Jim James at the Vic Theatre on 4.20.2013
On Saturday night (4/20; Record Store Day), Jim James came through Chicago in support of his triumphant new solo album, Regions of Light and Sound of God, for a sold-out show at the Vic Theatre with tourmate Cold Specks (aka Al Spx). James performed the LP in its entirety (and in order), and used his encore to dabble in My Morning Jacket, Monsters of Folk, and New Multitudes tunes. Were you there? If so, what did you think? A set of pictures, some videos, and the full setlist from the 4/20 show are in this post.
Speaking of My Morning Jacket, they'll hit the Chicago area on Bob Dylan's AmericanaramA: Festival of Music tour for a pair of shows in July. Those shows happen at Chiefs Stadium on July 11 and Toyota Park on July 12. Presale tickets for the Toyota Park show are on sale now; the password is festival. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Saturday (4/27) at 10AM CST. Presale tickets for the Chiefs Stadium show will be available starting on April 30 at 10AM.
