In The Town: Silversun Pickups

September 25th, 2012

I had the pleasure of catching the Silversun Pickups this past weekend when they performed in Chicago at the Aragon Ballroom! SSPU is on my shortlist of favorite artists, and I have been dying to see them live for several years. They did not dissapoint! Bassist Nikki Monninger is on maternity leave as she is expecting twins, so Sarah Negahdari of The Happy Hollow filled in and got a warm reception from an impressively enthusiastic crowd. After performing a stellar set, they returned for an encore that culminated with Well Thought Out Twinkles. The supporting acts, Atlas Genius, and School of Seven Bells were also good.
