Minor Characters at Lincoln Hall on 3.01.2013
Chicago quartet Minor Characters celebrated the release of their new EP, Heal Me, Healing Times, with a show at Lincoln Hall this past Friday (3/1) with Pet Lions and Brother George. It was the most triumphant performance I've seen from the group yet, as they tried out their more experimental new material for a local crowd and took a fresh approach to older songs. Did you catch their EP release show? If so, what did you think? We've got pictures from their set in this post, but unfortunately none of Pet Lions or Brother George.
Minor Characters will begin touring down to Austin, TX for SXSW later this week. As discussed, they'll be playing our joint day party with Epitonic at Swan Dive & Barbarella Patio on Wednesday, March 13. The party starts at noon, their set is at 2:15PM at Barbarella Patio, and admission is 100% FREE. JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound, Generationals, The Besnard Lakes, Ume, and many more acts will perform on two stages through the day. If you're headed to Austin, come hang out.
