Grimes

While our BV Chicago stage at 'Hotel Vegan' and the official BrooklynVegan SXSW showcase at Bar 96 were in full swing (more on 'Hotel Vegan' later), Grimes played a sold out show at Chicago's Empty Bottle on Wednesday, March 14 with support from tour mates Born Gold and local project Ultrademon. A full set of pictures are in this post.

Grimes (aka Claire Boucher) then hightailed it down to Austin, TX for SXSW, playing the Pitchfork official showcase on Thursday night, as well as a few other sets throughout the fest.

If you missed her this time around, as announced, Grimes will be playing at Pitchfork Festival 2012 in Union Park in July. Tickets are still available.
