[#TBT] The Shakes & Rumbles: This Ain’t What I Am (Live @ Side Street 2014)

#TBT time, everybody!

Here’s noise punk duo The Shakes & Rumbles coming from Lake Zurich, IL to play at the 2014 Battle of the Bands. This was my first time seeing them live and they were certainly a fun live act.

[#TBT] Osmin: La Primavera [Manu Chao Cover] (Live @ Elgin Books 2014)

Welcome to another installment of Throwback Thursday!

I’m surprised I haven’t mentioned this person on my blog yet. This is my buddy Osmin AKA Oscar. This video was captured for a purely acoustic set at Elgin Books (the best bookstore in Elgin, IL right now). He decided to rock a Cruz Azul jacket while covering a Manu Chao song to serenade everyone.

[#TBT] Rune the Lion: Hide and Sink (Imogen Heap Cover) [Live @ Tropical Smoothie Cafe 2014]

Throwback Thursday time!

This another video from my friends in Rune the Lion whom I’ve mentioned on my blog before. I caught their set back years ago and they ended it by covering “Hide and Seek” by Imogen Heap except they do it with instruments instead of harmonized vocals. Feel free to insert your own OC reference here.
