The Black Angels at the Vic Theatre on 4.19.2013
The Black Angels

On Friday night (4/19), Austin's The Black Angels came through Chicago with tourmates The Allah-Las and Elephant Stone for a performance at the Vic Theatre. They performed many songs from their new album, Indigo Meadow, but also made sure to shift back to the widely familiar Phosphene Dream for "Entrance Song," "Telephone," "Haunting at 1300 McKinley," and more. Despite fronting Elephant Stone, Black Angels sideman Rishi Dir joined them on sitar for "True Believers" and "Black Isn't Black." Were you there? If so, how was it? A set of pictures from their 4/19 performance at the Vic are in this post.

More of them can be found below, along with the full setlist, and a few shots from their in-store at Reckless Records earlier that day...
