Motion City Soundtrack
House of Blues-Chicago
Sunday night was the final show of the MTVU Tour featuring Motion City Soundtrack w/ special guests Mae, Anberlin, & Metro Station.
I can’t say enough about how much I love MCS, I have seen them a dozen times both here in Chicago and in their home town of Minneapolis. They never disappoint! Sunday night was filled with energy, good times, and strobe lights…pink ones!
Though I have to say I would much rather see MCS at First Avenue than anywhere else. Chuck it up to getting older, although I do blend into the crowd quite nicely. ; ) First Avenue just has a different feel to it… there is a lot of history there, I’m sure it has nothing to do with the balcony being a 21+ area with it’s own bar.
Anyway, getting back to Chicago . The band was great, they did a nice mix of playing new songs along with older stuff. I feel they did a fabulous job playing a little bit of everything from every album. I hate it when you go to a show and the band just plays new stuff, not so fun. Justin started taking song requests when they came back out for their encore. I must comment on Jesse’s hair, OMGoodness is it long! I have never seen his hair so long before, I love it! Rock it out Jesse! I was happy to see Jesse having his own little area next to Tony. Usually he is squeezed in on the middle of the stage.
I am really sorry there aren’t any pics of this show. It has been a while since I have seen a show at the HOB. They do not allow camera’s inside. But for a small fee you can check it. Damn the man!!!!
