Concert Recommendation: Jurassic 5, House of Blues Chicago, Sunday, April 18
The House of Blues has several shortcomings, the most glaring being the
manufactured atmosphere. It's rather like the "shabby chic" furniture for
which one pays a premium for someone to distress new tables and chairs to
make them look old. While the Empty Bottle and the Metro look lived-in, the
House of Blues is just some designer's idea of what a cool venue should look
like. On the other hand, it is convenient to public transportation, it has
good sight lines and, most importantly, it has quite clean acoustics. Which
makes it the ideal venue for Jurassic 5. With a lesser sound system, you might
miss their expert rhymes like "etiquette" and "predicate."
Jurassic 5 play Scratchback at the House of Blues,
329 N. Dearborn, Chicago, IL, 312.923.2000 at 6:30 p.m., Sunday, April 18.
