CONCERT REVIEW: The Microphones at Thalia Hall

I came down to Chicago with two friends to see The Microphones at Thalia Hall on Wednesday. I got into The Microphones and Mount Eerie (Phil Elverum’s other project) a few years back but hadn’t listened to them in some time before recently revisiting them and deciding “I don’t want to miss this” when I saw The Microphones were coming

I’ve wanted to see Algiers for years now, having been following them since their 2015 debut album. They were originally coming to Cactus Club in April of last year but had to reschedule their tour twice before finally making it here this past Sunday. It ended being a relatively quiet night, with a crowd of 20 people give or take,
